Recently I I have gotten into playing GeoGuessr. Has anyone else played this online game? I absolutely love it, and have been playing long enough to start being able to identify very quickly the countries or regions I am in (e.g., Southeast Asia, Japan, Europe, Brazil). The reason I bring this up is, that I have had the opportunity over my life to visit some countries personally, but not nearly as many as I would like. Geoguessr is giving me the chance to get to know a bit about countries - even ones I have been to - that one doesn't see, normally - the villages, the back roads, etc. Some other travel shows, like Expedition Unknown, also provide such exposure.

I'd be interested in other peoples' experience in "virtual World travel" via nontraditional means.


A well reasoned argument is like a diamond: impervious to corruption and crystal clear - and infinitely rarer.

Here, as elsewhere, people are outraged at what feels like a rigged game -- an economy that won't respond, a democracy that won't listen, and a financial sector that holds all the cards. - Robert Reich

I might look into this. I'm currently playing Assassin's Creed:Odyssey again. I've been romping around ancient Greece for the last few months as a mercenary fighting for both sides in the Peloponnesian War

A trip to Japan and the Isle of Tsushima is on my itinerary soon to join the last of the Samurai as they battle the Mongol hordes. I've got a lot to do in ancient Egypt as well, but I dunno if I'll ever make it there...

I wanna do a stint among the Vikings too, but even with practically unlimited time to waste I find it hard to get to all the places I want to go without ever leaving my house.


Good coffee, good weed, and time on my hands...
