2022 will be a year of new beginnings and new goals for my personal life, travel agency, and virtual assistant company-Amon Ra Travel and Tours (Pty) Ltd.

2021 was a year of great misery for the travel industry as many travel businesses closed down due to lock-downs and restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the pandemic presented new opportunities for me to expand into; new hobbies and avenues for my business.

I started a new hobby this year, playing a game called Blood Bowl which was created by a company called Games Workshop in the United Kingdom. Blood Bowl is essentially rugby on a Monopoly size board.

In 2021, I also discovered the Virtual Assistants Association of South Africa on Facebook and decided to join the association. This is an opportunity for my travel agency to network with fellow Virtual Assistants and venture into the Virtual Assistant industry as a new stream of income for my travel agency.

One of my personal goals for 2022 is to play more Blood Bowl games with my current Blood Bowl team of the Lizardmen. The Lizardmen team is made up of Saurus blockers, Chameleon Skinks, normal Skink lineman, and the massive Kroxigor. I still need to complete painting them in 2022. I also have other teams in Blood Bowl that I want to finish building are the Imperial Nobility Blood Bowl team. I have built the Black Orc team but have not painted them yet which I will do in 2022. I am also getting the Wood Elves Team which I plan to build and paint in 2022 and a mixed team called the Old World Alliance which includes the humans and dwarves.

I would also like to introduce my Blood Bowl league to fellow VAASA members and to the local Amanzimtoti community to get more people interested in playing Blood Bowl. I have included the link to my hobby club Discord at the bottom of the blog.

At the start of 2022, I will be promoting my travel agency by advertising it more on social media as the COVID-19 pandemic winds down and more countries open up for tourists to visit. Hopefully, I will network with my fellow Virtual Assistants in assisting them in finding suitable corporate travel packages. The countries I will promote this year as go-to holidays destinations are Mauritius and Thailand.
