Travel The World From The Comfort Of Your Sofa

Travel The World From The Comfort Of Your Sofa

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks to technology- a smart device and internet connectivity- being confined to our homes, because of social distancing restrictions and closure of would-be destinations, isn’t a hindrance to travelling the world as you might think. You will be surprised by the diversity and extension of exploration you can do, from the comfort of your sofa and safe environs including:

The Great Wall Of China

The longest man-made structure in the world stretches over 3, 000 miles across several provinces of northern China. The country’s past military line of defense is now a unique world heritage site and its most famous attraction. There are interactive online maps that allow you to take virtual tours of some of its most popular spots with a click of the mouse.

The Vatican City

The world’s smallest sovereign state is the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church. Popular sites include the Vatican Palace where the Pope resides; the Sistine Chapel which is home to the most famous ceiling in the world; and St Peter’s Basilica. There are virtual tours that offer 360 degree views which give you a different aspect of the trove of iconic art and architecture.

The Metropolitan Museum Of Art

You’re probably familiar with The Met Gala, the annual fundraiser where celebrities turn up in all manner of fashion for the benefit of this museum’s Costume Institute in New York City. Simply known as The Met, the museum presents over 5, 000 years of art from around the world hosted in three iconic sites: The Met Fifth Avenue, The Met Breuer and The Met Cloisters. Good news is that you can experience and enjoy the art online.

The San Diego Zoo

Operated with the concept of open-air, cageless exhibits that recreate natural animal habitats, this is the most visited zoo in the United States. It houses over 3, 500 animals of more than 650 species and subspecies. Though closed to public visits, the San Diego Zoo is sharing stories about its animals, plants and people on live cam. So when you need an escape, you know where to go.

Live-Stream Performances

Musical acts around the world are using their celebrity influence to encourage people to stay at home by performing for them on social media- for free! Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, crooner John Legend and even our very own boy band Sauti Sol have live-streamed free performances under the #TogetherAtHome. Be on the lookout for which of your favourite artists may be next from the World Health Organization and Global Citizen platforms.
