We all know there’s not much travel going on right now. So, how can us travel bloggers come up with travel blog post ideas when we’re not going places? Just because travel has stopped, doesn’t mean your travel blog has to suffer.
People are always looking plan trips, have something to look forward to, even if it’s not going to happen in the immediate future. And they need inspiration from us, whether it’s from previous trips we’ve taken, virtual tours or epic bucket list places to visit.

Travel blog post ideas for when you can’t actually travel
You may not actually be there in person, but a virtual tour can fill you with inspiration for your next trip. Luckily for us, some travellers have put together videos of their trips and turned them into virtual tours.
More and more companies are also offering virtual tours of their museums, towns, diving trips and theme parks. In fact, I’ve found this Harry Potter Virtual Tour that’s coming up soon, I can’t wait to check it out!
So, watch some virtual tours and make a list of your favourites for a post on your travel blog. Need some inspiration? Check out these virtual tours you can take from the comfort of your own home.

How To Plan A Trip To [Blah]
As things start to look up, we can start planning our post-covid trip. Do a poll online and find out where your readers want to go when they’re free to travel. Then write a post about that destination and how to plan a trip there.
Packing guides are especially helpful for those of us (guilty!) who tend to overpack for a trip. Help your readers out by putting together a list of items they need to bring when visiting a specific place, recommend items you already have and love and you may even make an affiliate sale.
By writing about this now, your readers can start planning an upcoming trip in advance, rather than having to purchase items at the last minute before their trip.
