Quite frankly, I’m bored. I’ve watched every Netflix docu-series, Zoom happy hours feel like work, and I don’t leave my apartment save for the occasional dog walk and Target run. I also officially take back the expletives that came out of my mouth with every flight delay. This apology comes from the gut: I am so sorry.
Alas, my empty weekend now has hope thanks to Amazon Explore — an accessible, affordable way to uplift communities *and* travel. Virtually. Without having to renew a passport or book a flight.
Amazon Explore lets you trot around the known globe alongside seasoned hosts, spanning experiences that range from cooking courses and wine tastings to history lessons given out of Berlin, Prague, Kyoto, and more.
Here are just a few morsels of travel goodness that Amazon Explore currently offers:
Mysteries, Monsters, and Magic is a spooky tour of Edinburgh’s creepiest street corners and haunted tales, perfect for folks who want to celebrate Halloween in spring (*raises hand*).
Put down that $7 vino and give something else a chance via Peruvian Pisco: namely, a boozy drink that’s also bougie (there are egg whites and ginger beer involved). This cocktail class is perfect for the aspiring mixologist.
Schedule a virtual tour of Toucan Rescue Ranch and come face-to-screen with sloths, toucans, spider monkeys (Twilight), and more — all while knowing your tour is helping fund the preservation of Costa Rica’s vibrant wildlife.
Anywho, I know what I’ll be doing this weekend — scheduling an Amazon Explore session to make me feel like my trip to Tokyo wasn’t actually cancelled earlier this year. IT FEELS SO GOOD TO BE BUSY.
