Have you always wanted to see the world but never had the time/money/etc.

Well then this vacation is for you. It's free and you can do it in the comfort of your own home. Always wanted to see the Great Wall of China, have real Italian food, ride the metro, the possibilities for your vacation have no end.

Close your eyes... Open them, you are on your dream vacation.

You can go anywhere you like for 5 days. Could go longer if you like after all it's up to you.

I recommend that you use google earth to take your vacation as well as other internet sites. Many tourist attractions have a 360o walking tour on their web site.

For this swap, you will create a minimum of 2 pieces of art, could certainly do more if you like. Must be your own art. Can be any size, or medium because it will be electronic.(Your art should show effort, but you don't have to have amazing skill, just try to do your best)

Ideas for art and travel guide, but create what you like.

How did you travel there? ie: If I were in Venice, Italy I would ride a gondola and draw a picture of that. Where did you eat? Maybe find an authentic recipe, of food you might eat on vacation and enjoy at home. Create a picture of the meal or the restaurant. Who are you with? What can you hear and smell? Where are you staying? What does it look like? What is the view outside your window? What tourist attractions will you see? Design a postcard of your stay.


Write up a travel guide for your partner. This doesn't have to be long can even be bulleted/list form. Just tell partner why you choose to vacation there and what you enjoyed doing on the vacation.

Create two pieces of art that show something about your vacation. Scan or photograph your 2 pieces of art to share with your partners.

Will send via e-mail to two partners. Can send same two pieces of art to both partners.

I have created a flickr group to post the pictures (optional), but it would be nice to see everyones vacation. Flickr group- http://www.flickr.com/groups/[email protected]/pool/

This swap is open to everyone, in good standing, and newbies with filled out profiles.

So sit back relax, and embark to your destination.
