Now that most of us are stuck at home, left to our imaginations, creativity, (and perhaps some screen time) to escape reality, we've put together a list of our favorite guided tours provided on Google Earth's VOYAGER feature.
This app has quickly become our newest obsession, given it fills our heads (and eyes) with some Wanderlust as we patiently wait 'till we can get back to collecting stamps on our Passports.
Alas, the following list provides what we've found to be the most "otherworldly" of tours to see, and has left us impressed with how magnificent, mystical, and unearthly our very own Earth can actually be.
So grab the popcorn, kick back, and maybe even learn a thing or two while you explore your world from the tap of your fingers.
