In the spirit of April Fools' Day, the Park Inn by Radisson launched a mock virtual vacation service by the name of E-Scapes. Promising to revolutionize the travel industry, E-Scapes is designed to help you "Experience the next generation of travel for a fraction of the price of a traditional vacation."
The idea is that your social media accounts would be handed over to a team of experts who would provide content like airport check-ins, Instagram-worthy travel photos and status updates from all the cool places people think you're staying.
Since social media is a vital part of life for many youth and young adults, even when they are on vacation, this is a comical way to address the pressures that come with maintaining a presence online and balancing time offline.
