While travel is slowing coming back, most of us are still stuck at home which means virtual experiences are one of the few ways to still experience the world. Slow TV is a fantastic resource that catalogues a host of languorous videos that let you view the world in a laid back way.
Take a first-person evening walk through the streets of Tokyo or a leafy hike along a British Columbia trail. These videos are relaxing and eye-opening portals into life in other places.
Since they are long and not narrated in any way, these videos might not hold your attention from start to finish, but they are nice to have on in the background while you’re working at your computer. I like to run mine on a second monitor while I’m doing other work then, when I need a distraction, watch what’s going on in another part of the world and dream of the day that I get to see it in person.
