    Even for those of us who enjoy journeying to far-off lands, travel can be a pain. From packing to baggage fees to long layovers to lost luggage, there can be a lot of headaches involved—even when the destination far outweighs the hassles of getting there.

    Unfortunately, non-essential travel has come to a halt throughout much of the world. Fortunately, there’s the Internet. Here are a few recommendations for sightseeing in the virtual world—no passport required!
