Exploring Until the World Reopens

Aired on April 23, 2020

How can we explore the world while in lockdown? Although we can’t travel at the moment, it’s important to remember that we will be able to again soon. For now, staying home and enjoying some travel alternatives is the best way to satisfy our wanderlust.

While we’re at home, we can travel virtually. Enjoy a safari, visit dream destinations, and explore new cultures—all online. Virtual travel experiences can be incredibly enriching and a great way to keep our sense of adventure alive.

We can also use this time to research and plan our future travels. When the world reopens, we’ll be ready to explore it with newfound appreciation. Remember to respect and preserve the planet as we find it, ensuring we maintain the environmental gains we’ve seen during the pandemic, such as clearer skies, cleaner waters, and the return of wildlife.

The pandemic has shown us the silver lining of a mandatory pause—nature’s resilience and beauty. As we prepare to travel post-pandemic, let’s commit to preserving our treasured home for future generations.
