When we think of taking a break, we instantly think of traveling. However, since we are all doing our part by staying at home, the reality is: we can’t go out!
Now while the lockdown may feel like an unplanned extended holiday, that doesn’t mean we cannot turn it into an actual vacation. We just have to use our imaginations and be creative. Now, how exactly do you go about it?
Here are five ways to create your own vacation at home:[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]1.Read a book.
Buying a book is way cheaper than a plane ticket. Get to travel to your country of choice by burying your nose into a book. The trick is to choose one with a setting that takes place in your dream destination. [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]2. Go for a foreign film or series.
One thing we can get out of traveling is learning a few words in a different language. By going for a foreign film or TV series for a change, you can easily pick up certain words in a language you’ve been wanting to learn. With so many streaming platforms available today, foreign films and series are easily accessible.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]3. Explore a new cuisine.
A lot of people travel for food. Whether ordering food in or cooking for yourself, trying out a country’s signature dishes is another way to travel while at home. We suggest the latter. After all, food becomes more special when you prepare it yourself. Thankfully, there are so many recipes available online.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]4. Watch travel vlogs.
If you’ve been itching to travel back to a country you’ve already visited or to a place you’ve never been to before, then travel vicariously through someone on YouTube by watching a travel vlog. It’s the perfect activity to do while enjoying a meal or pampering yourself.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]5. Take a break from social media.
Some people travel to escape or get off the grid. You can do so through a social media detox. Set the period of time you wish to stay offline, then commit to it. You’ll be surprised at how much more time you suddenly have on your hands for other activities you’ve been wanting to do.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]They say that when the going gets tough, the tough get going. Now that we are going through tough times, we need to take a break every once in a while. You don’t really have to go far to take a breather. With these 5 tips, you can travel while staying safely at home![/vc_column_text][vc_raw_html]JTVCRElTUExBWV9VTFRJTUFURV9TT0NJQUxfSUNPTlMlNUQ=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row disable_element=”yes” shadow_x_offset=”0″ shadow_y_offset=”0″ shadow_blur=”0″ shadow_spread=”0″][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
