Being stuck at home when all you can think about is your next trip can feel like torture but it doesn’t have to. 

If you’re in between travel due to low paid time off, a break, or financial reasons, travel experts from Travel and Leisure have a few ways to cure that “I want to get away but can’t” blues.  

Take a language class

Taking a new language is a great way to play a trick on your mind.  Even though you’re not traveling physically, taking another language will allow you to immerse yourself in a new culture.

Try new cuisine   

One of the best things about traveling is that you get to try new dishes that you normally wouldn’t try. Why not do that in your own backyard?

Explore your own city

Speaking of own backyard, try being a tourist in your own city to get that same feeling of exploring new things when you’re away from home.

Plan things like treating yourself to a hotel stay,  visit attractions that are popular among visitors to your city or try a new restaurant in town.

Read a travel book

According to travel experts,  once you commit to a page-turner of book, it will allow you to travel to places without having to leave the house.

Play a day trip

If you’re a frequent traveler but can’t go too far, consider planning a day trip.

It’s important not to forget the joy of traveling short distances by car, train or a bus ride. 

Not sure what to look for in a day trip?  Remember not to go too far from your home and look for charming towns, a state park, or even an art festival.
