Now you too can travel the right way... in style through the world of Simterra and the beloved home of my Sims.

Wright Way Travel Agency will help you travel the right way, in style, in the world of Simterra, the world where all my Sims stories take place. That's right everyone, one of my talented Simmers will take your Sims on an adventure around Simterra. You'll learn about culture, customs, history, language, and more while visiting picturesque destinations (exclusively offered in The Sims 4).

The plan is to take your Sims on a week-long selected excursion as if your Sim booked a trip with a travel agency. You'll get the VIP treatment with 5-star accommodations, celebrity chef prepared meals, and plenty of amazing destinations to explore (and all the selfies you could've ever wanted). Wright Way does want to make sure participants understand we cannot be held liable for accident, injury, illness, or death. (This is the Sims, and we will do our best to give your Sims the most autonomy possible).

To (qualify for) and apply for a vacation:
1) Choose from one of the three options and participate in the vote over on the blog (more description about each of the adventures below):
  • WEST COAST WONDERS: San Myshuno, Hidden Hollow, and Granite Falls
  • EAST COAST EXCURSIONS: Brindleton Bay (with the option to bring a pet) + Wintonborough
  • SOUTHERN ELEGANCE: Riverboat cruise through Willow Creek, Magnolia Promenade, and Sylvan Glade

2) Follow my Simterra Tales blog.

3) Leave a comment on the blog post (i.e. what what you're most excited about, what kind of Sim you think you'll submit, or what you most want to learn about my Simworld.)

4. Only one submission per person. This is to ensure everyone has a fair opportunity to submit a Sim. Don't worry. I'll take multiple trips. I do have a couple restrictions so please pay attention to these as they will affect your ability to send a Sim.
  • Please upload your Sim to the gallery using my hashtag #livinasimminlife AND #wrightwayadventures.
  • I have all the expansions, game and stuff packs through Tiny Living. I’d prefer limited to no CC. I know I use a lot in my own game, but it makes it easier for me so I don’t have to hunt down all your CC, download and add it to my game. If you really, really, really cannot live without CC, message me on the forums or on the blog and we’ll figure something out. I do have some default-replacement hairs, eyes, and skins so this may slightly affect your Sims' appearance.
  • Teens to elders are welcome to travel on these trips. (I can’t take children or toddlers because they really should travel with a parent/guardian).
  • Only cats and dogs are allowed to accompany their human companions. One pet per submission. For this reason the East Coast Excursions trip will only have 3 Sims slots and 3 pet slots.

5. Please complete the following travel questionnaire:
  • Your forums name/Gallery ID
  • Your WordPress or blogging ID so I know that you commented
  • Your Sim's name
  • Where we can pick your Sim up... (what world is your Sim from)?
  • Any special restrictions? (i.e. supernatural form - we don't want to fry any vampires; dietary - is your Sim vegetarian or vegan or only drinks plasma packs?
  • Your Sim's bio (If you'd like include aspiration and traits and any backstory. Be as creative as you'd like. Share any preferences of things you'd like to see, places you'd like to go, things you'd like to do, or what your Sim would most like to learn).
  • Let us know why your Sim wants to take this particular trip.

Deadline to submit questionnaires and Sims is midnight MDT on May 22nd (two weeks from today!).

I will only save a spot for you for up to 5 days after your inquiry, meaning… you need to send me your travel questionnaire and Sim by 5 days after you post a “save my spot” request in the forums. If you do not complete a questionnaire and send me a Sim by the deadline, your Sim will be on a waiting list for the next trip.

I can't wait to share travel experiences with your Sims! Dag dag, friends!

    1 day for arrival and check-in, 5 full days in San Myshuno (1 for each district), 3 days in Hidden Hollow, 3 days in Granite Falls, and 1 free day either in Granite Falls or San Myshuno, and 1 day to travel back and check out (itinerary to come)

    Your forums name/Gallery ID: lilypadmeulin

    Your WordPress or blogging ID so I know that you commented: driftwoodpoet

    Your Sim's name: Nia Whitmore

    Where we can pick your Sim up... (what world is your Sim from)?

    Willow Creek!

    Any special restrictions? (i.e. supernatural form - we don't want to fry any vampires; dietary - is your Sim vegetarian or vegan or only drinks plasma packs?

    Nope!

    Your Sim's bio (If you'd like include aspiration and traits and any backstory. Be as creative as you'd like. Share any preferences of things you'd like to see, places you'd like to go, things you'd like to do, or what your Sim would most like to learn).

    Nia is a young single who wants to see the world. She has the Romantic, Loves Outdoors, and Insider traits, and she wants to meet all kinds of people. She's not really got any particular skills in life, but she definitely wants to learn as much as she can - how to use chopsticks, how to camp...everything she can!

    Let us know why your Sim wants to take this particular trip.

    When she was younger, she used to go on trips with her grandparents, and she loved seeing all the strange places all over the world, but now, she lives in a house left to her by her grandmother and wants to have adventures in their memory. She wants to meet people, make friends, and above all, have fun.

    I would like to reserve a spot. I think I have the perfect sim for this adventure. It's just going to take me a while to remove the CC and meet the other requirements. :)

    EDIT: The sim is posted on the gallery!

    Your forums name/Gallery ID: 15aewar
    Your WordPress or blogging ID: Rendora
    Your Sim's name: Robina Larker
    Where we can pick your Sim up: Britechester
    Where your sim would like to go: East Coast Excursions
    Any special restrictions?: None
    Your Sim's bio: Robina was adopted by an older couple who couldn't have children. She's spent her entire life in Britechester and loves its creative atmosphere. Growing up, she found that the best way to cheer her parents up was to make them laugh. That's why she decided to become a comedian.
    Miss Larker is a huge fan of the Henry Puffer books and would likely be an Alpaggard. (That's the Sims version of Gryffindor.) Her best friend, Becca Clarke, is also a Pufferhead. They get along really well, despite the fact that Becca is more of an Ivybell (Slytherin.)
    One day, Becca and Robina were having lunch at Pepper's Pub. (The food there isn't amazing, but it is cheap.) Becca spotted a little kitten rooting through the garbage out back. Becca instantly fell in love with it. Since she couldn't keep pets in student housing, she urged Robina to take it home with her. Robina had never had a cat before and wasn't keen on adopting a stray, but she had a strange feeling about the feline. She acquiesced. Since then, she can't imagine life without Winston the Cat.

    I've written about her for an MSSSC challenge. Obviously, this is a different timeline, but it might give you an idea of her character: https://rendorasims.wordpress.com/2020/05/03/robina-larker/
    Why your Sim wants to take this particular trip: Winston often brings his owner little presents - rocks, seeds, that sort of thing. One day, he brought home a really old clipping of the Brindleton Bay Barker. It had a picture of a man on it that was oddly familiar. It was much the same feeling she had when she adopted Winston.

    As soon as she was able, she would schedule a trip to Brindleton Bay. She could use a vacation, anyway.

    Save my spot! I was going to choose West Coast, but I want to hang out with Rendora, so I'll do East Coast, and if I can do two, then West Coast, too.

    It'll be Spectrum CT-- she's not a goofball, so she should be more polite!

    This sounds like loads of fun.

    @lilypadmeulin I love the idea of taking adventures to honor someone's memory! Sweet! Did you have a vacation preference btw? Thanks for submitting.
  • AdamsEve1231AdamsEve1231 Posts: 6,155 Member
    @15aewar read the story. All I can say is wow... loved the twist ending! I'm excited Robina is a pufferhead. I have the Pufferhead pack in my game. Did she have any CC from that pack? Either way, I could add it if you'd like. A spellcaster who doesn't know she's a spellcaster? This should be interesting.
  • AdamsEve1231AdamsEve1231 Posts: 6,155 Member
    @CathyTea I'm so happy CT will be coming along. :) Depending upon how many submissions I get, I'll let you know if I can take Cathy on both trips.

    Your Sim's name: Cheryl Richards

    Where your sim would like to go: West Coast Wonders

    Where we can pick your Sim up: Newcrest

    Any special restrictions? None

    Your Sim's bio: Cheryl is very fascinated with two things: art and nature. Whenever she takes a walk around town or everywhere that has greenery, she would get inspired and come up with ideas on her next painting. Her favorite art styles are abstract and realism. What she normally paints are pictures of flowers, shrubs, mountains, and lakes. Many of her friends love photography, but she wasn't really that interested and that taking pictures on her smartphone is enough. That changed when she went to university and took some photography classes. From that day on, she'll not only paint pictures of nature, but also take some photos of nature. Aside from her interests in art, she also loves shopping and cooking.

    Why your Sim wants to take this particular trip: Cheryl is looking to expand on her art style and her skills in photography. As mentioned before, she wasn't much into photography until she took photography classes in university. Not only does she want to expand on her talents, but also meet new people and learn new cultures and languages.

    @Simslover163 Oh yay! Another photographer. I hope she enjoys learning from Hayden, who is also a photographer!

    Ooh! With me locked inside my home, I'd love to travel the world (even if it's just virtually)! You can find my Simself and his family on my Gallery ID (just tick the "Include Custom Content" box. I plan to have him and D.J. go on this trip. You might need to just change his eyes to the swatch left to the current one (since I use custom eyes, which changes the colours and the eyes I uploaded him with is too green).

    Your forums name/Gallery ID: divanthesimmer

    Your WordPress or blogging ID: divanthesimmer

    Your Sim's name: Divan Lampright

    Where your sim would like to go: Southern Elegance (I'd like to have him go on West Coast Wonders too, but it's okay if he only goes on Southern Elegance).

    Where we can pick your Sim up: Brindleton Bay

    Any special restrictions: None (that I'm aware of!)

    Your Sim's bio: Divan Lampright recently starred in The Geeky Bachelor as the (geeky) bachelor and found the love of his life, Lila Kaplan, on the show and they immediately eloped in a beautiful private beach ceremony. After that, they (and their dogs) moved into a large empty lot in Brindleton Bay, where they will start their own legacy. He recently started a new job as tech guru and his wife, Lila, is currently expecting their first child.

    Why your Sim wants to take this particular trip: Life was going well for the newlyweds, but the role of legacy founder quickly started to overwhelm Divan and he needed a break from it all to clear his mind and prepare him for this huge responsibility. He recently won the lottery (something he never thought would ever happen and he only won a few thousand Simoleons) and decided to go an a trip with his dog and BFF, D.J. He's been to Del Sol Valley and Sulani so far, but his ultimate dream is to travel the whole world.

    Where we can pick your Sim up... (what world is your Sim from)? Brindeton Bay

    Your Sim's bio
    Amelia likes to try a lot of new experiences with an absent mother and a father which didn't really care for either her or her various half-siblings she didn't really have time to do so. She had a bad home life (half the time being ignored by older half-siblings, and the other half the time looking after the younger ones) until she moved away to Brindeton Bay and worked hard as various part time jobs to earn enough money to go on this trip.

    Let us know why your Sim wants to take this particular trip:
    Amelia worked really hard to save to go on this trip because she wants to experience new places and new experiences People who might try to make friends with her might have to try to break down the wall she built because of the home experience

    Your Sim's name - Cathy Tea (notice a pattern here?)
    Where we can pick your Sim up... (what world is your Sim from)? - What's the one from Get Famous? That Hollywood-like one. It's only a temporary residence, though--she'll be moving to her dream home in Evergreen on June 5!
    Any special restrictions? (i.e. supernatural form - we don't want to fry any vampires; dietary - is your Sim vegetarian or vegan or only drinks plasma packs? - She will only eat excellent food currently (celebrity-thing). But I think her version that's on the gallery doesn't have that quirk yet. Please use the Spectrum CT--she's the most recently uploaded one, and she doesn't have the goofball trait, so she's much better mannered!
    Your Sim's bio (If you'd like include aspiration and traits and any backstory. Be as creative as you'd like. Share any preferences of things you'd like to see, places you'd like to go, things you'd like to do, or what your Sim would most like to learn).
    Cathy Tea loves people--and also gets overstimulated very easily. As a result, she needs a lot of time alone to decompress, relax, and process. She'll partake in deep conversations, then off she goes, to think and relax. It's OK. It's just her style. Give her free-rein, and she'll do fine!
    Let us know why your Sim wants to take this particular trip. Originally, CT wanted to travel to her home territory of the West Coast. But she is a huge (HUGE) fan of Rendora's writing! So when she found out that one of Rendora's Sims was scheduled for the East Coast tour, she had to sign up. She is that big of a fangirl.

    (But now she sees that others she's a fan of are going to other places! Oh, well! She can, at least, read of their accounts!)

    I'm looking forward to Evergreen also. :)

    @CathyTea You're so kind! I'm sure Robina would be happy to visit the West Coast, too. But, you know, backstory! :D

    In the original story, she wore almost exclusively Pufferhead CC. Feel free to dress her in Alpaggard colors if you like. (Or I could upload the Pufferhead version, if you like. :smile: )

    Your Sim's bio: Tyson Michaels is a fun loving goofball who lives the outdoors, making jokes about both himself and others, and just having a good time. Tyson loves riding bicycles, exploring nature, and being the life of the party. Most sims get annoyed with Tyson after a prolonged period of time around him due to his over the top personality. As a matter of fact, Tyson was left in foster care due to his parents tiring of his over the top personality.
    Why your Sim wants to take this particular trip: Exploring the world, having fun, meeting new people, and having new experiences. Life is an Adventure. There is too much to explore for one to just sit at home and do nothing all day.
