Travel-Inspired Decor for the Grounded Travel Bug

If you love to travel but are finding your travel options limited due to Covid-19, consider travel-inspired decor as a way to showcase your love of travel at home.

As Covid-19 rages on, many travel bugs are finding that their wanderlust is being stifled by an inability to visit the places they love most. In some cases, travel restrictions are cutting off some of their favorite places to visit. In other cases, the idea of leaving home and going through the airport during a pandemic is taking some of the luster off of their usual travel plans.

But the itch to get out there and explore the world doesn’t go away that easily. From Bora Bora to Paris to London or New York, there are places in the world that those with an eye on the world love to visit. Or, perhaps, it is some tiny little town in a place that nobody else has ever heard of.

Travel Inspired Decor for Home

There are some popular travel destinations that most of the world has at least heard of, even if they haven’t – yet – had a chance to visit. Some of these destinations are all about escaping the world and relaxing in a beautiful setting. Some are about exploring history. And some are about seeing a part of the world’s population in a new and wonderful setting.

Or perhaps it is the culinary experiences you are after. After all, there’s nothing quite like Greek food in Greece or a baguette purchased from a bakery in Paris. One of the things that I enjoy is experiencing the regional variations in foods that are familiar in multiple places. For example, the differences between Mexican & Peruvian ceviche are quite extraordinary.

Whatever your reasons, according to US News these are the top 30 places that people love to visit around the world.

There are also some parts unknown that only you and a handful of other people may even know exist. Places that have become a part of your journey and hold a piece of your heard.

However, for the most part, these places are off-limits to outsiders as cautionary practices are in place to reduce the spread of Covid-19. Plus, the more cautious among us realize that the added risk of travel may not be something worth taking on at this moment in history.

For that reason, many people are putting their travel plans on hold and are not visiting their favorite destinations or exploring new ones.

A Virtual Trip Around the World

Just looking at some of these beautiful places can inspire a sense of longing, and a desire to visit and explore these exotic or metropolitan locals at your own pace.

There’s something alive about the hills of San Francisco. And New York remains one of the most energetic places in the world. Plus, anyone who has not experienced the rainy season in Costa Rica does not now what they are missing!
