I know people like me right now who aren’t going anywhere except the necessary places. They are getting groceries delivered or do pick-up. I also know people who have gone on vacation during this pandemic, but I really just don’t trust any of it right now. With as badly as some people are coping and staying home as much as possible, I can’t trust that most people are doing the right thing, and that means traveling just isn’t in the cards for us right now.
If you’re also feeling lost without being able to travel, then I’ve come up with several things you can do to have a little bit of travel in your life while still staying safe and at home. You’ve been seeing my Destination Date Night posts, then you already know one big way I’m coping right now, especially when everything is stressful right now. Here are 5 other ways:
Re-Write Your Travel Wish List
- Cairo, Egypt and surrounding areas like Edfu, Luxor, and Aswan.
- Mexico City and/or Oaxaca during the Day of the Dead festival.
- Athens, Greece to see the ruins.
- Tokyo and Osaka were already on my list, but now I’m even more into it.
- Morocco for all the gorgeous colors, landscapes, and markets.
- Austin, Texas has been on my backburner list, but I’d love to do a short break there to take in the food scene, street art, and history.
- Chicago for the excellent buildings, haunted history, and cool city sculptures.

Got a new road trip buddy today! 🚗🚗🚗 Anyone else taking any trips this summer? 🌞🌞🌞 . . . #jetsetter #jetset #ilovetravel #tourist #tourism #tblogger #tbloggers #travelblog #travel #travelblogger #travelgirl #travelgram #instatravel #traveler #traveller #budgettravel #budgettraveler #ftblogger #ftb #vacationmode #travelgoals #womenwhotravel #traveladvice #traveltips #wanderlust #vacayallday #whereintheworld #roadtripready #kiasoul
Pack a lunch and some cool tunes and take a drive around your city, out to a nearby National Park, a scenic overlook, or an outdoor landmark. If you look well enough, you can make a day of it and find places you’ve never heard of before or go see things you haven’t had time to see until now. You should check out some local restaurants or cafes that offer take-away, so you can eat safely and also support a small business with your dollars. I know many places here that offer curbside pick-up. Don’t forget to charge your phone for pictures and keep masks and hand in your car if you don’t already have both in there.
You can totally travel in small ways right now and keep the spirit alive. As much as I have moments where I miss travel harder than I ever have, I feel like what I do to fill the void is actually helping me quite a bit in the long run, because we are doing them every week or every other week instead of waiting for that one- or two-week vacation coming up. In fact, now we have other ways to fulfill our wanderlust between vacations when we get back to whatever normal is.
How are you keeping the travel bug from overwhelming you right now?
