Welcome to this month’s FREETOGO blog post.
This month I’ll spotlight several videos and one fun message.
1) Spring is the time of year for new beginnings. Additionally, it is when many, after shaking off the weight of winter, once again begin to fly free. (As well, for this spring, hopefully, everyone gets to start shaking off the weight of the pandemic we have all endured for so long.)
With that in mind, I’ll bring your attention to the
Surabaya International Kite Festival, 2015
held in Surabaya, Indonesia. This video can be found in the Annual Events category. I hope you enjoy this event as much as those in attendance on the day of the event!
2) Next, I’d like to point your attention to a pretty spectacular annual event that happens in India every March.
I have placed two videos showcasing this event in the Annual Events category. They are titled
Get an Up-Close Look at the Colorful Holi Festival | National Geographic
“See clouds of neon-colored powder envelop villages across India during Holi Festival. Each year, crowds gather to celebrate the beginning of spring with an explosion of color, traditional folk music, and more. “
“Join the Planet Earth II team in India as they film the Holi Festival, the most colourful festival in the world. It is an amazing celebration of love!”
3) It’s Party Time!
Why not do something bold AND FUN? Throw a FREETOGO viewing party!
Pick a theme, select a video (or videos) to watch at the party, pull together the necessary party items, invite your friends, and HAVE A BLAST! (Let me know if you need help in finding the right video(s) or party items.)
Share your experience with me. Pictures and/or videos are always good.
4) Lastly, this is a reminder to check out the Current Holiday & Season Showcase.
Note: FREETOGO is entirely free. Also, there are no ads on the site to interrupt your visit. That is not true for many of the videos because YouTube hosts them. However, if you wish, you can eliminate the ads by paying to become a premium member of YouTube.

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.
