Creating | A Home Away From Home Feel When You Travel

Travel and seeing the world are such fantastic experiences that are so exciting for people to do. It can even be hard to pinpoint exactly how you feel about it too and why going to a new place can bring a lot of happiness with it. Some new experiences are always a fun adventure, as well as seeing the sights that you have always wanted to tick off. One of the downsides to travel is that it can be costly, and even take you outside of your comfort zone (both a good and bad thing). So if you're able to make a 'home away from home' situation while you are away, then it can make a difference to how you travel. A few comforts that you're familiar with can be just what you need.

Here are a few of the ways that you can make your travel experience like a home away from home.

First, Coffee
Coffee can be just a home comfort that starts off your mornings. It might not be coffee for everyone, but the ideas is that you take a little something from home that comforts you. It could be one of your favourite things to drink, eat, watch or play. Just choose something on your travels, especially for any extended journeys, to help you feel comforted and like you're back at home.


Choose Accommodation Wisely
The place that you choose to stay will have an impact on how the whole experience goes. If you are in quite a sterile hotel environment, then it can be hard to feel comforted or like you're at home, if that makes sense. There are different options of hotel, much like extended stay hotels like Residence Inn by Marriott, that can be more like a home from home situation, as there will be a kitchen area in the suite. You have plenty of other options, though, with sites like Airbnb, and house swap sites. So you can choose whatever the best option is for you.


Learn The Lingo
To make your travels as smooth as possible, having a few of they key phrases under your belt can be just what you need. When you're able to ask for a few things, know the right words for directions or please and thank you, then you can be left feeling much more comfortable and at less risk of getting lost! Our smartphones do make things like this much easier. But learning some words can be helpful and shows that you're making an effort.


Being cooped up on your travels is never going to be a fun things. Which is where being able to walk around the place you are staying is a must. You can get a feel for the vibe when you're away, as well as seeing things as the locals do. And that latter point can be one of the most magical things about travel. So mix some home comforts with new experiences and you'll be good to go.

  2. Love this Rosanna and it's particularly helpful when I'm jetting off in a couple of weeks! I love air bnbs for the reason that I can make them a bit more homely, I always unpack everything properly and always start the day with coffee!
