The new way to holiday: will technology take over?
Share This Article:
Do you know that feeling when you really want to get up and go somewhere, but at the same time you just can’t be bothered to get out of bed? Be it to that 9am lecture (that you SHOULD go to, by the way) or even meeting that friend that actually isn’t that important anymore (because staying home in your PJ’s is more attractive). Well, how would you feel about going to a different country, exploring all the famous sights, enjoying that atmosphere and eating that country’s food – all while still in bed?

What do you think about this? I can see the benefits and the great opportunity for elderly and disabled to ‘visit’ places that are out of their reach and budget. Or would you settled for the traditional holiday where you actually go there and deep your feet into the sea? Is the world moving forward too fast, or is it something we should embrace? I would like the idea of going on holiday while in bed though… Whatever your thoughts on this, if you do decide to book a holiday, or go to Japan to do a VR trip to New York, be sure to check the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office website for safety travel advice and tips for a smooth journey, both in the air and in an airplane that doesn’t take off! (Also, don’t forget that our simple meds such as Vicks is illegal in Japan, so be SURE to check the FCO pages before you pack your bags!)
