Miss Travelling? Here are 5 Ways to Fuel Your Wanderlust At Home

 

Getting itchy feet? We know you’re probably longing for your next trip while you’re at home during this time of restricted movement! Lucky for all of us, we live in the age of the Internet, so finding ways to get inspired by travel without stepping foot outdoors is a lot easier than you might think. 

 

During this time, here are 5 great ways you can fuel your wanderlust while also staying at home: 

 

1. Revisit Travel Memories

Let’s be real here, the reason why travel seems so longed for is because of all the fond memories you have from your past travels! Why not browse through your phone or camera memory card for old photos, and create a scrapbook of the memories you’ve had in the destinations you’ve visited? By sorting through the pictures and putting it down in place, it will definitely keep your wanderlust alive and maybe even give you an idea of where you’d like to go next. 

 

2. Binge-Watch Travel Shows

Now that you’ve sorted through your memories - it’s time to get inspired! Since you’ve been lounging around during the RMO and becoming a couch potato, why not make your time worthwhile by binge-watching travel shows that are available to you? Look to Netflix or YouTube for a treasure trove of movies, documentaries, and series that will inspire your next getaway!



If you’re more of an audiophile, you could even try podcasts! Pop in your earphones for interesting travel stories, vacation tips and tricks, and more while you do your house chores. 

 

3. Go on a Virtual Tour 


 

With inspiration, now you can take action! Since you’re not able to “tour” the places you’re interested in visiting right now, you can still have a taste of your ideal destination by going on a virtual tour! “Walk” through some of the world’s most prestigious cultural institutions like The Met Or even go on a “ride” on a roller coaster in Walt Disney World! The best part? No queues! 

4. Create a Bucket List

If you’ve exhausted all the travel shows, podcasts and virtual tours on the Internet, it’s time to start creating a bucket list! With all this time on your hands, take this window of opportunity to think about where your next adventure should take place once the world has started opening its borders again. Whether you’re dreaming of delicious street foods or exploring the best hiking trails in Malaysia - the sky’s the limit when it comes to your bucket list! 

 

5. Make your plans on a vision board (Or Pinterest)

While you’re creating a bucket list, you should also create a vision board to make your travel plans seem more concrete! A vision board helps you to visualize what sort of adventure you might want to take in the future. Fill up your vision board with brochures, pictures from old magazines or drawings of the places you might want to go! You can even include inspiring travel quotes or phrases to add to the board. 

 

Alternatively, you might want to opt for a digital vision board if you prefer having less hassle. A great website to use is Pinterest - where you can pin your favorite images onto your Pinterest board for inspiration! 

 

With so much going on right now, it can be mentally exhausting and overwhelming to do too much of anything, so sit back, relax and don’t be ashamed of indulging in your travel daydreams! The process of fueling your wanderlust will definitely help you remember how beautiful the world really is - so take a moment to appreciate our world and think of how we can make it a better place once we are able to get up and get back out there.
