Different ways of Travel done from home

1. Watch Travel Shows

The best way to travel from home? Travel to distant lands from the comfort of your own couch! Platforms like Netflix have a ton of great travel movies and shows that can really take you to another place for an hour or two. Plus, cooking shows are a great way to scratch that itch, show off beautiful countries, and give us an insight into flavors and culture.

2. Learn a language

A great way to prepare for a future trip is to learn a new language. Travel from home by joining language learning apps or even taking classes online. For example, if you are planning a trip to Italy, you can learn how to order all the flavors of gelato!

Join a tutoring platform like ‘Italki’, where you can choose a tutor for private lessons in almost any language. Alternatively, apps like ‘Babbel’or ‘Duolingo’ can help you learn basic phrases.

3. Research a future journey

There may be reasons why you can’t travel right now, but there’s nothing stopping you from planning a trip for the future. Planning a trip is at least half the fun of your trip, getting you excited for what’s to come and making you feel like traveling even when you’re still at home. Use Pinterest and Instagram as a way to gather information and images for your trip, choose the type of vacation you want, and even start comparing flight prices.

4. Listen to Podcasts and music from around the world

Let your feet tap and your mind dream by listening to travel music or podcasts from around the world. The Big Travel Podcast is the perfect way to travel from home, while listening to travel stories from celebrities around the world. Or transport yourself to fiesta in Mexico with lively Latin music or to the sunny streets of Lisbon with soulful fado music.

5. Take a Trip Down Memory Lane

Travel from home and back in time by viewing your photos and videos from previous trips. Use your time at home to create a beautiful scrapbook, a photo album or an epic travel fly!

Maybe you haven’t had time to upload your memories to social media or youtube? Make a great reel to share with your friends and use one of our favorite travel quotes to create a caption.

6. Redesigning your home

Doing a little ‘travel-inspired’ home renovation is a great way to travel from home. Maybe you have some souvenirs or trinkets from your adventures that you could incorporate into your home design? Not only will this look beautiful and unique, but it will also give you that warm ‘travel feeling’ when you see it.

Think about the items or styles you want us from previous trips. Thus, we repainted our wall in a Moroccan warm tone, bought beautiful ceramics from Portugal, carpets from Morocco, as well as beautiful bamboo furniture from Indonesia.

7. Be creative in the kitchen

Travel from home through the flavors of international cuisine! Do you miss a particular dish from a country you have visited in the past or do you want to try a specific recipe from a country on your bucket list? Put on your apron and experiment in the kitchen! Try the Global Vegan or Near & Far cookbook.

8. Read travel books and magazines

9. Make a Travel Bucket List

Is there anything better than dreaming of future trips to remote locations and castaway islands? You may not be able to hop on a plane right now, but a great way to travel from home is to create an epic bucket list for the future.

10. Playing Board Games

Who doesn’t love a good board game during the holidays or on weekends? It’s a great way to spend time with friends and family, and if you choose a travel game, it’s a great way to “travel at home”!

Popular games, such as Monopoly, now have “world” editions, and the popular game “Ticket to Ride” has an edition for many countries around the world. This is the perfect way to jump from destination to destination and scratch

that ‘travel itch’ in the process!

11. Read Travel Blogs

Travel Blogs are the perfect way to get inspired, learn new information, and travel from home through beautiful imagery. There are hundreds of destination guides at ‘Salt in our Hair’, as well as tips and tricks for traveling sustainably, becoming a digital nomad and setting up your own travel blog. Use these to fulfill your travel cravings!

12. Travel the world with virtual Tours

Spend an evening traveling from home by taking part in a virtual trip! Numerous tour companies offer virtual tours of some of the world’s most beloved sites. Visit the Great Wall of China, take a historic tour of Venice, or explore some of the world’s most iconic UNESCO World Heritage sites, all from the comfort of your own couch.

Traveling from home in 3D

You can even view Google Earth and randomly pick a place to explore (click ‘3D’ for an extra cool effect). So get ready to bring those whirlwind travel experiences to you and satisfy your travel hunger until you can hop on a plane again!

13. Meet People From Other Countries

One of the best parts of traveling is meeting new people from all over the world! There is a way you can do this while traveling from home. For example, you can join (online) courses or clubs that offer activities from other countries, such as a photography course, language exchange, salsa dancing, muay Thai boxing or a sushi course. This can be a great way to meet people in your area who have similar interests or like to learn about new cultures.

14. Stay local and travel from home

If you can, consider traveling locally. We are normally so desperate to fly to new and exciting countries and climates, that we don’t realize the beauty that lies right under our noses. There may be wonderful destinations on your doorstep that you have never seen before! Go for a walk nearby and watch the sun go down, or hop in the car and go on a weekend adventure in nature.
