Tell Us How You Are Fulfilling Your Thirst For Wonder

Across the globe, entire cities and communities have come to a standstill. For those of us who thrive on exploring the wonders of the world, the spread of the COVID-19 virus has put a hold on those activities for now.

Despite being relegated to our homes and unable to engage with the world as we normally would, doesn’t mean our thirst for wonder can’t be satisfied from the safety of the couch. Perhaps you are spending this time exploring your favorite museum’s digital exhibits. Or maybe you are more inclined to take a few virtual tours of long lost shipwrecks.

However you are finding ways to satisfy your curiosity during these uncertain times, we’d love to hear it! In the thread below tell us how you are still seeking out wonder from right in your own home. If you have any images or links, feel free to share! Your submission may be included in an upcoming round-up article on Atlas Obscura.

I am using Google MyMaps to signpost all interesting places that Atlas Obscura presents me. Perhaps, just perhaps one day I will pass next to one or the other and stop for an in-person moment of wonder!

Believe me, you do not want to see how many places I have already marked :slight_smile:

Reading and re-reading my favorite books that ranges from fiction to history to mystery to controversial. Also, I have enrolled at edx online courses and learned so many things from the comfort of my own home and of course staying safe. Podcasts on histories, Netflix documentaries and of course Atlas Obscura’s recommendations are always a treat.
