Our New Virtual World of Wonder
I’m sure, like me, you are inundated with emails and messages with articles about all the things you can do virtually. So many creative people, companies, and organizations have stepped up and created so much content you could literally sit in front of your screen 24/7. It’s overwhelming.
I’ve been trying to do a few online classes, tours, and workshops and it can be daunting. Here are a couple of exceptional virtual experiences, including a podcast, webcam, train ride, and sounds of nature, for you to dip-in your toe and give it a try. I hope you enjoy them, Karen
This LiveCam website is fantastic for all ages, from this link you can explore an entire world of different wildlife webcams. Let’s start with the Gorilla Forest Corridor in Kasugho, Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. On the page, scroll to POP LIVECAM; it will also show highlight footage. There are many options to explore on this incredible website by explore.org.
Celebrate America’s Story with the Tenement Museum Podcast
For one of my favorite podcasts, listen to stories of real families who settled into New York tenements from all over the world, courtesy of the fabulous Tenement Museum. Equally as well-done as this must-see museum.
Sounds from my neighborhood: The Everglades
For some quick gratification try out this interactive site, Sounds of the Everglades. You and pick and play different combinations of sounds from nature. This is another great one to share with kids.
Take a ride through incredible Alpine scenery
There are lots of virtual train trips, so let’s start with a great one through the Bernina Pass, from St. Moritz, Switzerland to Tirano, Italy – All Aboard!
