This week in inspiration: Opera in your living room, creative ways to “travel”, and at-home wine tastings.
If you’re wishing there was more “great outdoors” in your backyard or balcony, then look no further than these wild live streams from around the world. You can watch for orcas off the coast of British Colombia, catch the sunset in Waikiki, and spot pandas chomping bamboo.
We’ve also been tuning in to the Metropolitan Opera’s nightly stream of past concerts (and maybe attempting to hit some of those high notes—now’s a great time to try something new!).
Another concert to watch for? Andrea Bocelli is performing for an all-virtual audience this Sunday for an Easter celebration in the famous Milan cathedral.
If opera isn’t your thing—well, maybe wine-tasting notes are more your tune? Vineyards around the U.S. are offering their best bottles paired with online tasting classes, so you can sip with an expert right in your living room
Speaking of “going” places, this story of people using props around their house (and a little Photoshop magic) to recreate travel adventures definitely made us smile. Where would you pretend to be right now? I’m thinking of turning my couch into a boat ride along the Seine.
