Hopefully, you are continuing to be healthy and safe. Do you miss “doing stuff” after work and on weekends? With somany venues and events being closed or canceled right now, many organizations are filling the gap with expanded “virtual experiences” so that you can enjoy some of their offerings while sheltering in place. We’ve come across abunch of these and wanted to share the links with those of you that may be developing “cabin fever” while you work remotely and practice social distancing.
Since so many places are doing this globally, it’s a chance to “tour” places you wouldn’t usually be able to visit, like the Louvre or British Museum. It’s not quite the real thing, but some of these “virtual experiences” are pretty immersive – it almost feels as though you have really “gone” somewhere. You may like to try viewing one of these at the same time as a friend or family member and Face Time or text as you are “virtually experiencing”. Enjoy - and please take care!
