Armchair Travellers of the World Unite

First off, I hope you are faring well during this time in our collective history. Could you ever imagine something like this happening in our lifetime? I did not. It feels like fiction. Nevertheless, my family and I are adapting as well as possible to this new normal. Now that we have put a pause on life (as we know it), how would you like to see things resume once we hit play? For me, I live in the bustling city of Toronto, Canada and have enjoyed the slower pace immensely. We do not need to live a hectic fast-paced – for those of you who do, knock yourself out! As a collective, it would be wonderful to move forward in a way that no longer compromises our planet’s health and from that, the rest will fall into place. So, my fellow traveller, while we await the green light to leave our homes freely, I thought I would bring the world to you, sitting in your armchair.

Shall we leave a close to zero carbon footprint? Grab your favourite beverage and snack and let the journey begin.


All aboard the Armchair Travel Company. Yes, that’s right, there is a company called that. Interested in travelling to India to see the Taj Mahal? How about Westminster Abbey where Prince William and Duchess Kate married?

Our colleagues at Conde Nast Travel compiled the “Ultimate Guide to Armchair Travel.” Whether you have five minutes or endless hours, they have prepared a lengthy list to satisfy your travel itch.

I produced a number of videos called Weekend Jaunt, from Lake Placid to Israel. You can see them all here! Please subscribe to this channel!

There is also an Armchair YouTube channel as well. There are 18 videos in total.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the time with your family. Connect to loved ones often. Reach out to your neighbours to see if they are okay. Be good to each other. xo
