Traveling While at Home – Experience a Virtual Vacation!

We can’t travel right now, but we can keep on dreaming.

(Or as I like to call it, PLANNING!)

While we are staying safe at home, it doesn’t mean we can’t take a virtual vacation on YouTube!

I don’t know about you, but even though I’m working from home, I find that I have a LOT more time on my hands right now. I’ve been looking for creative ways to fill it and not feel like my brain is oozing out of my ears at the same time. I’ve been baking bread (or trying to anyway) like everyone else on the entire planet seems to be! But one other thing that I’ve found comforting is researching destinations, partly to learn more as a travel professional and partly for absolute enjoyment. In my research, I’ve found that some of my favorite places have FANTASTIC YouTube channels! So I’m sharing a few with you here. I am pleased to say that I am directly affiliated with each of these internationally renowned hospitality groups.

So when you are ready to go, I’m ready to help you get there!

If you’re already dreaming about (I mean PLANNING!) your next vacation, contact me now with your ideas. I’ll get my planning wheels turning to begin making your next vacation experience your best one yet (as soon as it’s safe to do so.)

Travel With Raelinn - Sandals Royal Caribbean

Travel With Raelinn - Belmond Venice-Simplon-Orient Express


I’ve saved my personal favorite for last. Belmond. I cannot say enough good things about them. They define luxury experience at its very finest and I am proud to be affiliated with them.
