Synthravels – Exotic Tours in Virtual Worlds
What do you do if you’re serious traveler, been to almost every corner of the world and now confined to the burdens of life by work, money and other adventures-inhibitors?
Well worry not!
In times when my grandmother would have opened a falafel stall in Second Life if she had known how to get there and Jaffe did just that (or similar) its time for someone to see the potential and establish the bridge between geekland and the real world, and Synthtravels does just that – a guided tour to every popular virtual world.
is the first organization to offer a complete guide service to all the people
who want to make a tour in virtual worlds without knowing these new realities,
even if they have never put their feet in these strange, synthetic grounds".
I think this is fantastic idea. The online multiple gaming world is a fascinating sub-culture that captures millions of people across the globe and now with Synthtravel, non-gamers can now get a glimpse of these worlds with their cult-building/islands/locations which can now turn into cult sightseeing tours.
Whats more, I can think of thousands of sick-worried parents that watch their teenagers kids spending hours and hours in these virtual worlds and genuinely concerned that their boy or girl are members of some satanic or digital-pagan sect…. with these tours they can learn about these worlds and perhaps better understand their children (or husbands…).

think that also in synthetic worlds what really matters is natural
context? No problem at all: forests of pixels and digital jungles are

And you can take a basic, VIP, trends, Shopping or Danger tours. As a non-gamer myself (I’ve created an avatar recently in SL but I’m so clueless I couldn’t navigate myself there and left after 15min) I will definitely take a tour and blog back about it.
I wonder whats their business model?
