“Can you visit 12 new places you’ve never been, meet someone new, will you accept this travel challenge and join us?”

I know visiting 12 new places is a lot, but really if you break it down, you can go to one new place every month. The places don’t need to be far away, you don’t have to jump on a jet plane and fly across the country, although that would be nice, but not realistic for most people, atleast not 12 times a year!

But you could get out of your own backyard, take a half-hour drive, to see something you’ve never seen.
Maybe go to a new restaurant, try a new coffee shop, check out a new wine tasting bar, or drive to that quaint little town you keep hearing about!

You get the picture! So, grab your favorite travel buddy and hop on this travel challenge ride…….
Lets make 2017 the year of new experiences, new sites, new friends, lets travel Gods world together one city, one beach, one country at a time, claim it!

Follow us on facebook and share your travel challenge experiences with us, where are you going this month?

We will be live on facebook this weekend at our first travel challenge destination, follow us.

See you on the road!

Virtual Reality the new trend for Travel

Is VR- Virtual Reality the next big trend for marketing travel?
We here at Virtual Honeymoon agency think it is!
Marriott hotels and some Cruise lines are jumping on that virtual travel experience.
Virtual reality is a great way to attract clients, imagine being able to pre-experience a destination, hotel or cruise ahead of time before you invest any money in booking!

The Marriott launched a great Virtual Reality marketing campaign with their Teleporter.
Imagine, getting swept away on a beach vacation, complete with your hair blowing in the wind, the smell of the ocean and the mist spraying you while your virtually walking along the white sand beach!


The Marriott hotels are on the right track and some of their hotels also have Virtual Reality – VR headsets in their rooms for clients to experience some of their destinations in the privacy of their rooms, very exciting future in store.

Virtual Reality is part of the reason Virtual Honeymoon was born!
We envisioned our clients to be able to pre-experience a destination before booking, by interactively matching their top 2 destinations and being able to test drive their honeymoon, with videos, virtual tours, google maps, virtual honeymoon itineraries and much more!

Florida Keys and Key West

Duval street Florida KeysThe Florida Keys are beautiful string of tropical islands stretching about 120 miles off the southern tip of the state of Florida.
Known for their laid back vibe and activities such as fishing, diving, snorkeling.
Key West is one of the favorites which is famous for Duval street, which has many bars, restaurants and shops, not to mention spectacular sunsets at Mallory’s marina!

Bungalows at Little Palm Island
Although Key West is fun place to be, if your going to unplug and connect with your loved one, we highly recommend checking out other Keys, our favorite was Little Torch Key, its just a short 15 minute boat ride out, but feels like your a world away!!!!

Little Torch Key is a beautiful private island with a adult only bungalow type resort, called Palm Island Resort.

All Bungalows are beachfront with your own private deck with sunken hot tub, as well as your own beach fire pit.Firepits at LIttle Palm Island
