5 Ways You Can Travel Without Even Leaving Your House

Due to coronavirus, international travels have been put on ice until further notice. Now, while this may have affected some of your travel plans and left you feeling down, you need to look on the bright side. Not being able to travel just yet might be a blessing in disguise. You get the opportunity to make better preparations, learn more about the local area you plan to stay in, and even learn the local language so that you don’t need to pay a travel guide. 


Frankly, aren’t you thankful that you’re not dealing with travellers diarrhea right about now? Besides, you don’t always have to leave the country to go someplace new, so here are 5 ways for you to travel without leaving your house. 

1. Take a tour of a virtual museum
One of the great things about technology is that it allows us to explore locations without being physically there. If you’re longing for a travel experience, why not visit a museum virtually? Several museums around the world are now offering virtual tours, including the British Museum in London and the Musée du Louvre in Paris. 

This is an opportunity for you to enjoy the museum experience and explore different ancient cultures without dealing with the crowds you'd have encountered in the physical location. Trust us, this is much better because you can do it from the comfort of your couch. 


2. Practice how to cool delicacies from other countries
If you’re like the rest of us, one of the things you enjoy most about traveling is being able to try out different foods from different cultures. Food is a great way to learn new things about different cultures. But since international travel is undoubtedly a no-no at the moment, you can substitute this by learning how to prepare some international delicacies. 

There are a plethora of international recipe books that you can buy online that will teach you how to make meals from different countries. Simply select the one that appeals to you most and fills your kitchen with foreign aromas. 


3. Learn a new language or two
Learning a new language isn’t just an additional skill to add to your tool belt. A country’s language is connected to their culture and heritage as a whole. With travel plans currently being put on hold, you can try learning a new language altogether. This will go a long way to give you an immersive understanding of the culture. 

Additionally, when you actually get the opportunity to travel, you’ll be well equipped to blend in with the locals. To learn a new language check out some language apps, watch foreign movies, and even watch some helpful videos on YouTube. 


4. Order themed subscription boxes
If you’re not someone who’s big on cooking, but would still love to enjoy a foreign food experience, then maybe you could consider a travel-themed subscription box. These boxes include a variety of snacks and drinks from the country of your choice, and you don't even have to step in a kitchen. 

You could even make a whole theme out of it, where you pair your box with a tv show or movie from that country. Try and do some research on some websites that offer delivery services for these subscription boxes. 

5. Read travel blogs 
So, you may not be able to travel, but you sure can read about other people’s travel experiences. Reading your favorite blogger’s narration of their travels to some of the countries you look forward to visiting can give you a deeper understanding of what to expect when you finally go there. Better yet, some of these blogs provide helpful tips and advice that can help you with the locals, so read away!
