Sometimes I want to be somewhere I’m not. Today, it was Yosemite. Fortunately, there’s a high-tech solution: virtual touring.
Here are a few of my favorite resources.
There are many more resources you can use for virtual traveling.
Do you use the Internet to “travel”? What are your favorite resources?
Update (2/15/2010). Here are a couple more resources I should have mentioned:
- Twitter — Chances are, there’s someone on Twitter tweeting about the location you’re interested in. Tweeting about the location likely will result in your being followed by that someone. For example, I tweeted about Yosemite and was soon followed by @THEYosemiteBlog. Doing a people search for Yosemite resulted in a lot more hits.
- Blogs — Finding blogs about a certain topic is easy. Google’s Blog Search or Technorati are great resources to find blogs.

What a wonderful idea! And thanks for including the resources.
You’re welcome! Sometimes, when the weather gets a little depressing a little too long (nah, that never happens…), I like to search for webcams in tropical locales.
I was surprised how many travel videos there are on YouTube.
Google Earth is fun because you can save your favorites so you can easily return later. I like to record places we’ve been on family vacations.
Happy travels! :-)
