For the last few months, travelling has gone through a lot of changes. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people have been avoiding travel and are even trying to quarantine in their house as much as possible. The travel industry took a small break in the beginning, but with summer time in full swing many have begun travelling again. If you’re someone who doesn’t feel comfortable with travelling yet, there are plenty of ways to experience other places and cultures from the comfort of your own home.
Eat A Meal From Another Country
One of the best ways to experience another culture when you can’t travel is by cooking a meal from that culture. Many cultures have their own unique styles of food and can provide plenty of new and interesting dishes to try. Think of places you’ve traveled to in the past or check out signature dishes from places you’d like to visit. This is a great way to experience something new and that you can make again and again.
Take Virtual Tours
Due to technology and the Internet we can do things we couldn’t do 30 years ago from the comfort of our home. One of those things is taking a virtual tour of a place you want to visit. There plenty of places that offer virtual tours over the internet, such as being able to view national parks on Google Earth. This is a wonderful way to learn about the place you want to visit while getting to see great views on your computer or television.
Play a video game
If you have a video game console or a good computer you can always check out video games. There are plenty of video games that take place in the real world and feature real world locations that can be considered fairly accurate depictions. Check out games like Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, which takes place in Ancient Greece and has accurate depictions of buildings such as the Parthenon. You can also play fictional games, as many of them feature interesting and beautiful fictional locations that can transport you to another world.
