How to travel the world without actually going anywhere

How would you like to visit the pyramids at Giza? How would you like to see the Eiffel Tower, and have brunch of the French Riviera? A real Oktoberfest in Germany? Sure we all would like to travel the world, but many of us don’t have the money or the means to get there. A lot of us don’t know how to travel to a foreign country. Finally, some of us don’t want to be in an uncomfortable situation even though we may want to visit some of these exotic places.

Why not fake your vacation to other countries? You can read up about them on Wikipedia and regional websites. You can watch videos on Youtube of other people’s vacations. Want to sample real French cooking? Go to some expensive hotel that has a real French chef. Want to make your friends think you’ve traveled the world, you can do that with a cheap digital camera and some free software. You could even go to the library and check out some books on your country of choice.

Go online and find a free foreign language course, and then you can learn the language. Then when you start learning enough you could go online and look for websites which will connect you to native speakers of the language of your choice. It’s as simple as that. Why not ask your new online friends for products of their country and/or their town? So then you would have proof via souvenirs. Nothing could be easier.

How about actually going to a restaurant with foreign food. Right in your home town you could be chowing down on authentic Mexican, or go down to China town and have some real Chinese. (Except it’s not real Chinese but real American China town Chinese, and Mexican can be authentic but that’s only because our country is above theirs on the map.) Go online and get some souvenirs.

You don’t actually have to even leave your house to “travel” to foreign countries. I hope this gave you some good ideas. Happy traveling!
