Travel Inspired Zoom Backgrounds from Firefly


Share this post!

We have been missing travel so much lately and I’m sure the sentiment is the same for most of you. These days our company is holding meetings via Zoom instead of getting together in person. As travel agents, virtual meetings with other advisers and clients is nothing new but it’s also not the norm.

That’s why we wanted to share a few travel-inspired Zoom backgrounds that were provided to our company. Here’s a preview of what different backgrounds come in each file. So if you are competing with friends or family to have the “best faux destination” maybe these will help you out! I’m personally on a world tour surprising my Zoom attendees with a new location daily!

Spend your chat lying on the beach under an umbrella with the crystal clear shoreline only a few feet away.

Or better yet let your loved ones know you trekked out to the bluff just to share this sunset view with them.

Maybe you are on a deserted island and can only pick up a signal from the beach once a day to communicate with friends.

Or you could be stranded on the Hawaiian Islands, no complaints here.

I’m sure some of you will want to live your dream in this Bora-Bora-like set up where you can step out of your bungalow as soon as your Zoom is over and take a dip in the sea.

And everyone has that friend with a glass of wine in hand. Share this backdrop with them so they can claim to be sipping their favorite red straight from the vine.

Doing a little island shopping? Share your view of the island you are thinking about purchasing with your co-workers. They’ll start thinking it’s time for a raise and wonder if you’re really coming back to work when all of this is over.
