Bastiaan 'Naam' Hooimeijer is an individual who embraces the perks of advanced digital technology by recreating his version of a relaxing time with a personalized virtual reality holiday. The VR diorama is named 'A Piece of the Universe' and is an impressive example of Google Blocks construction. Additionally, it strengthens the potential of VR technology within the travel industry.

The digital holiday is not realized in the traditional sense. While people seek to escape to a warm place with breathtaking views and an inviting seaside, Bastiaan 'Naam' Hooimeijer prefers the comfort of a "small caravan in a poky piece of land, surrounded by piles of discarded junk." With a pair of wand-like controllers, the gamer can interact with his personalized virtual reality holiday, while embracing his own idea of fun.
