Traveling the World through Social Media and Modern Tech

Some people find great passion in traveling the world. It’s refreshing and it’s fulfilling but, most times it’s also expensive. That being said, a lot of people would want to go to lands far beyond their grasp like Australia or the United States, but just don’t have the means at the time being. On top of that, countries such as the US also need you to apply for E Visa USA which is an ESTA VISA of sorts. This makes things even more complicated for those who want to explore the country.

This doesn’t mean that people finding themselves in this situation will never get the chance to see historical US landmarks or see how the streets of various cities look like and if they’re just like they see in movies. Today’s technology has made it possible for people to experience such things in ways before unfathomable.

Let’s take a look at some of the ways in which modern technology can help you travel the world.

Social Media

Social media is a great way to stay connected with friends and family and to have people react to your more or less silly photos. However, it can be an amazing opportunity to get an insight into what it means to live in a particular country. By following people from that country you allow yourself to see through their eyes what it’s like there. People love to take photos of their trips and post them to platforms like Facebook or Instagram, making it easy to follow and observe what it’s like in the countries these people visit.

YouTube

YouTube is the place to go for any kind of video content you might require. That being said, there are many channels that are based on the host traveling the world. You can tag along for the ride from the comfort of your living room as they post new entries in their online video journal and see new adventures in the lands you too long to explore.

There are loads of channels that focus on specific parts of different countries such as the cuisine or local attractions, and there are some that show everything. It makes it quite easy to find a channel that provides the exact content you want in a video.

Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality is a new technology that allows people to experience things in a complete virtual space. It’s something pulled right out of a Sci-Fi flick, but it’s real. The technology still has a long way to go but the first steps look amazing. One particular fruit of this tech is that Google was able to create a VR version of their Google Earth software. This allows you to fly above the Grand Canyon and to walk on the streets of Paris as you were really there, all thanks to Google satellite images from the real world and the power of virtual reality.
