Virtual Vacations Around The World: Christ The Redeemer

May 28, 2020

Physical traveling may be off the table for a while, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a virtual adventure! While we may be stuck at home (for a very good reason!), we can still vacation to faraway places right from our living room couch. From national parks to historic sites to museums, satellites and virtual reality technology have made it possible for people to virtually travel all over the world. Heck, if we really wanted to, we could even visit the International Space Station and take a peek at what Earth looks like from outer space! How awesome is that, right? While many landmarks around the world are closed to visitors, virtual tours of these places are open 24/7. So sit back and relax while we take you on a trip to see some of the most amazing landmarks in the world. Bonus with virtual traveling? No packing, no airport security lines, and there’s no possible way you’ll lose your luggage!

Last week, we took a trip to the Great Wall of China. This week?

There’s a gigantic statue of Jesus with outstretched arms that stands ninety-eight feet tall (not including the twenty-six foot base!) on top of Mount Corcovado watching over the people of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Construction began in 1926 because people feared that there would be a wave of “godlessness” after World War I. It took five years to build and is considered the largest Art Deco statue in the world.
