    Armchair Travel 

    Armchair Travel is one of the most wonderful ways to look into our fantastic, vast world and learn as much as our hearts desire. We can travel to some of our favourite places without leaving home.  Through videos, pod casts, books and music and numerous other ways, we can go to places we have never seen, or only ever dreamed of. This way of travelling is a delightful pastime and is good for the imagination and soul. This form of travel at it’s best, makes us want to go and see for ourselves. After all we are curious individuals and have a thirst for knowledge!

    Enjoy sensory and magical experiences as we travel back in time or across the globe, take a trip down memory lane and many more exhilarating moments that will make you smile and fulfill your heart.

    Ready? Let’s explore the history of transportation.  Can you remember what it was like getting from place to place in the days of old. Maybe you put on your cross-country ski’s or snowshoes to go to the nearest store, or took a horse drawn stage coach, travelled the canals by boat, or had the opportunities to travel luxuriously by trains, planes and automobiles. What ever your mode of transport, it is now safer and more affordable. Advances in technology now allow us to travel far and wide. As new inventions and discoveries continue, we may ask ourselves where is transportation in our future and what will it look like in 2050! 

    To prepare for our trip, please follow the steps for a relaxing journey. Step 1 – Pour yourself a cup of tea or your favourite tipple, Step 2- kick off your shoes, Step 3 – pull up a comfy chair, ready? let’s go!
