What a trip!
It’s never fun to have to cancel or postpone travel plans, but we are hearing stories of people across the country “traveling” the globe and having incredible adventures, without ever setting foot outside.
Going a step beyond the usual staycation, these fauxcationers are using some out of the box thinking to create meaningful experiences through virtual and hands-on activities. Despite being homebound, they’re coming up with itineraries that allow them to see far-flung places, taste exotic foods, and learn about other cultures.
Inspired by these intrepid souls, and some magical staycations of our own, we’re planning our “trips” with the help of a little technology, a lot of imagination, and a few new things for the home.
The first step in any big adventure is deciding where to go. That’s no different for a fauxcation, except this time, the sky’s the limit! Think about all the places that you’ve always wanted to see, then decide how deep a dive you want to take—a fauxcation can be anything from an epic, multi-day adventure to a quick getaway. (We recommend devoting at least a full day to immerse yourself in the experience and satisfy your wanderlust.) The best part is, you can skip booking flights and hotels because you are already there!
