COVID-19 has delayed travel plans, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy wandering. Expanding your virtual destinations & experiences with the help of the internet.
1. Get lost in music:
Music heals, and artists around the world offer their gifted talent in these uncertain times. YouTube is a free tool for finding free music from all over the world, including Caribbean Calypso, Spanish Flamenco, and Uruguayan Candombe.
- Thrill yourself with wildlife:
Ethical experiences with animals are critical factors for journeys. The China Conservation & Research Center offers you look at giant pandas or take a virtual safari at Tembe Elephant Park in South Africa. Catch nature shows from the countries you plan to visit in the future, if you do not want to seek your luck, and wait to see if wild fauna falls through the lenses.
- Develop your linguistic skill:
Getting bilingual will help to increase mental awareness and comprehension of cultures. You may want to focus on the language spoken in other countries like Spanish, French, or Portuguese. Or, pick a country’s language you would like to visit.
- Enjoy virtual museum tours:
Keep your feeling of wandering alive by taking the world to you through virtual museum tours sitting in your home. You can be transported to over 1,200 museums in 80 countries by Google Arts & Cultures. If you are an art lover, travel online to some of the world’s best art museums.
- Travel through your palate:
Most cooking lessons from chefs’ homes around the world and through food tours are available digitally. Il Salviatino’s Chef, Silvia Grossi, provides Instagram cooking lessons from her home kitchen with simple recipes using ingredients that you already have at home.

AUBERGINE PARMIGIANA TOMATO SAUCE 250gr tomato sauce 1 clove of garlic Fresh basil Extra virgin olive oil 1 dry / fresh chili pepper (optional) In a hot saucepan, put a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, the crushed garlic clove and the chilli pepper. Lightly brown and add the tomato puree, salt and pepper. Cook for 15/20 minutes on very low heat. Meanwhile, heat the seed oil in another low and wide pan, I recommend you put it on low heat. AUBERGINES 3 medium aubergines 150 gr of grated Parmigiano Reggiano 200 gr Mozzarella cut into thin strips and left to drain 1 lt Sunflower Seed Oil 300 gr of white flour to flour the aubergines Sugar, salt 1 nut of butter Breadcrumbs Butter the oven pan in the breadcrumbs and leave in the fridge until we are ready to plate. Peel the aubergines from top to bottom in zebra stripes, spread them on a cloth, sprinkle them with salt and sugar (same quantity) and cover them with another cloth, trying to compress them with a weight for about ten minutes. Peeling them in zebra stripes and marinating them with salt and sugar are 2 tips that help us to obtain a juicy parmigiana but that does not release water once on the plate and ensure that when cooking the aubergines do not release the bitter that is typical of this vegetable if not completely skinless and if not left to “purge”. Flour the aubergines by removing the excess flour. Start frying them, taking care to turn them from time to time until they have a golden colour, drain them from the oil and dry them on paper towels or fried paper. Once the ingredients are ready, start making layers in the previously buttered oven pan and passed into the breadcrumbs. Start with a few tablespoons of tomato sauce. Continue with the aubergines, covering the whole bottom, tomato sauce, a pinch of salt, grated fresh Parmesan basil and finally the mozzarella. Continue like this until the last layer, I recommend you leave the last layer without basil because it would burn when cooked. Bake at 140 degrees for 45 minutes. #cookingathome #cookingwithlove #cookingclass #videorecipe #italianfood #italianrecipe #loveitaly #embarkathome #athomewithslh #travellermade

- Relax with a travel film:
The films are the best distraction; it is no secret. Choose titles from countries you want to visit or re-visit old classics to the destination of the dreams.
- Indulge in a book on travel:
This is a wonderful time to delve into travel books, beginning with true adventure non-fiction travel novels and travel guides about the destination you want to visit. Nobody would criticize you if you chose to re-read Eat, Pray, Love, and get swept away by intoxicating places, food, and passion in these uncertain times.
- Make a virtual bucket list:
You can use virtual reality to reach places you have always dreamt about. You can hit the top of Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps and ride across the Florence Duomo with the virtual reality package of Google Earth. Don’t stop on your virtual journey as you may turn it into real trip with triptile travel.
