One of the best things we can do for ourselves while we’re stuck in this crazy lock-down due to Coronavirus is thinking ahead – planning and dreaming. It’s important to keep hope and looking to the future. This seems like it will last forever but it won’t. Schools will reopen, libraries will welcome us with open arms once again. Restaurants will have dining rooms where can eat once again.
Most importantly, we’ll be able to spend time with loved ones in person again.
Until then, we can keep up that armchair traveling and dreaming of places far away. And one of the best ways to do that is through listening to some amazing podcasts. Here are the best travel ones around.
