Just because you are stuck at home, doesn’t mean you can’t dream about travelling. Part of the joy of travel is reminiscing about past adventures and planning new exploits. So surround yourself with travel memorabilia as a reminder of holidays past or to inspire you to ‘get up and go’ on another journey. Here are ten travel-themed homeware suggestions to get you started.
