Welcome to this month’s FREETOGO blog post.


This month I’ll spotlight a couple of videos and the addition of a category.


1) As we continue into spring, an uplifting quote comes to mind. “Spring – when we are reminded just how wonderful change can be.” Of course, one of the beautiful springtime changes is when flowers bloom.


With that in mind, I’ll bring your attention to a video in the Gardens & Parks category.


Beautiful Flower Garden in Canada, The Butchart Gardens



Speaking of beautiful changes, Butchart Gardens stands out in this regard.


From Wikipedia –


“Robert Butchart (1856–1943) began manufacturing Portland cement in 1888 near his birthplace of Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada. Then, he and his wife Jennie Butchart (1866–1950) came to the west coast of Canada because of the rich limestone deposits necessary for cement production." Robert immediately opened a quarry which allowed him to become one of the largest cement producers in the Northwest.


"In 1909, when the limestone quarry was exhausted, Jennie set about turning it into the Sunken Garden, which was completed in 1921.” After many years of improvements, it has become a magnificent tourist destination called Butchart Gardens.


2) Next, I’d like to point your attention to a video that has proven to be a popular viewing choice for many. The video can be found in the Natural Wonders Category and is titled


7 Most Wonderful Natural Phenomena In The World


3) Lastly, I want to let you know that I have added another category on the Travel Now page called Houses and Mansions. Currently, all of the houses and mansions listed are U.S.-based. I plan to add others from around the world as time goes on.


Instead of recommending a particular video, I encourage you to check out the category to see which one/ones look most appealing to you.


=======================================

Get creative and have some fun traveling virtually. I look forward to the day when the term Virtual Travel will be as commonplace as the term travel.
