Here are some ways how you and I together can travel the world right now, from the comfort of our own homes!! Read on
This is an unprecedented time for travelers. Borders have closed. Countries are locked down. Flights are canceled. Cruises have paused service. World landmarks are closed, from the Taj Mahal to the Colosseum to Machu Picchu.
But I still have some good news amidst all of this. Did you know that there are web cams around the world, across some popular and also not so popular sites, which you can have complete access to? And guess what? These are LIVE cams!
I am so excited as I open these below links, one country at a time, hit the full screen option, cuddle up in my bed with a warm cup of coffee and feel like I am literally at these beautiful destinations! I'm writing this post in an attempt to provide a happy distraction for travel lovers to partake in. We’re in this alone together!
Here is a list of live cams that will offer you a virtual travel experience during this time of shutdowns. It will enable you to see these places in real time from your couch.
*Note: Open each link separately, one-at-a-time. If opening several tabs, then all tabs will default to the last live cam opened
