6 travel web series to fuel your wanderlust

We might be taking our chances with these travel web series, considering the irony of the situation. But we do come in peace and just want you to see every nook and corner of the world on your laptop screen, for coronavirus has certainly stymied the travel bug in some of us.

Remember those times when you could just turn your car into ignition or catch a bus or pass the security check at the airport to get rid of the work-blues (for at-least some time)? What wouldn’t we give to form a “GOA 2020” WhatsApp group to only have the plan busted at the end moment.

We’re here with a curated list of 6 travel web series to help you whip up the best itinerary with the best places to see and the food to eat, all while you’re tugged in your bed, possibly looking like a burrito from Mexico with that blanket tugged all around you.
