No Travelling Makes Dan a dull boy!

What do people do when they can’t travel?

I’ve been getting really itchy feet recently but can’t travel because of other commitments here in England. My passport stares accusingly out at me from its place in the kitchen draw every time I go to pick up my keys. I’ve even pushed it under the cooker guarantee so that I don’t see it, but I still know it is there.

In an attempt to alleviate the pressure I’ve been reading friend’s travel blogs or letting them post their articles about their travels here at GoodToSee, looking at Flickr feeds and planning future trips but it really doesn’t seem to be helping… in fact it’s probably making things worse.

I did come up with the idea of writting a travel guide for where I live so that I could travel vicariously through making possible the trips of others (see my piece about Shoreditch from earlier in the month). Has any one else tried that?

So what do you do when you can’t but you want to – I’d love to know!
