How You Should Satisfy Your Wanderlust Soul During Pandemic?

They say that the time you spend traveling is more beautiful than the destination. Traveling for some is a pastime whilst for others a source to escape the reality. The pandemic hit the world with sheer amounts of unpredictability. The foremost thing to come to a halt was the travel and tourism industry.

Several countries had to face the wrath of the economies spiraling down. Needless to say, it brought about extreme uncertainty as well as discomfort to experienced travelers and novices alike. The scene ahead seems questionable. But as a wanderlust, one has to satisfy their traveling instincts somehow or the other.

Below are a few exciting ways to bring back the travel mode without giving up on social distancing.

Make it virtual!

Due to the stringent lockdown, several destinations such as museums and zoos have put up virtual tours for people to watch them. Thanks to Google, it has paired up with the world’s top excellent famous museums for virtual tours. People can choose a museum of their choice from the drop-down menu and visit it on screen. 

Another equally fun thing to do is browse on Google Earth! Climb hills and surf the seas. Wander in the distant cities and gardens. All virtually without convincing upon social distancing. 

Learn that language you always wished to:

Take it up as a challenge: learn the language of the destination that is on your bucket list! Traveling to exotic destinations is great but what makes it more fun is when you learn how to converse with their national language. Be it Spanish, French, German, or Croatian; today, many courses are available online, so it will be exciting to add a new feather to your cap! 

Make a travel journal:

What's more satisfying than revisiting your old traveling memories? 2020 is not destined for travel but that should not stop you from reminiscing the trips you undertook. Gather all the photographs and memorabilia from your previous trips. Next, compile them into a photo album, journal, or book. You can jot down certain particular memories and dates too. Journaling is an ideal way to keep yourself away from the wanderlust blues. 

Binge-watch travel movies and documentaries:

Engage yourself with a bucket list of travel movies to watch. Sources such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hotstar are a hub of movies from various genres and languages around the world. All you need is a gallon of ice cream or a pack of popcorn to escape into a whole new world. 

“Destination wedding”, “Wild”, “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”, “Home Alone” (all parts), etc. are good movies. Documentaries such as “Home”, “Austin to Boston”, “Expedition Happiness”, and “Encounters at the end of the world” provide the best travel information and details. 

Take that travel quiz:

Quizzes and games are another way to keep yourself engaged during the lockdown. So you believe you are an experienced traveler? Then search for quizzes and take the chance. Test your knowledge about the destinations you went to previously. 

If you have siblings and friends, then a good board game will cheer your spirits! There are various board games such as Monopoly, Ticket to Ride, Forbidden Island, Cluedo, Chinese Checkers, etc. 

Paint and solve the puzzle:

If you are someone who loves art, then painting will be a good pastime. You can paint the scene of the photographs you took from your previous trips. Platforms such as Pinterest and Instagram offer art prompts. Following them will be fun too!

Puzzles keep you occupied. They are easy to obtain from Amazon or other stationery stores. You can also transform your travel photos into a customized puzzle and create fresh memories! 

Plan your dream post-pandemic trip:

We need to agree that the world will come back to normalcy once again. Times may be tough and travel may be out of choice now. As for now, virtual tours will help satisfy your wanderlust, and also let you learn more. But traveling in the real sense is not far away. People will get back on their feet again, though it will take time.

Till then, why not curate a detailed plan of your dream destination? You can check out flights, decide on the places you want to see, the attire, cuisine, etc. It will save you time later as well as money.
