I had my whole summer planned, and I had planned to go to the Caribbean. I didn’t plan to just visit one island, but I had several islands in mind, and I saved up a year in advance, just so I could take the trips. The worst thing happened to me, and I was injured on the job, which then made it impossible for me to go anywhere. I was injured so badly, I couldn’t work, and I was told that my healing time was going to take several months. The injury occurred at the worst time, just a couple months before my trips.
Fortunately, I did get travelers insurance, so that I wouldn’t have to repay for my trip, but I was very depressed that I couldn’t go anywhere. I use Skout on a regular basis, and I decided that instead of being down about my trip, I would virtually travel, using Skout. Skout created virtual travel a year and a half ago
, and it’s become very popular on the network. Many people have spoken of traveling virtually, but it’s never something that I thought I would try for myself. After being stuck at home, and in pain, I needed something to lift my spirits.I decided to pick the same places that I was going to visit this summer, and virtually visit them on Skout
. I could not believe all the things that I learned, just by paying a virtual visit to the Cayman Islands, as well as Puerto Rico. I was able to learn about some of the culture, as well as the foods they eat, and I was fortunate enough to meet people from the area. Starting out, I chose one location, then I chose to go to every place that I was going to visit this summer.
I’ve been virtually traveling on a regular basis, for the last month, and I’ve collected an impressive amount of friends in each country that I’ve visited. I’m now more excited to go on my summer trip than ever, although it’s been postponed. I know that when I do finally take my trips, I’ll have people that I met through Skout, so that we can talk, and I can be given tours of the areas.
