Q: I'm wondering how to travel at home?

If you're wondering how to travel the world at home, make a list of the ways travel makes you feel, and then do things at home that also make you feel these things.

Q: What are the best ways to spend my vacations at home?

Start by making a list of places and destinations you've always wanted to visit, and then choosing your desired trip location and transforming your living space to resemble it.

For instance, you might buy some travel photography from a national park, pick up some Moroccan-inspired housewares, or hang up some New York street scenes.

Then, choose food recipes and activities that further bring you to that place.
