4 Ways To Travel The World Without Leaving Your House

So, you love the idea of traveling more than the act of traveling. You love the idea of learning about new cultures, but you’re hesitant about stepping out of your comfort zone. If this sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place!

  1. Learn a new language!
    1. Something I’ve learned from Damon and Jo is you can learn a lot about a culture by learning a language spoken in that culture.
  2. Try a different culture’s cuisine!
    1. Order In! Try that hole-in-the-wall restaurant your cousin keeps telling you about or the place that would always catch your eye when you used to drive past it on your way home from work.
    2. If you’ve been refraining from ordering takeout due to the pandemic because you’re a bit wary of other people preparing your food, you can also try making a different culture’s cuisine at home!
      1. Disclaimer: Just remember that your rendition shouldn’t weigh too heavily on your first impression of that particular dish.
  3. Watch a foreign film!
    1. Seeing a different place through the eyes of the people who actually live there is much different than watching most travel vlogs.
      1. You can live vicariously through travel vlogs, but if you want a more immersive and educational experience from a different perspective than your own, you should watch a foreign film.
  4. Keep your eyes peeled for local virtual events!
    1. Most universities (& cities) host cultural events, partially to maintain a sense of community amongst the group being represented, but a byproduct of these events is they help educate other people.

Whatever you choose to do, remember to have fun while, of course, being respectful of other cultures.

Until next time,
