Travel Tips

With many Americans sheltering in place and working from home, staying connected is more important than ever. New remote workers turn to Zoom to stay in contact with coworkers and other business associates. The video conferencing service offers a fun option to jazz up your virtual meetings: virtual backgrounds. This option allows users to select a unique backdrop to display behind them, instead of wherever they are in their home.

 

Hotels around the world offer images to use as virtual backdrops to inspire travelers. Check out these properties for an escape, all from the comfort of your home office.

Ecotourism for Families in Southern Europe

As ecotourism and responsible travel become more popular, destinations look for ways to promote their rural and natural areas and preserve local ways of life. Agritourism — staying in farms or rural houses — is perfect for family travel, offering a chance for children to meet and interact with local people. It is not only a highly sustainable form of tourism, but also a more relaxing vacation compared to trips trudging through cities with children in tow.
