While travel may be off the cards, for now, virtual escapism is open to everyone with an internet connection.
In fact, now is the perfect opportunity to reminisce about your favourite holiday or get excited about your next adventure.

Remember those amazing tacos in Mexico? Or that awesome paella in Spain? Why not try to recreate your favourite food from destinations across the world. Be transported around the world as you enjoy the cuisine from the places you love the most.
3. Google Earth
Why not visit your favourite destinations on Google Earth? Relive that moment from that epic family holiday you took or the awesome backpacking adventure.
We’ve all searched our own houses on Google Earth (why is it we all do that?!), so instead search for that hidden beach spot you found in Greece.
Even better, why not get the kids involved and make it into a geography lesson!
