Virtual Walks Around Cities in the Time of Quarantine

I’m a background video type of guy. When I’m at my computer, I usually like something I can glance at for a bit, just to give my working environment a sense of space or motion. Shows and movies are tricky though because I miss out on about 60% of the story. (Favorite movies or shows you have already watched come in handy for this)

But since I’ve been locked in the house now for about 11 days (with a few grocery runs and short drives just to get some sun, to cold too walk atm), I’ve needed something a little more. Youtube has a ton of videos of people just walking around busy cities, or small wilderness trails. I need to create a playlist for these. The only thing is that most of these walks are in crowded cities and my brain starts screaming “SOCIAL DISTANCING!!!!!” How quickly it has been trained.

Here’s one from around Paris:

Or Venice:

Or Beacon Hill in Boston while it’s raining:
