"The Off Season" : I was at the Garni Temple, Armenia, in December. It is a pagan temple that even pre-dates Armenia's becoming the first country in the world to adopt Christianity in the 3rd century AD. The temple was constructed approximately 2000 years ago.
That day, there were no other travellers at Garni. In fact, the only people I recollect seeing there were some guards and temple staff. And no surprises for guessing why, the weather you see in the photo speaks for itself.
Everyone probably thought I was crazy to be there but I loved it. Perks of travelling in the low/off season.
Cut to today - This is the off season the tourism industry dreaded. March-May are summer vacations for kids in India. This is when many Indian families holiday in India and abroad. Apart from Indians, the other large bunch of travellers are the Chinese who anyway couldn't travel earlier during their holidays. The way things are and the rate at which borders are being closed, it seems like European summer may also be impacted. I feel bad for those in the industry who are making losses but it also brings up a very key point of business, and that is - Cash Flow.
It's a reminder to everyone, individuals and businesses alike, that things can happen overnight and manage your cash flow wisely when the going is good.
For those sitting comfortable today, be judicious in your usage of resources. Reduce, reuse and recycle. Plan like you know there will be a rainy day.
For the time being, frugal is the new flamboyant. What say? .
