Last summer when we all needed to stay put in our towns because of the pandemic, I wrote an article about virtually wandering the world featuring video tours of places to visit around our beautiful earth. I’m sharing them again, but this time I’ve added to the list! How amazing that we live in a time when we can enjoy walking tours or aerial videos of all the fascinating places on earth.
I found these virtual tours on You Tube, none of them are narrated so they’re not like travel shows that have the distraction of a host. These virtual tours are walking, cycling, boating, or aerial shots of places around the world, many set to relaxing music.
While we’re still so limited in our ability to travel the world, these may be just what you need to escape to other parts of the globe. Click on the links above the images and they will take you directly to the You Tube videos where you can view a relaxing virtual tour of that part of the world.
