As we take this time to stay home and social distance for the health of this beautiful world, we are all very much missing being out and experiencing all of the sites, sounds, and cultures that our normal travels bring us (and you wouldn't be on this site if you didn't have the travel bug like we do!). But with travel plans on hold for the foreseeable future, what are we to do?? We've come up with what we think will get us as close as we can to the real thing without ever having to leave the comfort of our own homes.
But How?! We've thought about how to best re-create the sites, the sounds, the smells, and the tastes from your own home or town while also making sure you aren't just sitting at your computer all weekend. Every virtual vacation will be a combination of virtual tastings, classes, and tours, as well as activity recommendations that mimic what you'd be doing in the host country and a gift box with fun gifts to help you set the scene.
Will it be an exact recreation of what a real vacation to the host country would be? Of course not. But we promise that it will, at minimum, be a fun and relaxing reprieve that will have you waxing nostalgic about your last vacation and looking forward to planning the next. So, where do you want to go?!
Oh! Did we mention we'll be donating 10% of the proceeds to local food pantries in Madison, WI? We're proud to support our local communities during this rough time. Just wish we could do more!
