4 In At Home/ Photo Feature

Virtual Vacation | Edition 1

It’s March 29th, 2020, and the world is in a very strange space.

I don’t want to say too much about COVID-19, though. I have a feeling that you are already being bombarded with information, warnings, heartbreaking news, and memes (okay, the memes can be kind of fun) on what feels like a never-ending basis. I know I am.

Instead, what I am hoping to do with this post is to give you a break. A few moments of your day where you can think about something lighter and just escape.

But how do we escape during this period of social distancing, when many of us are self-quarantining and so many others are putting themselves at risk working long, challenging hours?

It’s official: It’s time for a virtual vacation.

I’ve rounded up six posts from my Photo Features series to give you a chance to visit whichever place jumps out at you.

Photo Features are light on details and heavy on imagery, which seems fitting right now. Going to the grocery store is intimidating enough – let’s leave the complicated trip logistics for another time.

Where you’ll be heading:

  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • Yosemite National Park, California
  • Oaxaca City, Mexico
  • Frigiliana, Spain
  • Bangkok, Thailand
  • The Great Ocean Road, Australia

Maybe you’ll choose to visit them all. That’s five countries on four continents over the course of one cup of tea. Not too shabby.

Traveling through a screen may not be a true substitute for the real thing, but there are several upsides to a virtual vacation:

  • No passport needed
  • Skip the packing
  • Avoid stressful security lines
  • Save yourself the jet lag
  • Travel straight from the couch with your favorite blanket
  • Go whenever you feel like it
  • Take breaks as needed
  • Be in one country at noon and another just moments later
  • Enjoy the ultimate budget-friendly escape
