Explore the World from Your Living Room

The life-enriching experiences we get while travelling are one of the best things we bring home. When it's not possible to be on the road, you can still explore the world from your living room. The beauty of being in a global village is that it's never been easier to re-create some of that magic feeling we get while discovering a new destination, and here are some of our favourite ways to do just that!

Explore the World With Our Travel Guides

Curious about a country? Our in-depth travel guides are quick and easy-to-watch, and will take you on a virtual journey of a country in about ten minutes. Comprised of beautiful drone footage, sweeping shots of cities and nature, and beautifully written – with our travel guides – take a trip down memory lane by re-visiting somewhere you have already been or find a future adventure.

Tour the World With Jess and Joan

Last year, we sent two complete strangers on a trip around the world on a one-of-a-kind tour. Join Jess and Joan as they deep-dive into five unique places around the world, but with a fun twist, choose your own adventures as you follow along.

Experiences to Try at Home

It's important to find ways to keep the mindset we have while travelling even after we've left a destination. Here are some experiences you can try at home to keep that feeling with you.  

  • Read travel books

    Reading a book is one of the easiest ways to transport yourself to a different world, sometimes imaginary and sometimes real. Why not pair the joy of reading with the magic of travel with a book that brings both together? Read A Journey Through Every Country in the World by Lonely Planet. 
  • Cook something from another country

    Just because you can’t travel right now, doesn’t mean your tastebuds have to stay put too! You can discover a world of adventure in your kitchen. Bring a different cultures and traditions into your home by recreating dishes from your travels, or explore a country you’ve never been to in the pages of a cookbook.
  • Virtually visit museums and zoos

    Explore history, art and natural wonders from your living room. Museums such as MoMA and the San Diego Zoo offer virtual tours. If you didn't get round to visiting one of these spots on your trip or want a preview of what to expect when you visit, check out this link to see all the places offering virtual tours. 
  • Create a spa experience at home

    We all love getting pampered at the spa, but there are so many ways to recreate a spa-like experience in your own home. Spend some time tidying your bathroom, set the mood with candles and soothing music, and stock up on luxurious spa products to make your experience that much more relaxing.
  • Sign up for an Amazon Prime trial

    There’s nothing quite like a good travel movie to tide you over until your next adventure! When you sign up for a 30-day trial of Amazon Prime, you can get your fix of escapism by watching films like Under the Tuscan Sun, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Eat Pray Love, and more.
  • Learn a new language

    If you want to connect to another culture and learn something new in the process, why not sign up to a language-learning platform like Duolingo? Whether it’s Spanish, German, or Japanese, this app helps you level up your language skills in a way that’s both easy and fun. Best of all, it’s free!
  • Stream opera and Broadway shows

    Always wanted to go to the opera or see a Broadway show? You can snag the best seat in the house (your couch), and take advantage of all the performing arts shows at your fingertips by visiting Metopera.org or BroadwayHD. Take your pick from soul-stirring performances to world-famous musicals and more.
  • Try meditation

    Just like travelling, meditation is a great way to reduce stress and live in the present moment. Even if you can’t jet off to a retreat in Bali, you can reap the benefits of this transformational practice while you’re at home. Start your mindfulness journey with apps like Headspace, Calm, or Ten Percent Happier.
  • Send a postcard to a friend

    Although most of us are confined to our homes right now, there are so many fun, creative, and heartfelt ways to stay connected to your nearest and dearest. With the help of this app, you can create your own personalised postcards with photos from your travels, and then send them to friends and loves ones.
