Ever find yourself sitting at your desk, imagining wandering the ancient streets of Rome or daydreaming about sitting on the beach in LA?
Hi, hello, um…YES!
Now with a new platform called StoryTrail, you can travel virtually to cities around the world without ever leaving your couch! On their website, Storytrail host a number of “video city guides” which take viewers on an audiovisual tour, delving past a city’s surface to discover hidden treasures and lesser known secrets.
Whether you’re planning a trip, want to impress well-traveled friends at parties or just need an escape, the videos tell the informative, entertaining and oftentimes bizarre histories of the world’s cities.
Storytrail is the first of its kind to offer video walking tours of famous cities and an interactive map. Each storytrail includes a walking route lead by Jason, who offers fun facts. The first destination launched is Rome, with London, Los Angeles and New Orleans amongst many others soon to follow!
Got the travel bug now?
See Rome for yourself. Storytrail is offering a prize package of a trip to Rome for two. To enter, create an account on the website and share on Facebook or Twitter.
While you’re waiting to be notified of your trip to Rome, get lost in this ancient city’s marvelous and gorgeous sights… from your armchair.
