As international travel continues to be limited, there are still ways to celebrate our favorite destinations around the world and dream of the ones that we have yet to explore, which fill us with wonder and a hunger for life. To help you keep the spirit of discovery alive, we’ve created a new kind of "armchair travel" guide: a curated list of the recipes, playlists, films and books that evoke our favorite places, sourced from our members, our staff, hotel partners and fellow travelers around the world. This guide can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home—solo, with your loved ones, virtually—and we encourage you to make it your own. Until we can get out on the road again, we’ll be using these lists to journey around the world, from the Amalfi Coast to Marrakech, because how you travel matters—even when that means staying at home.How do you travel from home? Send us pictures snapped while using this guide—and your additions to it!—at email@example.com. Plus, book virtual travel experiences in your favorite destinations—from pizza-making in Rome to dance classes in Rio de Janeiro—through our Indagare Global Classroom here.
