World Travel Trick Number 1: Virtual Tours
So you must have heard by now that WORLD TRAVEL has been CANCELLED and I have to say this is a travel fanatic’s worst nightmare!
However, don’t despair fellow travel lovers, our next five posts are dedicated to sharing some of our trusty tricks of the trade to show you how you can travel the world during 2020 and question if you are really in isolation or not.
These fun-filled virtual tours remind us of some of the most amazing places we have visited over the years and we are very excited to share them with you! Don’t forget virtual tours are a great way to get a feel for a new destination and they give you a whole heap of ideas for planning your next holiday.
So hold onto your hats people you will be riding rollercoasters, rubbing shoulders with Royalty and sipping champaign in Berlin in just a few clicks – enjoy!
There is no better way to start your day than visiting the HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH! Disney recently released a 360-degree series that helps you get in amongst all of the action!
So why not take a stroll down Main Street and stop by the little red corn dog van for lunch and then head over to the old fashioned ice cream shop for dessert – I did! Be sure to also take a roller coaster ride on Expedition Everest and my personal favourite Splash Mountain before finishing your virtual Disney day at the Happily Ever After show- enjoy!
Want to see what those cheeky animals really get up to when we are not around? Well, now you can with two of our favourite Australian Zoos – Taronga Zoo and Symbio Wildlife Park.
Taronga Zoo has just launched Taronga TV which steams 24/7 inside the animal enclosures – careful though the lion and elephants appear when you least expect them to!
Symbio gives you an up-close and personal look at some of the cutest Australian animals like Koalas, Kangaroos and Wombats of course!
The first time we visited New York we knew we would be back, we loved everything about it from the Empire State Building to Times Square, eating banana pudding at Magnolia Bakery, drinking peanut butter concretes at Shake Shack and rowing boats in Central Park (well Aron rowed I didn’t) – it sucked us right in and we just can’t get enough of it! I have a taken this tour a few times now and it just makes me want to go back even more!
Ever wondered how the other half lives? Well, stop wondering because you are about to find out! Before you know it you will be having a cup of tea with the Queen and chatting about what the corgis have been up to… well, that’s not entirely true… but you will be able to check out the inside and outside of Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace.
We enjoyed visiting Windsor castle and can’t wait to go back and do the night time tour. Hopefully, this time we will bump into Her Majesty!
This Bavarian beauty, once home to Ludwig II (the crazy king of Bavaria) looks like it’s straight out of a fairy-tale and has to be our absolute favourite castle of all times. It’s full of history, charm and is rumored to be the inspiration behind Disney’s Sleeping Beauty castle. This is one seriously spectacular castle inside and out that I would happily live in!

Located in Berlin and packed with history there really are no words to describe the Reichstag building. We stopped by on our last trip to Europe and you just have to experience it for yourself to appreciate the unique feeling of having champagne at the top of the cupola while overlooking the Brandenburg Gate – spec -tac-ular!
Ready to take the tour?
Sydney Opera House
Obviously, I am including the Opera House because it’s an Australian icon but also because I loved dancing on the Concert Hall stage when I was younger and more importantly it is where we got engaged. Take the tour and be sure to stop by the Opera Bar for a view of the Harbour Bridge before heading inside.
