As we all know there are many reasons as to why we aren’t able to travel this could be money, work or worldwide pandemic... but regardless of this there are many ways that you can scratch that travel itch without actually travelling.
1. Read books about travel
There are so many books that are written around travel, some examples are below.
Into the wild - Jon Krakauer
The Bucket List: 100 adventures big and small
Alices adventures In wonderland
Wanderlost - Jen Malone
2. Watch movies about travel
Similarly, there are so many movies and tv shows that include a bit of travel, here are some examples:
Mamma Mia: here we go again
Journey to the centre of the earth
Eat Pray Love
An idiot abroad
Jack Whitehall: Travels with my father
3. Start planning your next trip
There will come a time again when we are able to travel freely again, so why not be prepared and start planning a trip to take once this is all over. I’ll write a blog post on how I plan my trips which will hopefully help you plan yours. In the meantime here are a list of places that I would recommend:
New York City
4. Watch Travel Vlogs
This is literally how I’ve been spending all my free time, I love watching travel vlogs for inspiration on where to travel to next. I’ve added a list of my favourite vloggers:
Marie Fe & Jake Snow
Haylsa & Kyle
I also have a couple of travel vlogs myself:
5. Watch around the world live streams
https://explore.org have many live streams from around the world from game reserves to cities such as New York and Dublin to meerkats in Miami and The bear cam at Brooks falls, Alaska.
This way you can visit so many different countries from the comfort of your sofa.
6. Food Why not take on the challenge of cooking different meals each day from different cultures all over the world. For example:
Spaghetti, Lasagne or Pizza to experience a slice of Italy
Tacos to experience Mexico
Have a croissant for breakfast and a baguette for lunch to experience France
Have some Spanish Tapas
Sushi from Japan
Pinterest is home to so many travel photos from all over the world, create your very own bucket list using pinterest as your source of inspiration. You can use it to plan photos you want to take in the different places too.
I hope this blog has helped make that itch a little less itchy. Let me know what places you plan on travelling to when this is all over!
