Whether you had high hopes for a relaxing cruise, or had some action-packed adventure holidays booked, it’s fair to say that 2020 has well and truly kyboshed many of our travel plans. But all is not lost, there are plenty of creative ways you can get your travel fix – without even leaving your home.
But first – why not challenge yourself with this fun brainteaser from Exodus Travels and see how good your geography knowledge really is! Perhaps you have visited these 5 countries before or maybe they are on your bucket list, but the challenge is, do you know their flag?
Go on a virtual museum tour
Whilst seeing a Renaissance masterpiece up close and personal might be on your bucket list, a virtual tour is the next best thing. From the comfort of your own home you can explore some of the world’s most famous and well-loved museums – you won’t even have to queue! From the Louvre to the Vatican, the Smithsonian to the British Museum.
If museums aren’t your thing, you can explore zoos and aquariums – you can even take virtual tours of Walt Disney World and LEGOLAND Florida.
Organise your travel photos
Whilst it’s great sharing your snaps on your Instagram feed, there’s something special about having a physical photo, and what better way to relive all your travels and get excited about your next adventure than organising your travel photos.
Whether you create a travel album or create a gallery wall with all your favourite snaps, organising your travel photos will provide you with hours of entertainment and reminiscing.
Cook some international cuisine
Whether you had the best ever paella in Barcelona, enjoyed pizza by the Grand Canal in Venice, or enjoyed an authentic curry in Mumbai, get your taste buds tingling by whipping up a culinary storm in the kitchen.
You can choose to create one of your favourite dishes from a previous holiday, or maybe you could try your hand at a local dish you wanted to sample this year. You could even create a whole day of international cuisine who can resist croissants for breakfast!
Cosy up with a book
As the days get darker and shorter it’s the perfect time to immerse yourself in a book set in a far flung destination. Whether you prefer chick-lit or autobiographies there are so many books set in locations across the globe, you’ll feel as if you’re there.
If you missed the sun this year choose a book in an exotic location – you can almost feel the sun on your skin and hear the sound of waves crashing. Or if you’re embracing the impending winter chill why not choose stories set in colder climes. Of course, if reading isn’t your thing, you can listen to them being read on apps like audible, just sit back, relax, and journey to another world.
