Stuck at home but with itchy feet for travel? Here are few tips on how to cure your wanderlust.
Plan your next holiday
Although this idea might seem a bit goofy, what you can do to bring back the travel excitement is to plan the trips for the parts of the world you’d like to visit soon, or for that big, once-in-lifetime trip.
Part of the fun of travel is the planning itself — when you begin to research and dream about the places that you’re off to see. So, when the day arrives, everything will be ready.

Cook some local dish from your last holiday destination
Ceviche, Ramen, Crepe or Moussaka? Difficult choice.
First, note down the ingredients you need to get in your next trip to the supermarket. Then, spoil yourself with a home-made dish from your last holiday destination. Finally, pair the dish with a tour around the photos you took there (and most probably you didn’t open since).
