Greetings, and welcome to this month’s FREETOGO blog post.
First, let’s talk about the cartoonish scenarios in the category titled See how people are using FREETOGO at the bottom of the ‘Travel Now’ page.
Have you viewed them all? If not, I recommend that you check them out.
If you have viewed them, do you see yourself using FREETOGO for a similar scenario in your life? (Or, can you suggest one to someone you know? I guarantee they will appreciate the suggestion.)
Does another scenario come to mind? Let me know, and I will add it to the page.
On to highlighting a few of the videos.
1) Under the Special & Unique category, there is a video titled 15 Most Unique Beaches in The World. Check it out. You will be surprised and amazed at the beaches shown in this video! It doesn’t matter if you’re a ‘beach’ person. The magnificence of these beaches is something to behold!
2) It is Back to School month for many locales. So, let’s have a look at the Libraries category.
Check out The World’s Most Magnificent Libraries video. Be reminded just how impressive are the collections housed in these buildings! Collections of everything you can imagine that has ever existed, and so much more. There are also so many books of fiction and non-fiction for one’s reading pleasure.
“In this reel, we circumnavigate the globe in search of some of the most unusual and awe-inspiring libraries collecting more than just books. We begin in Alaska at a particularly *macabre* library checking out preserved and taxidermied animals, head over to China to kick back in a surreal, infinite reading room, and get a whiff of history at the library of smells.”
There is a good reason this video has been viewed 869,121 times. Yes, there is a way beyond Google.
3) Staying in the Libraries category, check out The Library of Alexandria : Ancient Mysteries. Lost Treasures - Full Documentary
Over two-thousand years ago, this stark, sprawling ruin was probably the most important center for learning in the world. Here, men first figured out the size of the world and the number of stars in the sky. There were laboratories, gardens, a medical school, and over half-a-million books. The ancient library in Alexandria, Egypt educated some of the most brilliant minds ever known. These corridors may hold the secrets of centuries of knowledge. The seeds of our present-day culture were sewn in these old gallery ruins in Alexandria.
4) BONUS! Once again, I’d like to call your attention to a very special virtual travel site listed under the category, Like You Are There.
The site is called Window-Swap. Part of the website’s description is, “A place on the Internet where all we travel-hungry fools share our 'window views' (from all around the world) to help each other feel a little bit better till we can (responsibly) explore our beautiful planet again.”
I highly recommend that you check this out. It offers you a significant step into the world of Virtual Travel.
Again, I invite you to check out the above videos and the many others curated for this website.
Also, be sure to see all of the many ways people are using FREETOGO at the bottom of the ‘Travel Now’ page.
Most importantly, help to improve the quality of life of everyone. Please share this website far and wide, especially with anyone unable to travel freely. Sign up as a member, leave a testimonial, and visit the website regularly!
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.
