Home swap travel plans postponed until later in the year? With much of the world again in lockdown, many of us will be looking for fun, proactive ways to fill the time and keep our spirits up. If you're tired of the TV and it's too cold and wet for gardening, you may want to head to the kitchen and try recreating some of your favourite dishes from around the world.
So, while non-essential travel and holidays are currently off the menu, try to relive some of those wonderful home exchange memories through food. Sure, it might not be quite as good as the real thing, but reliving memories of vineyards and olive groves, vibrant food markets, and mouth-watering meals comes a close second.
