Virtual travel is having a moment thanks to the ongoing pandemic. GlobeBop is an example of the sort of website that lets you travel the world from the comfort of your desktop.
Simply click on the globe icon and a random image from Google Street View appears. Some are awe-inspiring, some are mundane, but all are guaranteed to transport you somewhere you’ve likely never been before.
If you want to know what you’re looking at, click on the map pin and a map view of the location appears on the screen with its geographical coordinates.
GlobeBop likely won’t be a website that you come back to again and again for travel inspiration, but it will provide a brief diversion until we can all travel freely again.
