While most of us are itching to get back to a somewhat normal life, some travelers are eager to get back to exploring the world. Many had to cancel trips they had been looking forward to for months, and throughout these times travelers look for anything to fill that travel void.


With no travel in the near future, Azamara hopes to bring the excitement of cruising to the comfort of your home by introducing Azamara Home Journey, a series of interactive activities and entertainment that demonstrate the brand’s motto. These activities are aimed to connect people with people, people with cultures and people with themselves. It brings exploration to life with virtual tutorials, tips, activities and more.


Being stuck in the house all day with little socialization isn’t good for one’s wellbeing, something we can’t forget during this difficult time. As part of the Azamara Home Journey, Azamara hopes to provide tips to help reduce anxiety and increase happiness through the Sanctum Series. The Sanctum Series introduces multiple wellness methods, techniques and exercises from around the world that can be performed at home to help ease one’s mind. Inspired by custom-made onboard itineraries, guests can engage with Azamara’s Guru Guide, which will provide daily activities including exercise regimens, meditation sessions, healthy meal prep suggestions and self-care practices.


Azamara takes pride in having the friendliest crew and strives to make meaningful connections with guests onboard. Azamara hopes to continue those practices virtually by introducing the Home Exploration Series. In the Home Exploration Series, Azamara will provide specialty crafts and nuances from around the world, influenced by the crew. If you want to feel like you are really onboard, check out the recipe tutorials from executive chefs and performances from the cruise directors. Additionally, Azamara Home Exploration will offer Azamara Stories and Spirits Club, which will focus on a book or movie inspired by a specific destination; you can even learn how to make the perfect mojito while daydreaming about Caribbean destinations.

What to Explore at the Please Touch Museum in 2021

Most museums tend to be boring for children — they have to be quiet, they may not be interested in the exhibits and they can’t touch anything. At the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia, kids are encouraged to run around, play and have fun while learning. The beloved museum will safely reopen in 2021 for kids and families to run, play and touch exhibits as they used to, and now is a great time to plan a visit next year.


This summer, family travel at The Peninsula receives an upgrade with the debut of Camp Peninsula, a children’s experience that recreates the spirit of camping right in the heart of Beverly Hills. The journey begins with a special welcome from Peter Bear, the hotel’s lovable mascot, at check-in. After taking a picture with the life-sized teddy bear, kids will be whisked away by a Peninsula Camp Counselor to a luxurious guestroom where a charming teepee awaits. An afternoon of camp-themed games and activities, including a hotel-wide scavenger hunt, rounds off the family-friendly experience, fun for children of all ages. Whether it’s a luxe staycation or an extended holiday, Camp Peninsula is an ideal way to ensure the little ones are happy campers.

Osaka Oishi: Navigating the City’s Food Landscape

You could say Osaka is a shapeshifter among cities. Japan’s third-largest city, running at a somewhat slower pace than Tokyo, is a patchwork of big business districts, pretty residential areas and beautiful parks. By night, several of its neighborhoods take on an alluring theme park ambiance. The most obvious is Dōtonbori, an upscale retail oasis that, after sunset, becomes a neon-lit maze of restaurants, bars, comedy clubs, arcades, department stores and massive souvenir emporiums.
