I took a little dream vacation with my kids today. You're probably thinking what?! You can't travel right now, well you're right and wrong. Here's a luxury trip you can take without stepping foot outside your house. The best part, it will cost you next to nothing!

Kayak.com has come up with the most brilliant idea! They've given us virtual vacations that give you a complete taste of the culture, you get to see all the beautiful sites, and you even get to learn a bit of the language.

Right now they can virtually take you to

  • Amsterdam
  • California
  • London
  • Mexico City
  • Paris
  • Rio De Janeiro
  • Sydney Australia
  • Washington D.C.

The only thing that costs you a dime is the food. That, and we ended up paying $3.99 to rent the movie Rio, which was well worth it.

On our virtual trip we took a helicopter ride, saw all the touristy sights with 360 degree views, we visited a museum and we are made  Brazilian Black Bean Stew for Dinner with Brigadeiros (Brazilian Fudge Balls for desert!)

It's taken up so much of our day and we have all absolutely loved it.

Another idea if your summer vacation has gone in the toilet is to take a nice stay-cation here in Idaho. There are plenty of places to visit where you can still practice social distancing and discover all that Idaho has to offer for free.

  • Take kids o Jump Creek
  • Visit the Ferry Trail
  • Hike up Table Rock
  • Visit Freak Alley
  • Order food from the many local restaurants and catering companies that could use your support right now.

Where do you want to take your virtual vacation? Next up on our list, Sydney, Australia!
