Virtual Vacation – How to Have a Romantic Vacation When You Can’t “Get Away”
I came up with this date night idea last year when we found out we wouldn’t be able to go on any trips that summer.
My husband got off work one night, and I invited him to go on a virtual vacation with me. He was definitely skeptical at first, but he ended up loving it! He still talks about how much fun it was over a year later!
Wondering how to go on a Virtual Vacay? It’s simple! All you need is a computer, or another way to go online, and a bit of creativity!
This is how it works: You and your spouse pick out your dream vacation spot. The place you would go if money and time were not an issue.
Then, get to work searching online for sightseeing tours, fancy restaurants, hiking activities or anything else you would want to do while on vacation.
Plan out your ideal trip, and share photos with one another of the types of things you’d be seeing if you were on the trip together. Google Images works great for this.
My husband and I had a fun time competing with each other to find the prettiest view and the biggest animals!
This is a great way to “see the world” without worrying about job commitments, childcare, or finances! Since you won’t really be going on the trip, you are free to get as extravagant as possible with the planning, and have fun exploring travel options that might not normally be available to you.
You can write out your plans and tuck them away as a “someday” trip, or just keep them in a binder and record all your virtual travels together in one place.
This is one of our favorite date nights, and one of the easiest to do together!
If you are unable to take a trip this year, or just want to have some extra fun planning a virtual romantic getaway, then this is the perfect date for you!
The freedom is exhilarating, there are no restrictions based on strength, fears, money or time. Just fun, imagination, and a whole lot of romance!
