Choose. Practice. Realize. Month Six.
“What I Did on my Summer Vacation.” Remember having to write that essay when returning to school in the fall? For this month’s “12 in 12” I took a virtual vacation. Every day. No fees, no luggage, no complicated travel itineraries. For the month of June I felt like I travelled the world via my computer by some spectacular professional (and amateur) photography and videos. It was a complete joy to visit the World Wonders Project by Google. Using Street View, 3D modeling, and other technologies, they have posted photos and information on some of the most famous sites on earth, world heritage sites, most of which I have never had the pleasure of seeing in person and certainly never will. Using their 360-degree pan feature of some of the featured photos, you actually get the feeling that you are standing there looking around. It was breathtaking as well as enlightening, as each location and theme included text. I learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed those minutes each day when I could “travel” to my chosen destination and enjoy the view. It really felt like a month of mini vacations….minus the airline fees, passport, and jet lag. It was sheer pleasure. Try it!
