8 Virtual Visits That Will Inspire You

With travel not happening right now, and the constant news of gloom and doom, it’s hard to feel inspired. I don’t think I’m alone in how I feel at the moment. I was on Instagram the other day and felt inspired by the images I saw and I’m sharing the best for you.

1. From @bucketlisters was a resource to visit several museums virtually. Visit The Met, Natural History Museum, Palace of Versailles, The Getty, SF MOMA, and more. Who doesn’t feel inspired after visiting a museum?

2. Check out @fauxrealjewelry who posted this beautiful photo taken by of Kitanomaru Park in Japan while the cherry blossoms were blooming. You can visit a live cam of this section.

As spring sets in, temperatures are rising, the days are getting longer, and flowers are blooming across the world. What better way to welcome it than by appreciating the beautiful blooms it brings? While we can't get to the parks and botanical gardens in person this year that are typically home to the pink petals, you can still see them! When you think of cherry blossoms in Tokyo, you've likely seen this scene, an umbrella of pink draping over the moat below. That's Kitanomaru Park, a popular public green space directly north of the Tokyo Imperial Palace. In the fall, it's a display of red and orange, and in the spring, it becomes a sea of pink, attracting tourists from around the world to take pictures either from the land or from a rowboat in the moat. And while the Chiyoda Cherry Blossom Festival is canceled for 2020, a webcam has been set up for you to view the show from home. Go to https://www.webcamhopper.com/map/4984.html to watch it live. Pro tip: Stream it during Tokyo's daylight for the best view.
