We’re almost halfway through the summer vacation and many of us are unable to explore the world like we used to before the lockdown 🔒
Staying at home this summer? Here are a few ways you can see the world, learn something new, and have fun - all while staying safe on your couch 🏡
See amazing art! 🎨
When visiting major cities, it’s always a good idea to see what local museums have to offer. Many institutions have their entire collections available online, so you still can see the world’s greatest pieces of art while at home! You can check out exhibitions from Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the vast riches of Museum Island in Berlin, or even the Louvre - for free!
Explore the unknown! 🕵️♂️
Some people prefer the alpha cities of the world, and some thrive in the unknown, exploring deeper parts of the countries they visit. Wanna get a little lost out there somewhere? With online geography quizzes like GeoGuessr or Seterra, you are thrown into a random place using Google Street View, and your objective is to look around for clues and figure out where in the world you are!
Learn more about countries! 🌍
When traveling, we have a unique opportunity to learn so much about other cultures and people; and while it’s unlikely a person can visit all of the countries in the world to learn all of that firsthand in their lifetime, you can visit the Geography Now channel on YouTube, where a few geo-geeks have undertaken a tremendous task of explaining what every country in the world is all about - in alphabetical order. The project is still ongoing, and while jam-packed with knowledge, it’s just plain fun to binge-watch.
Create a new world with your friends! 👥
Everyday life got you down? Dreaming of an unreal getaway? We can always count on video games for that. You can fly away to a deserted island and create your dream world in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, or move away to a charming farm town and live a more peaceful life in Stardew Valley. These games have been a big part of lockdown life for many, and both of them support online multiplayer, so you can spend time with your friends and create your own fantasy life together!
