Tips for Curing Wanderlust During COVID-19 Isolation

While you won’t be traveling in the next month or two, that doesn’t mean you should stop the travel inspiration from coming! When you begin to plan a trip and map out what you’re going to see it do, it keeps you positive. Having something to look forward to is a great way to fight off the blues. You might not be able to book that flight now, but you can lay the groundwork for where you want to go, where you want to stay, and all sorts of things. Take time to read reviews of restaurants and sites—plan your dream trip!

1. Plan ahead 

What kind of trips do you want to take in the future? There are so many different types of vacations. Think about what is going to curb that wanderlust you’re feeling right now. Is it going to be a tropical holiday on one of the islands of Hawaii? Or maybe you want to go on a safari in Africa Or maybe you want to get your scuba diving certificate and head to Spain! Maybe it’s something even smaller, like a destination that you just haven’t been to before. The options are endless. This is also a great time to buckle down and save money for your future travels since we’re not out social spending.

2. Go on an Online Museum Tour

Because many museums have closed down, many of them are offering virtual tours. In fact, Google has teamed up with over 2,500 museums and galleries to bring you online exhibits. From the British Museum in London to the Guggenheim Museum in New York to the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. You can also take to the internet and streaming platforms to watch history documentaries and informational shows like Planet Earth.

3. Do something with your travel photos 

Now is the time to get those printed and used for something creative. Whether it be a scrapbook of a trip, a travel journal, hanging them on your wall, or creating a cool display for your room—get creative! There’s something special about looking back on photos of past trips and walking down memory lane.
