4. Read a travel book
To get away, to get inspired or just to relax, many books encourage travel. To feel free now, read Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque by Edgar Poe or The Empty Diagonal by Mathieu Mouillet or The Consolations of the Forest by Sylvain Tesson. Enjoy your reading!

6. Surf on the web
Read websites and forums about travel and motorhomes. Explore every corner of the Internet! Walk into the streets of Google Street View, you will be in one click at the feet of the buildings of New York or on the mountains of the largest national park in the world in Greenland.
7. Visit museums virtually
Traveling by staying at home is getting easier! Today, many museums have collections online, so do not deprive yourself! This is the case, for example, of MoMa (United States), Prado Museum (Spain) and Louvre Museum (France).
8. Discover a new culture
Take the opportunity to learn about a new gastronomy, another language or discover other traditions. Cook an exotic dish such as Mexican quesadillas, Spanish Tortilla or Italian lasagna. Choose a recipe that will make you travel where you want!
9. Make like when you are on holidays
A good cocktail and your feet in the sand? Well ok… without the sand maybe! But is the cocktail could be possible? Eat breakfast in bed, hang out, disconnect from everyday life and break the routine… Your mind will be more free to travel!
10. Traveling by staying at home is also doing nothing!
Just enjoy the passing time and watch the sunrise or sunset from your window. Live a real moment of relaxation and escape… By staying at home, you can also take the opportunity to take care of yourself and your loved ones.
