There’s no better way to travel around the world nowadays than taking a virtual tour: it’s free and it’s safe! Touristic sites around the world are now closed to the public, but available virtually to everyone. I've been busy researching and chose the best virtual tours available today for you to enjoy and organised them by continents.

You can watch the virtual tours on your phone or laptop, but for the full experience, there's this magical gadget called a VR headset. Oculus Go Standalone is one of those things you might be tempted to believe is the invention of the century. And it just might be! I'm so happy to have this and go wherever and whenever I want, without any cables, visas or expensive plane tickets.

  • This just makes me want to travel again aah! I’ve been to both the cliffs of moher and the plitvice lakes last year and both were beautiful! I’m actually doing a video on both soon 🙂 The rest is now certainly on my “to go see after quarantaine” list
