This Website Lets You Enjoy Views From Other People's Windows Around the World, So We'll Be in Spain
As travel-lovers everywhere are trying to keep busy while staying grounded at home, there's now a website called WindowSwap that allows you to cycle through picturesque views from other people's windows around the world. The views are videos (with sound!) so it feels like you're actually there, and you can easily click on "Open a new window somewhere in the world" to immediately switch locations. You can also submit your own view to share with others.
Created by the husband-and-wife duo Sonali Ranjit and Vaishnav Balasubramaniam, WindowSwap was a social-distancing passion project that was born as they grew bored with the view from their own window. According to the founders, it's "a place where strangers can swap views from their windows to help us all feel a little bit better till we can (responsibly) explore our beautiful planet again." With international travel restrictions changing daily and nonessential travel paused for the time being, this certainly gives us that glimpse of wanderlust we all need.
From the city streets in Istanbul to the countrysides in Austria, we've rounded up our favorite prerecorded window scenes all around the world.
