With the cold weather causing many of us to spend more time indoors this February, the team at GEC PR has come up with some suggestions to help keep us all entertained and energised during the upcoming weeks.

Whether it’s catching up on blockbuster films based in and around Philadelphia, virtually exploring the Maldives through 360° tours, making a fancy crab curry or simply slowing down and discovering nature from your window, there’s something for everyone.

Enjoy Binge-worthy Philadelphia Films
Discover the ‘City of Brotherly Love’ from the comfort of your sofa and tick some classic films off the list by watching one of the many films Philadelphia has played a supporting role in over the years. Choose from the Rocky series, including the infamous scene of Sylvester Stallone running up the 72 eastern steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, or the spin-off sequels Creed. Other choices include Director M. Night Shyamalan’s films Unbreakable, Split, Glass and The Sixth Sense all of which are based in and around the city as well as 12 Monkeys which features the historic Eastern State Penitentiary.

Virtually explore the Maldives through 360° Tours
With all of us looking forward to sunshine-filled holidays, why not spend the time planning that dream trip and exploring over 2000 virtual tours of the Maldives. Available through the platform Maldives Virtual Tour, the 360° photos and videos will transport you to the paradise islands and resorts, bringing some Maldives magic into your home and providing some holiday inspiration.

Connect with Wildlife
Interacting with nature is both enjoyable and beneficial for our mental health, which is more important than ever in the current climate. By slowing down and taking in our surroundings, nature can uplift us in the most surprising of places. So why not spend some time looking out the window and note down the birds outside or listen to nature shows such as the new Get Birding podcast presented by Mya-Rose Craig in partnership with SWAROVSKI OPTIK. The joy of wildlife can be found anywhere.

Get Creative in the Kitchen
Revamp those culinary skills and add some sizzle to the weekend with a home-made crab curry recipe from the chefs at Aitken Spence’s luxury resort Heritance Aarah in the Maldives. Comprising Coconut Roti, Coconut Sambol and curry made from fresh crab, this recipe is surprisingly easy to make and will certainly spice up the weekly menu.
