How to Satisfy Your Wanderlust at Home

Take a Virtual Tour to Satisfy your Wanderlust

Thanks to the power of technology and the internet, there are more tools than ever before that enable you to see the world via your computer or phone screen. Online you will find a wide range of virtual museum tours, cultural events, and live nature videos so that you can virtually experience everything that the world has to offer.

Even though at this unprecedented time most of the museums all over the world are closed to the public, many of them are offering virtual tours, including London’s British Museum and New York’s Guggenheim. Zoos from all over the world are also offering a similar service with their animal live streams – and many of them are free of charge!

And if that doesn’t satisfy you, then you can always take up Instagram or Google pictures about dreamy locations that you plan to visit later on.

Mauritius was my second International trip after leaving my job and first International trip for @radhika_nomllers after leaving her job. And I had to convince her a lot to come because of course, we were scared about our future and weren't sure if we would be able to earn from just traveling. . . But after a little emotional blackmailing (It was my birthday trip as well) and a little coaxing, she agreed and decided to join me for 15 days in Mauritius. And I can tell you that neither of us regret that trip. Even though the future was uncertain and we had no idea how to make it work for us, Mauritius was everything that we had hoped it to be. And some more. . . It was just beautiful and enchanting. There were mountains to hike, beaches to chill, and mountain tops overlooking the ocean and the beaches. It was a paradise and the lack of tourists just made it all the more better. . . Honestly, I wouldn't mind going back someday to Mauritius to explore the remaining places as well. Because this gorgeous island is home to many amazing hiking trails, hidden beaches, and waterfalls and we could cover only a frraction of it the first time we were here! . . 📸: @radhika_nomllers

Bring a Taste of Far Away to Your Home

One of the best things about traveling the world is the unique food and drink that you can experience on your journey. Therefore, we recommend that while you are stuck at home, this is the perfect time to recreate some of your favorites. You can bake delicious cakes, make croissants, pizzas, etc. at home.

You can take it a little further by creating signature dishes of your favorite countries. For example, if you have a favorite pasta dish from your trip to Italy or a cocktail you enjoyed on your last trip, do your research, and recreate it at home. You can even order some Kopi Luwak Coffee to be delivered to your home directly from the plantation in the heart of the Philippines’ Luwak area.

Get Lost in a Travel Book

Travel books will act as a perfect resource of distraction and take you on a virtual trip. There are so many amazing travel books out there that will satisfy your wanderlust. My favourite ones are:

Do A Travel Related Home Decor

This is the best time to go through your travel photos and be creative with it. Being stuck at home is a perfect excuse to start a new creative art project with a travel theme. Here are few of my favourite travel arts –

Language Lessons

It’s never too late to learn another language. You can easily buy books to learn a new language or take an online course. Formalize the grammar or dive into the more in-depth courses. And when the world is ready to open their gates you will be able to easily fit in a new country.

Learn A New Skill

Always wanted to develop a new skill? Wish you could take better photos and/or videos? Thought about starting your own blog or vlog? Now is the perfect time to spend your time in all of this.  Take advantage of online courses coupled with all the extra time you have in your hands right now.

Also, wondering what will be the perfect gear for photography or videography when you are just starting out? Check out my favorite camera gears.

Listen to Travel Podcasts

If you enjoy learning about new places, then you can enjoy travel podcasts from the comfort of your own home and give you the traveling hit you are craving. Podcasts are great as you can enjoy them in the background while you do other tasks and chores around your home. Some of the most popular travel podcasts include Amateur Traveler and the Zero to Travel podcast.

 

 

Plan Your Next Trip

Just because you are stuck at home currently, it doesn’t mean that you will be forever. So, you could spend your new free time planning the trip of a lifetime when you can jet off again. Planning a trip is often something that we do quickly alongside our other daily commitments and responsibilities. But now you find yourself at home a lot more, you can take the time to do your research into some of the locations you have always dreamed of visiting.

From where to visit, how to get there, and where to stay, by the time travel restrictions are lifted, you can have the perfect vacation planned out. And this is a great way to temporarily satisfy your wanderlust too!

Think About What You are Missing

Take the time to consider what it is that you are missing about traveling and try to recreate it in your own home. If you are missing being in the outdoors, then spend more time in your yard if possible or head down to the local park if you are able. If you love exploring, then head to an area of town you have not been to before!

Bringing some of the joys of traveling to your own home will help to satisfy your wanderlust while your next vacation is on hold.

Take Care of Future Travel Needs

Travel will never stop. It will resume sooner or later and now is the time to prepare yourself. Research and order a new travel credit card, get that broken zipper on your suitcase repaired or review your packing list.
