Become a virtual tourist!

Being in lockdown with my children I am constantly on the lookout for new ways to connect to the outside world.  We discovered some interesting virtual walks around Venice and Hollywood, then thought where else could we go?

The next day a colleague sent some links to a few museums and suggested adding an ‘I Spy Trail’ (where you find 26 objects during your virtual tour beginning with all the letters of the alphabet) as a fun challenge.

Whether you are isolating or social distancing virtual tours are a great way to bring the world into your own home and support your wellbeing.

There are a wide variety of free apps, YouTube channels and live web cams for your mobile, tablet or computer.

We’ve tried a few and would like to share them with you…

With thanks to Claire Thorpe, Specialist OT for the I Spy inspiration!
