6 Reasons Why You Should Travel
By: Brittany Racca COVID-19. By April 2020, there wasn't a source of media in Iberia Parish and the world that didn't encompass those words in some type of coverage. Lives changed overnight and we’re still not sure how life will look post pandemic. Milestones such as weddings and graduations were postponed or cancelled, and home became our sanctuary.  The pace of life slowed down allowing time for families to reconnect. More people had time to relax, reset and rediscover hobbies they loved that they never made time for.
