“An artistic armchair travel platform.”
–New York Times
Pre-covid I traveled often for work and was barely home. Throughout the year I would squeeze in mini-trips after wrapping big projects and was able to explore new countries each year. Now, my only option to travel abroad is virtually.
My jet-setting adventures came to an abrupt end this Spring when international travel was indefinitely suspended due to COVID-19. I’m forever grateful that I was able to travel when I did, but the thought of being grounded until further notice saddened me. Unsure of the future, I denied myself the option to even think about future excursions outside of the country. That is until now.
I’ve finally given myself permission to start dreaming of a new future. Things will never be the same but we do have the opportunity to rebuild better. One thing that keeps me inspired is continuing to learn about other cultures around the world.
An oldie but goodie, I recently found Jungles In Paris. Spotlighting craft, culture, geography and wildlife, they aim to celebrate subjects—human and non-human alike—that are often at risk of extinction in a globalized, growth-driven 21st century.
While we continue to endure and wait out the pandemic, exploring unknown parts of the world from the comfort of home might be our only option for now. Expanding our global perspective from the sofa can still help us better protect the Earth and all its inhabitants.
Happy exploring! If any story stood out to you, share your thoughts below!
