The more time you spend social distancing in your apartment, the more a kitchen table covered in envelopes looks like a white-capped mountain at the far reaches of the Earth. That’s why it can be helpful to explore the outside world in whatever ways you can. Thankfully, Google Earth is making it shockingly easy to go on an adventure, albeit virtually, by offering digital tours of 30 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
It’s never been a more appropriate time to explore areas with cultural, historical, and scientific significance. These historical sites provide communities with a sense of pride and identity. They remind us all that, while the world is ever-evolving in sometimes scary ways, the beauty in humanity can and should be preserved.
