Read a Travel Book

Reading a good travel book is a relaxing way to pass the time at home and transport yourself to another time and place. A few classic travel books to read include:

A good way to discover new books is a travel book subscription such as The Wordy Traveler or Bibliophilic Excursions which will send you books from around the world to your house every month or quarter.

Make Travel Inspired Drinks

Why not make a cocktail (or mocktail) inspired from some of your favorite travel destinations? For example you can reminisce about your trip to Singapore by making a Singapore Sling at home. I like this book which has recipes and a history of 80 cocktails from around the world.

Eat Your Way Around the World

Taste your way around the world by making or ordering food from around the world.

If you enjoy cooking, search for recipes online, buy a global cookbook or take a virtual cooking class like this one from a real Italian grandma.

If you would rather not cook, enjoy international cuisine by ordering delivery or takeout from restaurants in your hometown. Another option is to treat yourself to a monthly world food or snack subscription box like Universal Yums.


Travel in a Box

We already mentioned travel book and world food subscription boxes above, but there are other travel themed subscription boxes you might enjoy at home including subscription boxes for travel or outdoor gear, artisan products, spices, tea and even travel subscription boxes for kids.

Travel Themed Board Games and Puzzles

This world travel themed board game is perfect for a fun game night with your family or partner. If you prefer solving jigsaw puzzles, consider this world landmarks puzzle or this USA travel themed puzzle.

Virtual Travel

Google Arts & Culture is a platform that allows you to take digital tours for free of some of the world’s most well known museums. You can see all the available museums here, and some of the most famous pieces of art up close.

You can also virtually explore national parks and attractions around the United States with Google Arts & Culture or cities and natural attractions around the world using Google Earth.

So as you can see there are many fun ways to experience traveling from home.
