I'm with Rotten, in that I believe leisure travel might recover sooner than biz travel, as recreational travel doesn't depend directly on tightening of corporate travel policies. All you'll need is to still have a job to pay for it!Meantime, I'm also with Rotten on the Canada in summer/Oz in summ...
