So what’s a traveler to do when you can’t in good conscience travel the world?!Make use of technology! Virtual Travel and sightseeing is a way of seeing places we might not otherwise get a chance to see in our lifetime. This could even be a resource for homeschooling or in preparation for world-schooling or unschooling!You could start with Google Street-view – coverage extends across most of the world, with the exception of large swathes of Africa, India, and China.


Museums, Art Galleries, Parks, and Zoos are some of the landmarks that are available for virtual exploration!
