People Recreate Travel Photos While Trapped In Quarantine

Part of traveling is that you get to document your adventures away from home with the help of a camera and maybe even share your experiences with friends and family via social media.

However, since quarantine and social distancing measures have begun, there hasn’t been much photo potential, so these people recreated their travel pictures while staying at home.

A Koala-ty Remake

It’s hard to remake a photo with an animal that lives on a different continent—I mean, most of us don’t just have koalas hanging around—so I guess the housecat will do.

Christ The Robe-Deemer

Christ The Redeemer is one of the most famous landmarks in the world, towering over Rio de Janeiro. While at home, however, a person in a bathrobe is a pretty good replica.

Don’t Make A Mountain Out Of A Mulch Hill

Mountains are a gorgeous geographical feature to see in person, but you really have to go to them if you want to see them. Otherwise, you’re stuck with a pile of mulch.

I Guess It’s Close Enough

It might not be a white sand beach with a live animal, but it’s a white desk with a wooden elephant. It’s not quite identical, but close enough for me!

The Star Of Quarantine Everyone

The Simpsons took years to get to their current level of fame, like most stars in the entertainment industry, but it only took a few months for COVID-19 to own all the news networks.

Vacuums Are Just Cleaning Snakes

Just like how snakes swallow their prey, a vacuum swallows all the dirt and dust that comes in its path, and it doesn’t even bite! I say we replace all snakes with vacuums.

A Little Toasty For All That Gear, Don’t You Think?

If, like this woman, your ideal vacation involves a little more action and adventure, you’re missing being able to hit the mountains to shred some powder too; however, don’t risk heatstroke to relive the moment in your ski coat.

Explore The Home Instead

You might not be able to travel abroad and see foreign architecture at the moment, but you can always open up the linen closet, reorganize it, and then marvel at your work.

Almost The Same As The Real Deal

Cons of having to use a stuffed monkey: it’s not nearly as adorable as the real deal and it does not move on its own. Pros of the stuffed monkey: it will not pull your hair.

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

One of the greatest things about traveling is how different the landscape and views are abroad compared to your home. Unfortunately, the view from your apartment will never compare to your Airbnb in Santorini.

Can You Spot The Difference?

It’s not every day that you see an enormous crater—I mean, they aren’t exactly a dime a dozen—but you know what’s easy to find just about anywhere? A toilet. The results are shockingly similar.

Showers Are Just Domesticated Waterfalls

Waterfalls are some of the most beautiful naturally occurring geographic features that people flock to see in different locations worldwide. When you’re stuck inside, you have to think of different ways to go chasing waterfalls.

Can’t Control The Local Climate

While there are many reasons to want to plan a trip, one of them is to chase after some nicer weather. While it’s not hard to replicate a pose overlooking the city, you can’t replicate a climate.

Cuddles Are International

While cuddling up in the Andes in Peru might be more aesthetically pleasing, at least you can still get the same good vibes by cuddling with your significant other at home.

Not Quite The Same…

Picture this: you wake up without having to set an alarm, roll out of bed, and take a shower before stepping out to stare at the ocean on a private dock. It’s just not the same in the backyard.

Isn’t Nature Just Beautiful?

Chimpanzees are some of the most majestic animals on the planet, but naturally, you have to travel in order to see them in their natural habitat. Humans, however, make an excellent substitute.

The Scenery Is Just Not The Same

Part of the reason some people like to travel is that they can visit architecture from past civilizations. A doorway photo just doesn’t seem the same without the ancient ruins.

No Ocean? No Problem

I truly admire people who are good at surfing because it takes a lot of balance, strength, and practice to master the art. Unfortunately, you need an ocean to do it, and most people don’t have one lying around the house.

It’s Like Day And Night

The view from the window bay of a skyscraper in the city is unique and gorgeous, and a backyard could never compare to it, even if the natural view is nice.

It’s Just Not The Same Without The Boat

Oh, to be lounging amongst handcrafted throw pillows while on a boat in Morocco overlooking the ocean. Even if you have a similar aesthetic at home, it just is not the same.
