How to Cure Wanderlust Without Leaving Your Home

Cabin fever got you down?We compiled some Staycation elevation tips. All you need is your imagination and a stable Wi-Fi connection.

  1. Watch a travel vlog, documentary, or movie - it’s good for the soul. You can also watch live streams and virtual tours from all over the world. Find a Live Cam of pretty much everywhere and everything. Want to see monkeys from the San Diego or London zoo, the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul… How about surfers in Hawaii? 
  2. Shop other countries’ small designers virtually. There are so many brands that never make it to the American mainstream. A few Google searches will have you on your way to finding bikinis from Australia, shoes from Italy, jewelry from Bali, or coats from Russia.
  3. Get cultural. Travel on a plate by cooking international dishes.
  4. Learn another language. Learning a language is easier when you practice out loud. So, grab a friend and download an App, like DuoLingo. ¡Buena suerte! 
  5. Speaking of Spanish... Taste the rolling valleys of Spain with our 4 Hotel Collection Wines.
  6. Make a pen-pal from another country.
  7. Be a tourist in your own city! Use Yelp and Google Reviews to do something semi-cliché in your hometown. Visit an old church, an art museum, a historical location, or go boutique shopping!
  8. Plan a trip. Even a weekend get-a-away can leave you feeling refreshed from a long work week.
  9. Can't get away just yet? Use a Hotel Collection fragrance to escape to the destination hotel of your choice.
  10. After all this inspiration, write a bucket list of every place you want to go.
