Summer 2020 has been an unforgettable summer, although, not in the way most of us would like. Quarantining, and social isolation has shifted vacation plans and the way many of us would prefer to spend our weekends. However, just because we can’t physically get away doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy that summer beach feeling.
Envision that deep blue sea, and the sound of crashing ocean waves. Take a deep breath in, and smell that fresh ocean air….. Need a visual to accompany, try this virtual experience from Myrtos Beach in Kelafonia, Greece.
Play some calming relaxation music (or reggaeton works well too) to hear the sounds of the Caribbean. Watch the clouds slowly move by and envision the sun reflecting off the water. This 360 of Amilla Fushi Resort in the Maldives provides some mood music and great scenic images to help along with way!
