Keeping The Wanderlust Alive And Stay Motivated To Travel

It's been almost a year now since the pandemic emerge and time does fly that much, and before we even realize, its already 2021!

As a frequent traveller, keeping the wanderlust alive and stay motivated during this hard time is quite a challenge. While we may not be able to physically travel, it certainly doesn’t mean we can’t keep dreaming about it.

There are plenty of things that can be done to ensure that you are able to keep that travel instinct alive while we are stuck at home for now.

#1. Indulge in armchair travel

Armchair travel is 'the new' travelling for now, and it is safe since we are doing it at the comfort of our home and not violating the travel ban restrictions.

Whether you want to learn something new with the likes of travel documentaries or guidebooks or simply admire new scenery in movies filmed in exotic locations, there are a wide range of options and genres to choose from to suit your style.

There are few options to do this, either join in a virtual travel event, or explore new destinations through books and films.

#2. Revisit old memories

If you are someone that take tons of photo and keep it digitally on your pc drive or maybe upload videos to video hosting site like YouTube, Vimeo and others, now is the best time to look back to your incredible journey that you've taken.

If you have already done that, why don't you try to change or get creative with it. Maybe creating a travel journal, scrapbook or use the photo to be share as a blogpost. In the other way, you can share some tips or maybe tell a great story about your journey.

#3. Cultural Cooking

Remember that scrumptious street food or the 'Tom Yum Goong' that you tried while backpacking to Thailand, or the delicious 'Soto Bathok' in Yogyakarta?
