Virtual Touring

Sometimes I want to be somewhere I’m not. Today, it was Yosemite. Fortunately, there’s a high-tech solution: virtual touring.

Here are a few of my favorite resources.

There are many more resources you can use for virtual traveling.

Do you use the Internet to “travel”? What are your favorite resources?

Update (2/15/2010). Here are a couple more resources I should have mentioned:

  1. Twitter — Chances are, there’s someone on Twitter tweeting about the location you’re interested in. Tweeting about the location likely will result in your being followed by that someone. For example, I tweeted about Yosemite and was soon followed by @THEYosemiteBlog. Doing a people search for Yosemite resulted in a lot more hits.
  2. Blogs — Finding blogs about a certain topic is easy. Google’s Blog Search or Technorati are great resources to find blogs.

Update 3 (3/18/2010). Betty shows the disadvantages of virtual touring.

    1. You’re welcome! Sometimes, when the weather gets a little depressing a little too long (nah, that never happens…), I like to search for webcams in tropical locales.

      I was surprised how many travel videos there are on YouTube.

      Google Earth is fun because you can save your favorites so you can easily return later. I like to record places we’ve been on family vacations.

      Happy travels! :-)
