Traveling is the worst activity you can do today unless it is for essential needs. COVID-19 has turned the table upside-down around the globe. Worldometer’s report last updated: April 30, 2020, 04:41 GMT, the total number of cases globally is 3,220,847! With 228,239 deaths and 1,001,008 recovered cases.
WHO keeps on reminding us to wash hands frequently, practice social distancing, and, importantly, stay home. The goal is to restrain the spread of the coronavirus. Why? Because as of this writing, there’s no cure nor vaccine yet discovered for this SARS-COV-2 virus. It is 47 days today since the lockdown starts in our country. Because of this, I have managed to come up with how I can entertain myself and relieve myself from the dreadful side-effect of self-isolation.
Here are the 4 best ways to travel amid COVID-19!
#1. By Reading
You can travel by reading! Reading is a classical way of traveling. There is no need for money, no need for hectic planning and scheduling, no restrictions, and no need to pack luggage! Just start reading, and off you go. Reading will also help you develop your thoughts, imagination and gives you endless knowledge. And it is safe and healthy both for your physical and mental health.
Get your oldest Atlas book in the attic and start turning pages! Discover and add some places you want to visit in time after this pandemic. You can also read some travel blogs, articles, and contents online.
#2. By Visual Imagery
Another inexpensive and safe way to travel amid COVID-19 is by visual imagery. Check out your old pictures, discuss them with your family or friends. Probably you can even start working on scrapbooking or assembling your travel album, start printing them! If you don’t have a printer, you can start making digital albums ready for printing.
I usually list the places I crave to visit and use the internet to search for them. I look at some pictures and images that will help me understand and discover the place. You can also try to see some art too! I follow this artist named Alex Markovich, and he has amazingly delicate works of art.
#3. By Google Map
I’m grateful for our technology today! It can bring you anywhere you want, even at the most restricted and secured places. You can use Google Map Satellite mode and wander around. Let me give you some places to visit.

#4. By Social Media
Travel the world by social media! You can check out stunning places to visit in the future. Watch some documentaries on YouTube. Try watching The Invaders – She Wolf. A story about the survival of a she-wolf in the wild. You can also look around for nature accounts like Earthporm, which I follow on Instagram.
There you have it, Lounger! I hope I have aroused your imagination and curiosity about how you can travel today while fighting this pandemic crisis. Remember to take it easy, have fun and be creative. Limitations are self-imposed. Creative vision is an endless power.
