Welcome to this month’s FREETOGO blog post.
In this blog post, once again, I am going to do something a little different.
First, I am going to draw your attention to a few categories on which I have yet to focus. These are newly renamed Geography categories found on the Travel Now page. Then. I’ll mention one video in each category found by picking a name out of a hat.
1) To begin, please take a look at the Geography – N. America category. I believe you will find all of the 28 videos in this category interesting to watch.
However, as a starting point, look at the video, Washington, D.C., USA - A must-see city! (By the way, this video is so good that is used by many teachers as a virtual field trip for their students.)
“As the seat of the United States federal government and several international organizations, Washington is an important world political capital. The city, located on the Potomac River bordering Maryland and Virginia, is one of the most visited cities in the world, with more than 20 million tourists annually.”
2) Next, take a look at the Geography – S. America category. I believe you will also find the 12 videos in this category interesting to watch.
The video to focus on first? Argentina - 10 Best Places to Visit. If you have never been there, you’ll be amazed by what you see!
“Located in the southern region of South America in a large, elongated shape, Argentina was sparsely inhabited by a few indigenous tribes before Spain colonized it in the 16th and 17th centuries. Today, the country is an independent republic featuring varied landscapes, from rich plains to thick jungles, majestic mountains, pastoral steppes, and impressive glaciers. Here’s a look at the best places to visit in Argentina.”
3) Lastly, take a look at the Geography – Australia/Oceania category. Enjoy the 8 videos in this category!
Check out the video, Sydney, Australia | Expedia.
“Sydney is the capital city of the state of New South Wales and the most populous city in Australia. Located on Australia's east coast, the metropolis surrounds Sydney Harbour and extends about 70 km (43.5 mi) towards the Blue Mountains to the west, Hawkesbury to the north, the Royal National Park, and Macarthur to the south and southwest. The estimated population in June 2021 was over 5.2 million, meaning the city is home to approximately 66% of the state's population. Nicknames of the city include the "Emerald City" and the "Harbour City."
Sydney is known for the famous Sydney Opera House and the famous Sydney Bridge, both sitting on an equally famous harbour. It is one of the world’s best food and drink scenes. It has an incredibly rich culture, including the oldest continuous living culture on earth. Wildlife experiences. Stunning national parks. Sydney has it all – and then some.”
Note: FREETOGO is entirely free. Also, there are no ads on the site to interrupt your visit. However, that is not entirely true for many of the videos because YouTube hosts them. They are free to watch but have ads. Yet, if you wish, you can eliminate the ads by paying to become a premium member of YouTube.
