What do I get on my London Holiday? You get a whole host of digital goodies to help create an amazing Holiday From Home, all without ever actually going anywhere.
An E-book for each day of the holiday - Read through it online or print it off for later. The ebook will include:-
Your guided virtual tour to the different destinations we'll "visit" during the holiday. Think part story, travel book and guided visualisation.
Activities both on and off the computer. These include websites to visit, web cameras, recipes, crafts, suggested films, books and music.
Audio - all the information will be available to listen to as an mp3 either on your computer or download it to your mp3 player. Great if you can't use a computer for long or want to do the holiday away from a screen.
Photos - lots of pictures to look and to help you imagine the places.
An exclusive VIP Travellers Lounge on Facebook, to share your Holiday From Home with fellow virtual travellers. It's like meeting fellow travellers while you're on your holiday.
Why would I want to go on a Holiday From Home?
Holidays can be a really hard time if you’re stuck at home. Everybody seems to be jetting off to somewhere exotic. Postcards keep coming through the door, with “Wish you were here.” It's hard to cope with all of this, when life is forcing you to stay in one place. Everybody wants to go away on holiday; but not everybody can. that's why Holidays From Home gives you the chance to have fun and relax, when you're not able to physically go away.
Won't it be hard, when other people are going away and I can't?
The honest answer is yes, it is hard, I still struggle with it. I would love to be going somewhere; but at the moment I just can't. I figure I have two choices get really down and upset about it or do something to distract myself. I choose the latter. At times it does feel surreal and it isn't a complete replacement for a "real world" holiday; but it is very different from anything else you'll do this summer. There will be fun, adventure and a touch of escapism. You'll get the chance to "see" new places and "meet" new people. So if like me, you want to have fun and forget about the hurdles life throws at you, then sign up to the London Holiday From Home.

Any questions left that I haven't covered? Then please get in touch... I will be more than happy to answer them for you.
Will I be alone on my Holiday From Home?
No - you can do the holiday with family, friends or carers. Or you can join in with the other virtual travellers in the exclusive VIP Lounge on Facebook. It will be a great chance for people to share the experience and have fun together; but this is optional.
I will be here, to help you on your way, acting as a virtual tour guide, I will be showing you the sites and taking you on a holiday to remember.
Do I need a computer?
To access the holiday you will need someone with a computer and internet access; but the holiday will be available to download onto an mp3 player or printed off to read at your leisure. So if you've got a willing person, they can do this for you - or if you are looking to buy this for someone else, then you can do this for them.
There are suggested activities like web cameras, online experiences and virtual tours; but these are just part of the holiday. There will be plenty of fun things to do for anyone that can't use a computer, you will not feel left out. When I came up with the idea of a virtual holiday I couldn't use a computer, so it's important to me that they are still accessible and fun, if you aren't able to go online for long or at all.
Do I physically go anywhere?
No. The London holiday is taken from home (hospital, hospice, day centre - wherever you are). It's the perfect solution for when you can't travel.
Do I receive a physical product?
No all the content is virtual, just like the holiday. You can download it and print it off or save it so that you have a hard copy to keep and enjoy. It's a truly green/eco holiday.
