4 Travel Related Things To Do At Home When You Can’t Travel
***Sponsored advertorial by Raising Holmes***
Whether you have limited holiday time, you’re running low on disposable income, or maybe even a global pandemic forcing us all to stay at home!! There are plenty of times when we find ourselves unable to get out and explore.
Here are 4 travel related things you can do at home until your next holiday…
Talk about the world with your children
Talking about the world is one of the most effective ways to raise awareness, increase respect for other cultures/environments and inspire your children at the same time.
If they are old enough ask your children where they would most like to go if they could go anywhere in the world. You may get mixed responses (when asked, our youngest said her favourite country was the airport!) but it is a great way to get them thinking about the wider world and they might just have some brilliant ideas for where you could go on holiday next.
Take this further and find out more about the country they would like to go to – things to find out:
How far away it is from where you live
Educate your children with fun travel activities
After several long weeks off school are you looking for more ways to keep your children occupied?
As you take the time to carefully plan our future holidays it is worth bearing in mind what you can do to become more responsible travellers.
Whilst our tips and advice centre mainly around sustainable travelling, they can also be used in your everyday lives at home too.
Many people put off making changes because they feel that they as individuals can’t make a difference but YOU REALLY CAN. No one expects you to be able to change your entire lifestyle in a day/week or even month. All you need to do is change one small habit.
If everyone made one little change to their habits it would have a massive global impact.
The easiest thing you can do is to simply reduce the amount of plastic you use and to recycle everything else to the best of your ability.
We all know that our oceans are becoming clogged with many, many, years’ worth of discarded plastics and it’s time for us all to play our part in making a difference.
Our top 3 ways to do that are:
Use refillable bottles. Don’t be tempted to buy bottled water when out and about, aim to carry a reusable bottle wherever you go – this will save you money too!
Eliminate plastic toiletry bottles. Switch to solid toiletries. Did you know, you can get solid soap, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant and even toothpaste in solid form!
Carry reusable cutlery. As takeaways across the country are starting to reopen be prepared! Say no to the plastic straw and any plastic cutlery. We fully recommend investing in a set of reusable straws and cutlery for your family.
If you already do ANY of these things then you are AMAZING!
If not then now is the time to start and we applaud you for thinking about it. Pick something you could change today and start protecting our planet.
