We’re all playing our part by staying home as much as possible. But thanks to technology, we can still enjoy life outside our doors without actually having to walk through them.

Allegedly you can see it from space, but you can definitely view it from home. Incredibly, it’s over 3000 miles along. I’m counting it as my exercise for the day. There’s lots to see and learn here – like the toboggan run visitors can ride from the top of the wall to the bottom of the hill!
I love viewing the majestic Galerie d’Apollon, Mona Lisa, and Egyptian antiques to try to convince myself I’m cultured. There’s a lot of cool things to see here too, including a walk underneath the pyramid, and another around the moat and drawbridge that was used in the 12th century to protect Paris from attack.
The curtain hasn’t come down on this New York giant: the Metropolitan Opera will be live-streaming a show every night at 7:30 eastern time. Similarly, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra is regularly broadcasting live performances on Youtube.
