Europe, Travel Tips

Take a Virtual Tour of Europe!

Our friends at the Tour Guy sent us an email with the headline “Social Distance Doesn’t Mean Cultural Distance.” That slogan resonated with me. Jon and I have been feeling pretty sad after having to cancel or postpone some of our travel plans for this year. I’ve been feeling like Europe and all the lovely culture its cities hold are more distant now than ever before. I’m sure many of you are experiencing the same melancholy. My heart hurts for all those who are suffering right now. Our globe is going through a tough time, so it’s natural to want to escape a little.

I’ve been using this time of being home-bound to study Italian, cook, and read history. But I crave more culture!

I’m also worried about the small-business owners we’ve befriended abroad. How are they going to survive this economic turmoil and downturn of tourism?

With all these concerns, I’ve been in a bit of a funk. And then I opened the Tour Guy’s email and found a way to:

  • Take a virtual voyage to my favorite places.
  • Help the tourism industry.
  • Break away from negative news.
  • Explore some of the world’s richest, cultural sites.

…all at a great price.

The virtual tours are hour-long experiences led by the Tour Guy’s fabulous guides.  Your whole family (or as many as can fit around a computer) can get in on the action. Prices are around $15 dollars with our link:
