Some of you may have never really experienced or have become accustomed to staying at home for weeks or months without doing anything. Yet, here we are required to stay at home to protect ourselves from the virus.

One day you are out and about with your friends and family, searching for places you can visit and planning for your next vacation trip. Then the next day, everything changed.

Books talk about different ideas and new things that are beyond our reach, and these ideas can stimulates your imagination and allows you to travel across the world. Books lets you experience things through words and make your imagination fly.

3. Watch Movies.

Just like books, movies can also transport people to different places. Movies/films can communicate and entertain. It is also an effective way of delivering messages that can have great meanings. It allows you to have significant realizations about yourself and the world around you.

Movies can make you engage more about the world because it is like a window to different parts of the world that people can hardly see. With movies offering impressive insights and cinematography it can fill your wanderlust and feed your curious minds.

4. Learn a new language.

Learning a new language gives you a deeper connection and a better understanding to a new culture. An increase in cultural awareness will provide you an enriched interpersonal experience. You can also interact and build relationships with people around the world when you try to learn a new language.

Learning a new language does not only allow you to explore a new culture it will also make you appreciate and respect cultural values.

5. Cook meals from a different country.

Food is an important part of a culture. Traditional cuisines are past down from one generation to another. It serves as an expression of a cultural identity. Every country has its own unique cuisines that somehow reflects its values, history, lifestyle, and beliefs.

And with globalization, it is easier now for everyone to have access to cuisines from different countries that allows people to experience the culture of a country even if they are not there physically.
