At the moment, all of our plans are on hold. But that doesn’t mean we here at Bloomberg Pursuits aren’t planning the experiences we’ll rush out to enjoy when it’s safe to do so. We’re sharing our ideas with you in the hopes that they will help inspire you—and we’d love to hear what you are daydreaming about, too. Send us your ideas at daydreams@bloomberg.net, and we’ll flesh some of them out for this column.

Today’s daydream is from spirits expert Brad Japhe, who knows the power of a great drink isn’t just intoxicating—it’s transportive. Which is why, when this is all over, he’s headed straight to where his love affair with fine whisky began.
