you deserve a couch-cation

you deserve a couch-cation

Tired of sitting on your couch? Wishing you had something to break up the monotony of doing the same thing day after day? This is for you.

While we won’t be hopping on planes anytime soon, we’ve planned three couch-cations to some of the most popular international destinations — France, England and Italy. With something to watch, do and eat in each stop, this is the perfect way to spend an afternoon at home! All you need is a little imagination.

First Stop: France

Watch: Julie & Julia and/or The Hundred Foot Journey  (Find them on Netflix)

Do: Take a virtual visit to Disneyland Paris. Here you can learn to draw some of your favorite Disney characters from their tutorial videos, see videos of the park and learn the park’s secrets from one of Disney’s Imagineers, Laurent Cayuela.

No trip to France would be complete without a trip to the Lourve, you can see the highlights of the exhibits (including the Mona Lisa) here!

Eat: Pick up some croissants from your grocery store bakery section, lightly toast them and enjoy! Feeling adventurous, use this recipe to make some yourself!
