VIRTUAL SANITY

Dear Wanderers,

As we take a global timeout and wait out the spread of the virus; we’re tapping into our greatest resources – imagination and play. And well, the internet! Here are a few things that are giving us comfort as we do our part to flatten the curve. Sending you and your loved ones heaps of health and ease.

VIRTUAL TOURS

MUSEUMS & PARKS

Skip the lines and view these masterpieces from the comfort of your couch with these virtual tours. Florence’s Uffizi Gallery has much more than the famed Birth of Venice. The collection at The British Museum is categorized temporally and geographically, history buffs – this is your game.

Can we say we’re feeling indoor / outdoor? The Hidden Worlds of the National Parks by Google Arts & Culture will take you into the depths of some of America’s great parks. With incredible videography and storytelling, you’ll feel a strong sense of place. In short, Google Arts & Culture will take you from Stonehenge to Surrealism in one click.

TRAVEL WITH FILM

SELECTIONS OF PLACE

At a time when Italy is hurting, watch The Talented Mr Ripley – a fantastic performance of forgery and lies. Amelie is everything you’d dream of Paris to be. Little Miss Sunshine for good old family fun. The Grand Budapest Hotel will transport you to Wes Anderson’s unknown worlds of quirk and kitsch. Wild will take you on a ride of radical self-acceptance through North American landscapes. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood for a true Tarantino time-travel, where the city itself plays a starring role. 

BOOK ME UP

ALTERNATE UNIVERSES

What better time than now to catch up on that big pile of books? Try this inspiring tale between China and Canada, Do Not Say We Have Nothing, by Madeleine Thien. For a different take on Italy, read My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante. Dive deep into the old town of Barcelona with Carlos Ruiz Zafon’s The Shadow of the Wind. And for a very apt plot, A Gentleman in Moscow tells a story of a Russian aristocrat trapped in a hotel. 

KITCHEN CHRONICLES

DISHES TO TRANSPORT YOU

Try something new with these internationally-inspired recipes. Go Italian with this delicious mushroom and thyme linguini by Nigella Lawson. Try Mexican with this easy, taco recipe by Jamie Oliver. Mix it up with Asian with this pro-tasting stir-fry by Chef Alli. For some all-American goodness, try these sour cream & onion biscuits.

As for "real" traveling, we're planning a few trips for later this year, with very flexible and accommodating cancellation policies. Get in touch if have any questions or would like to plan for later this year.
