  1. Plan Your Playlist
Whether it be a drive-to destination or an international flight, having a well-curated playlist full of your favourite music will make the journey much more enjoyable! Get travel ready by putting together the ultimate playlist.

There’s nothing better than the feeling of excitement when you get in your car knowing you’re setting off on an amazing journey, and turning the volume up on your favourite song and letting the anticipation of the holiday take hold.

  1. Join the Culture Club
Immerse yourself in the culture of the destination you’d like to visit. Take an online tour of the Louvre in Paris. Watch the majestic Beluga whales, jellyfish, or African penguins in the Georgia Aquarium or visit the natural wonders of Machu Picchu online.

  1. Eat Your Itinerary
There are many reasons we all travel, culture, history, attractions, visiting family and more, but one thing we all have in common is eating! A countries cuisine is not only unique, but a fantastic way to delve into the daily lives of the locals and truly experience a desitnation. 

The best part - you can replicate this experience at home. Here are some of our favourite recipes to try:
Bandeja Paisa or ajiaco from Colombia
