Travel During Quarantine


2020 has your travel plans hacked?!

Well, don’t worry. I’ve got your back!

With the pandemic spreading like a forest wildfire, all of us are confined in our homes with nowhere to go.

The anxiety of living in locked doors all day long for about three months now is increasing the thirst to visit someplace outside.

Did you know that now you can visit?

No no! The lock-down hasn’t been called off, stay indoors!

I am talking about virtual trips.

Yes, it’s very much possible for you to travel virtually, thanks to the amazing technology.

First things first, reading gives you an opportunity to visualize the things in your mind. Thus, make use of your reading capabilities and go through some travel blogs and books. Writers have a wonderful hand in making places look beautiful and giving an essence of reality. To name a few travel books you have –

  • The Rings of Saturn: W.G Sebald
  • The Art of Travel: Alian de Botton
  • The Alchemist: Paulo Coelho

Similarly, watching movies that involve a lot of travel can be of some help. Images of the places and it’s monuments and other elements will definitely give you a feel. To name a few travel movies, you have –

  • Into The Wild
  • The Way
  • Ye Jawaani Hai Deewani
  • Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara

The National Geographic channel has come up with a series of 360-degree movies that give you a real-life experience of being in a particular place. Be it national parks or any other activity like scuba diving, you can have it all! 

Another way out could be joining travel communities. A travel community is a group of fellow travelers, all very passionate about what they do. You get to interact and share all your travel stories with these thousands of people looking for one thing – the same experience.

In view of all your readers, let’s discuss two places that should be on the top of your must-travel-to list.


Oh yes, this should and must be the number one priority of all travelers. Now, are you thinking of which one? If you don’t know what I am talking about, there are in total six Disneylands all across – California, Paris, Florida, Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. If you must visit the largest of all, then the one in Florida is your go-to mark.

Let’s come to India – Sikkim is like heaven on earth. The tea gardens, the atmosphere, the food, everything is perfect and enjoyable to the fullest. At each corner, you’ll find stalls of Maggi and special Chai at minimal rates. Known for its pilgrim destinations, Sikkim is truly beautiful and recommended for recharging your body and mind.

This was just a gist of how you could manage your FOMO on the travel aspect. A few pointers that I could list down to provide a kick-start, from here how you want to proceed on the journey of traveling and discovering at the same time is surely going to be a fun one!
