Though most of us would rather not be confined to our homes, unable to travel and explore the world, technology has made it easier—now more than ever—to enjoy cultural experiences and fun activities from different countries without even getting up from the couch. Sure, nothing is the same as trekking through the unknown with a backpack and a traveling buddy, but rather than sit and wallow about the fact that you can’t go anywhere physically right now, take advantage of the places you can go virtually. Airbnb’s online experiences are a great way to explore the world while sitting at home. Typically, Airbnb offers in-person experiences ranging from mountain climbing to cooking classes, but because most of the world is required to stay at home, they’ve adjusted their offerings and brought them online.

This is the perfect time to brush up on drawing skills you never have time for or ease your mind by immersing yourself in a tarot reading session. There are so many things to do, learn and experience—and you can do it all without leaving your house. The Earth is full of people who want to teach and help you gain a better understanding of different cultures, skills and even your innermost self. While we can’t physically explore the world right now, we can still engage with those around us and create a closer and more mindful society. So go ahead and take a virtual trip or two—or even turn it into a virtual date night. You never know what you might discover by yourself or with a loved one.
