ways to travel the world without leaving the sofa

Take a cooking class

Is there anything better than homemade Italian grandmother’s food? We do not believe that. While Italy is currently at curfew to slow the spread of COVID-19, that doesn’t mean you can’t improve on outstanding Italian food.

Nonna Nerina, an 84-year-old Italian grandmother in Palombara Sabina, Italy, has created a virtual cooking class for the Airbnb experience. Here he practically teaches you how to make Italian classics such as ravioli, beaters and fettuccine. Keep in mind that he only teaches on weekends. The days of the week are taught by his grandchildren. If you enter your email address, you may receive a 25% discount for a two-hour course for a limited time.

Get it at Disney

The magic isn’t over just because all the Disney parks in the world are closed until further notice. You can stream Disney virtual tours from parks around the world, from Florida to France, from the comfort of your own home. What about the Disney vacation offer?

Find parks and attractions

Take a trip to nature, so indoors. Thanks to Google Arts & Culture, you can search for national parks and famous tourist attractions throughout the country. Consider: the Statue of Liberty, Rushmore Peak, Grand Canyon, Yellowstone National Park and Alcatraz Island. Better yet, everything is available for free and you don’t have to queue.

Visit the botanical garden

A number of botanical gardens throughout the country also offer virtual tours for travelers. For example, the U.S. Botanical Garden Conservatory in Washington, DC is temporarily closed to the public until April 1, at least. Meanwhile, you can take a virtual tour of the park and immerse yourself in a beautiful landscape.

Take an art course

A number of universities hold free virtual art classes, according to Arty, and many have a global perspective. You can learn about Japanese history through pictures or discover ancient Egyptian art and antiques. They know what they are saying: if you can’t travel, you can spend several hours each week searching for photos of the place you want. Is that true

Listen to live music

Did the corona virus thwart your plans to go to major music events such as South by Southwest (SXSW), New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival or Coachella?

Fortunately, many bands and musicians play the couch because many of their concerts have been canceled due to new social distance restrictions. For example, Dead and Company will hold a free weekly concert on Facebook. The concert will include past shows that fans can watch for free, Live for Live Music reports.

And, according to NPR, travelers can experience live performances, virtual jazz shows, electronic festivals, classical concerts and more.

Watch a movie

Pamper yourself with a much-needed break from all the craziness out there and make yourself comfortable on the couch with one of these movies that feels good and weird this weekend. Some of our best photos are “Eat, Pray, Love” and “Mama Mia” – but there are many classic films and TV series to choose from.
