J is for Journeys #atozchallenge


Alright, so this past year has not been great in terms of travel opportunities. If you are like me, and you like to explore new places, it has been quite exhausting to stay put. Travel is one of the Categories for bloggers in this challenge, and I love reading about people's journeys, experiences, and countries I have never been to.

Since we are still pretty much staying put, today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite online games that revolve around travel:

GeoGuessr. There is a free version and a "pro version", but even the free version is fun. It gives you random street views from around the world, and you have to guess the place where the picture was taken. Anywhere. In the world. It is quite a challenge, but who doesn't love a challenge?

City Guesser. This one gives you videos from cities around the world, and asks you to guess where you are. Honestly, I just like to look at the place, and the people walking around.

The Map Zoom Quiz. This one starts you zoomed in on a city map, and you have to guess the city. You can zoom out to see more, but you lose points. Zooooooom!

What are your favorite places around the world? And your favorite travel blogs? Are you a travel blogger yourself? Let us know in the comments!

I am not a travel blogger but I have had some posts on places I have been to in my blog .... Among the places I have visited Cairns in Australia and Bali have been my favourites...Of course India has more and more things to discover that seem never ending....But I love the whole idea of travel more than the places ....

I'm not a travel blogger but I do love getting out to explore our area which includes easily to get to places surrounding us, so day trips are a big part of our weekend fun. We did more of it pre-Covid than we do now but still we get out when we can. :)

Stop by when you can to take a peek at my newest Looney Tunes Art Sketch. Foghorn's Joke Advice. Happy A2Zing!!

Crackerberries said...

I think we are all travel bloggers. Every day we visit someone else’s blog makes us a travel blogger because we travel to their world. I like to go on journeys every day as I sit down to do some journaling I can go most anywhere.
Have a great day.
Cheers,
Crackerberries

I love the sound of this. I love maps anyway, and my saviour during lockdown has been the fortnightly Zoom meetings with my orienteering club. I'm sure some of them would like these sites - I must tell them!

Great post :)

I have traveled only a little of the world but most of my country (India). Am more of a picture person and love to stay motivated with beautiful and intriguing stills.

Saved these tools for my fellow travel bloggers. Am sure they will find it interesting.

I wrote about Joyful Blogging for today's letter. The day I figured this missing piece, my blog became a money magnet.

Gail M Baugniet - Author said...

I traveled some in the 70s and 80s in western Europe but "settled down" after moving to Hawaii and only traveled around the islands. I know - poor me. But my sisters and I had booked a cruise for our milestone birthdays to sail in October 2020 - now rescheduled for 2022. Thanks for mentioning the "games" today. I needed that for the Scavenger Hunt!

Journeys have taken a back seat for one year, and only possibles virtual tours. I love to travel and explore places and people. Have written few travel posts too.

My most memorable travel was to USA in 2008. I had been there to meet my sisters in survival of breast cancer.
