Do you remember what it was like to wander aimlessly through your city? Or when you traveled to other parts of the world and mingled with thousands of strangers on its streets?
All this already sounds a bit distant, when millions of people have been quarantined for several weeks without leaving our homes to try to stop the advance of the coronavirus.
A virtual tour at street level
In this unprecedented situation, we have rediscovered the true potential of the Internet: keeping us informed, connected with our family and loved ones and that it is an inexhaustible source of entertainment.
YouTube is a good example of this, and today we are going to recommend a series of videos that can come in handy in this situation. These are videos in which we have the feeling of walking through different parts of the world.
exist very varied destinations, and it is appreciated that they have been recorded (I imagine that with a GoPro or something similar) so that it gives the feeling that we are seeing everything in the first person. Below we can see several examples:
Fifth avenue, New York
Los Angeles United States
Kichijoji (Tokyo) at night
Nature walk in Virginia, USA
As we see, the quality of modern cameras makes this experience much more realistic, and I highly recommend immersing yourself in these videos with headphones on.
It may sound a bit ridiculous to be watching hour-long videos of someone walking through a city, but the reality is that all help is little to make these weeks a little more bearable when you miss doing things as simple as a good walk so much.
