Updated: Dec 5, 2022

With the current travel bans on international travel, we’ll have to find things to do from home. We’ll all have to put our travel plans on hold for a while… but that doesn’t mean that we can’t dream and think about traveling. Traveling is so much more than the actual trip itself. Whether we are searching the internet for inspiration on future trips, putting together a photo album of our past trips, or cooking our favorite dishes from abroad. Traveling is with us everywhere we go, even at home. And it’s those travel-inspired things that fuel our wanderlust and let us feel like we are someplace else for a moment. To help you reignite that travel spark, we have put together a list of 17 travel-inspired things to do at home. We hope that these will help you feel inspired to travel more in the months and years to come.

1. Create a travel bucket list!


Now is the perfect time to think about all the things you still want to see, try, and experience in your life. From visiting the 7 World Wonders to swimming with great white sharks and sailing around the world. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!


Find inspiration on travel blogs or by watching travel videos online! Then, write down all the activities and places that you like in your travel notebook.


Once we are allowed to travel again, it is time to start ticking them off. Don’t just dream of going to these places, but get out there and do it!

3. Create a photo book or scrapbook with all your travel pictures


If you feel like you have a lot of leisure time at home, it is the perfect time to go through all your travel pictures. Pick your favorite ones and collect them in a photo book or scrapbook. It is a great way to reminisce about your travels and relive your favorite times abroad. Besides, this collection of memories is a great visualization of your travel stories to share with your friends, family, and maybe even (in the future) your children and grandchildren!
