From the Norwegian fjords to the Serengeti, readers are using the internet to bring music, vistas, wildlife, art and street life into their homes
One of my joys of travelling is listening to music on a train while watching a new country spool by outside the window. During lockdown I discovered how to replicate this experience while confined to the house: by watching drone footage of faraway places on YouTube. My favourite was Flying Over Norway, an hour-long feature flying above fjords, bays and fishing villages. The footage offers a bird’s-eye view of deep valleys in shadow, winding roads and bridges connecting rocky islands. I was close enough to see people walking along the beach yet could also see how the landscapes fit together.
