Travel. It’s one of the most difficult things to attempt during the coronavirus pandemic — right up there with getting your hands on a package of toilet paper.
But the fact that you’re stuck inside doesn’t mean you can’t see the world.
Here’s a look at some travel series, currently streaming on Netflix, that might help with your growing sense of cabin fever:
