Go Virtual with Sharon – Explore the World’s Top Museums from the Comforts of Home

We are living a new normal; the coronavirus has interrupted life as we know it.  There is no getting around it, with the current directive to stay at home, many of us are going stir crazy. 

We are looking for ways to entertain ourselves after we have exhausted the best network and Netflix amusements on TV.

Now, like most people, my travel ambitions are limited to a walk around the neighborhood while practicing social distancing.

It’s time for a mind, “reset.”   If we can’t travel right now, it’s still possible to explore the world in other ways.

Fortunately, the internet makes it more achievable than ever before for people to satisfy their curiosity and experience the world from the comforts of home.
