The Google World Wonders website is a fun one for explorers and travelers everywhere. The project uses Google’s 360 degree panoramic camera technology to capture both the interiors and exteriors of a number of fantastic locations around the planet and then put it online for all of us to enjoy. The results are Google Street View for some iconic destinations, not to mention a gigantic distraction from our daily lives.
Some of the more interesting locations available include Stonehenge, Versailles, the Swiss Alps and both Yellowstone and Yosemite National Parks. They also have the interior of Robert Falcon Scott’s Antarctic hut, which should prove of interest to many readers, as it still contains gear and other artifacts from the British explorers visits to the frozen continent.
If you’re looking for the opportunity to travel the world today without ever leaving home, then you’ll truly enjoy what Google has put together here. Be warned however, after you’ve finished strolling along the Banks of the Seine in Paris, you may wonder where your day went.
