Evolutions of Travel: VRcation

What do we really seek when we travel? Holiday deals are sold to us like mass products that make vacations seem no more than fabricated tourist experiences. So how is passively travelling within this comfortable tourist bubble, far removed from local realities and authenticity, different from seeing a destination through VR-goggles? Emma Verhoeven explores this with ‘VRcation’ − a ficticious travel agency that sells virtual vacations. Order this new-style trip online: mix sights, environments and tours to your own desire, complete with home-delivered accessories. Put your goggles on, stick your feet in the sand and enjoy your personal package deal without even packing.
