Cure your cabin fever
The past few weeks have shown us that our world has changed and nothing is quite the same. Things have come to a stop and we're slowly adapting to a different way of life. By connecting online, people all over the world have shown that we can still come together and we can still explore the world around us. But we are now visiting from inside our computers, inside our homes.
All across the world, there are live streams that show us the beauty that's still out there, just waiting for us to return.
The choices are endless. You can walk through some of the iconic museums of the world, take a virtual tour of Uluru, visit the Taj Mahal, explore the Great Barrier Reef and view the Northern Lights from Canada, just to name a few.
Regardless of your age, there's something for everyone to enjoy!
There are thousands of museums and galleries open for online tours and each day there are more and more who are opening their online doors to the public with interesting content. Be sure to check in with your favourites - you just don't know what surprises are in store.
Travelling is temporarily on hold, but there's nothing to stop you from bringing the world to you!
Take some time to immerse yourself in the stories, the history and the culture of Uluru as told by an Anangu elder. Uluru Story Spheres are going to make a visit to the Red Centre a priority when we're allowed to travel again.
Explore.org have dozens of live cams that can keep you entertained for hours watching gorillas, eagles, owls, even a rescue kitten house. Check them out at different times of the day to see the animals during play and sleep. You don't just get to view the animals, you're given information on what you're seeing, the current time and temperature and useful website links.
Please note that most live streaming sites have had their streaming quality reduced to accommodate heavy worldwide internet use.
