VIRTUAL VISIT – FEEL THE LOCATION BEFORE EVEN PLANNING YOUR VACATION
We tend to get overwhelmed when planning to travel to our favourite destination. It is very important to plan things like air tickets, stays, local transportation, food items etc. in advance. Anyway once we reach the destination, we will be thrown away by the beauty and forget our actual plans for a while.
As many travellers tell, I also would like to reiterate that it is much important to get lost in the place rather than just seeing things. One of the famous travel quotes says, “The traveller sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see.”
Rather than just seeing the new location, it will long last in our memories if we try to feel the beauty of the place. Among many things we plan for our travel, we come across various pictures, videos of them.
Most of the time these pictures and videos are not shared as it is in the internet. People regularly edit those pictures and videos and apply various filters and other sort of things to make it look more beautiful.
In order to get an idea about the travel destination even before landing there can be done with many online apps. One of them which stood top of all is the Google Street View. As per Wikipedia, Google Street View is “A technology featured in Google Maps and Google Earth that provides panoramic views from positions along many streets in the world.”
This technology helps the internet user to virtually travel most places in the world through his device with a steady internet connection. Take a look at Google Street View images of few famous tourist locations in the world.
These are real images which show the true color of the location captured by Google Street View camera. The best part in this is that one can just move around here and there by clicking on the respective director to look around.
