With technology and imagination, anything is possible.

With all the fear and worry going around, a person is bound to want to get away from it all. Unfortunately, traveling right now is very difficult, if not impossible. There are, however, ways to get around it. With so many things going virtual nowadays, like taking a virtual museum tour or riding a roller coaster virtually, who is to say you can’t take a vacation virtually?

Taking the necessary steps to social distance, live webcams around the world are hard at work bringing places of relaxation straight to the comfort of your home.

It’s very possible to take a virtual vacation. Maybe set up a lounge chair by the pool and have a screen up with Barnes, Bay Anguilla in the background. Or if you’re a city dweller, you can “vacation” in Sydney, Australia with a beautiful view of the city at night. Or maybe you enjoy the great outdoors and have been longing to breathe in the fresh air of nature. You can certainly take a trip to Algonquin Park, Canada. You can even pretend you’re perched way up in the Austrian Alps, Sonnwendstein Mountain in Sonnwendstein, Austria, taking in the snow-covered pines along the slopes while enjoying your cup of hot coffee.

Travel has always been one of the best ways to connect globally, and it can still be done even though everyone is still somewhat confined to their couches. Armchair voyagers are the new thing, and it still facilitates learning and discovery as people find comfort and safety in a tropical paradise— all from home.
