Your Staycation Can Be A Wonderful Time For Families To Discover New Cultures
Aug 08, 2020 Season 2 Episode 79
The ROAMies

 A STAYcation IS a wonderful opportunity for your kids or grandkids to learn about and appreciate other countries and cultures while having fun all at the same time. CREATIVE COOKING: instead of grabbing takeout or the same old same old- Try new cultural themes and new recipes.  Ask each family member where they would like to travel if they could go anywhere right now. Use those locations to inspire creative cooking and baking.   Can’t get to Singapore  this year? Find some recipes and experience a version of the culture from your own kitchen.

VIRTUAL EXPERIENCES:
IN the evenings- you can hunker down on your couch and enjoy VIRTUAL EXPERIENCES as a family. We’ll put links to these in our show notes
VIRTUAL MUESUMS!  Much more fun with family members. Connect your computer to your big screen and tour online virtual museums together. No one will be there to “Shush” you while you make comments about the interesting and historical things you find.  We liked an idea we saw on travelingtanya.com : create a virtual scavenger hunt.
See who can be the first to figure out how to say Happy Birthday in Italian, discover the primary language spoken in Switzerland, or reveal the population of Thailand.
And to keep the VIRTUAL theme going, you can also virtually TOUR National theme parks. We’ll put the link to that in the show notes. https://www.departures.com/travel/national-parks-virtual-tour
Take a virtual castle tour  https://www.tripstodiscover.com/virtual-castle-tours/
from the comfort of your couch and indulge in history without all the musty smells and drafts.
Take a tour of an airplane.
Not flying this year? Get the feel of it anyway with a virtual tour of an Airbus, including the cockpit.  https://www.airbus.com/aircraft/passenger-aircraft/cockpits.html
You can also take virtual tours of the places you’ve always wanted to go (and perhaps some of the places you planned on going this year pre-COVID) with Tours By Locals or  With virtual tours of Japan, The Great Wall of China, the Northern Lights, numerous World Heritage Sites, Maldives and more.
