This Black-Owned Company Is Taking You On A Virtual Vacation Every Day During Quarantine
If you’re getting tired of tuning into lives on Instagram, perhaps it’s time for a virtual vacation via Instagram stories.
High Spirit is a Black-owned lifestyle and travel accessories brand based in London that focused on making stylish theft-proof backpacks for globetrotters.
Since the pandemic, High Spirit has been taking travelers on virtual tours, highlighting a new destination every day.
“We even got some messages from some of our viewers saying that it [virtual tours] helps with their mental health,” says High Spirit in an email to Travel Noire.
A typical virtual travel experience with High Spirit starts out with you virtually boarding an airplane, not initially knowing where you’ll be heading to. You’ll then learn where you’ll be transported to that day and the stories feel so realistic, you’ll think you’re actually there.
Not only do the stories take you to various destinations, but you’ll be able to explore accommodations, adventures, and cultures of places you may have never thought of visiting before.
In addition to getting your mind off of the heaviness of our world, you may get an idea (or two) for future travel!
Tune into High Spirit’s virtual travels via their Instagram stories every evening and explore the world while at home.
