Walk This Way

Most of us have not had the option to travel during the past year, so we have to make do with any virtual alternative that comes along. Until it’s safe again, you can almost satisfy those travel urges with City Walks. The site offers a wide range of virtual video walks through metropolitan areas around the world, all without narration, allowing you experience them for yourself.

City Walks was created by Aristomenis Georgiopoulos and Artemis Stiga as a way for everyone to “explore the world from your screen” during COVID-19. The project features relaxing  videos of rambles through cities such as Amsterdam, Madrid, Seville, Istanbul, and Vancouver. New videos and cities are added every day.

    Thanks, Brian! I might have a wander through Amsterdam later. I’m in dire need of cheering up 😦

    Wonderful, thank you for sharing. I didn’t know where to go first and then decided for Venice. My one big wish for us travelers and/or living in popular places is for tourism to move away from mass. And thinking of Venice, especially from curse ships. The typo just happened, but I am leaving it.

    • They are a curse. Venice is no place for the enormous, polluting ships and the city just isn’t big enough for thousands of extra tourists daily. Unfortunately, the cruise ship curse has already ruined many wonderful destinations. For example, when I first visited the Mexican island of Cozumel it was a sleepy place with one small town and a wild interior. There were untouched ruins and miles of empty beaches. After the cruise port was built, it turned into a crowded, dirty Disneyland for obese Americans.
