Feeling cabin fever going into another month of sheltering in place? Now you can travel the world from your home and learn a trick or two along the way. Airbnb's new online experiences — the digital version of their hosted experiences around the world — let you interact with cooking instructors, artists, astrologists, even Olympians, for a lesson in what they know best. Here are a few we can't wait to explore for a much-needed remote escape.
