The age of armchair travel - part 6

Keep your wanderlust fed and your travel dreams alive

Angus Fontaine, Travel Writer with Escape.com.au has put together some thoughts about making the most of any enforced time off the road.

Now is the time to plan. So here’s a list of armchair adventures that will keep your wanderlust fed and your travel dreams alive.


11. TUNE UP A TRAVEL PLAYLIST

Song choruses of 20 seconds are the perfect length for COVID-19 hand washing standards.

Acclimatise your ears to your target country by compiling a playlist of its best songs and artists. You’ll tune in to the frequency of the locals and pick up a few phrases that might come in handy at the local disco (or disinfecting station).

Throw in a few tracks from The Coronavirus Hand Washing Playlist, which includes Britney Spears’ Toxic, The Police’s Don’t Stand So Close To Me, REM’s It’s the End of the World As We Know It, and Mudhoney’s Touch Me I’m Sick– all songs with choruses lasting 20 seconds, the time needed to meet COVID-19 hand washing standards.

12. LOSE THE BAGGAGE, REPACK THE BAG

Empty, then repack, and only take the bare essentials.


If in doubt, leave it behind.
