5. Google Street View a Foreign Country
If you’ve always wanted to go on a holiday to a certain country but couldn’t afford it or go because of other reasons, Google Street View will let you experience the country. Just enter an address or a neighborhood located in the country, and see the sights, streets, squares, and more, by simply using your mouse. Just give it a whirl and have fun!
6. Tour the Earth
Staying at home doesn’t really mean that you can’t explore the outside world. So, if you and your friends want to keep yourself busy for a couple of hours, Google Earth can give you a tour of the earth. Just download the program or try the web version and fly around. Then, zoom in and get fairly close to the ground and you will find some links to pictures by users, Wikipedia links, and much more.
7. Take Tours in Art Museums and Art Galleries
Are you and your friends into art? Then, you would definitely want to have a look at some of the world’s most famous art museums. Yes, you read well. You can visit these amazing places online by using your browser only. Hence, get together in front of a computer and enjoy the beauty of the Louvre in Paris, Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, or Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.
8. Inspect the Solar System
Similar to the previous ones, in a way, you can also tour the solar system thanks to the probes which visited various asteroids, comets, and all the planets. There are tons of breathtaking images such as the Earth at Night taken with these probes. So, imagine how cool it would be to see the mudslides on Mars, storms on Jupiter, oceans on Europa, etc. NASA has a directory of images they’re showing from space each day, so it would be really fun to go through them and admire the beauty of the universe.
8. Explore a Virtual World
Now that you’ve explored what’s already out there, it’s time that you create your own world. What can be funnier and more amusing than creating your own action figures, or maybe avatars, that talk, walk, and emote just like real people. Once you log on a virtual world, like World of Warcraft or RuneScape, create your figures, you can interact with your friends’ figures and entertain yourself.
To sum up, regardless of the choice you make, each of these things will hold both your and your friends’ attention; some may increase your knowledge, while some will certainly make you dissolve into laughter.
