Periscope

“Travel the world through someone else’s eyes…”¬†says the Periscope website.

Sign me up! This app connects you with other users and lets you experience different¬†cities and events through their eyes. I popped on this morning to try it out and someone was on a ride at Magic Kingdom! It’s basically like watching a shaky iPhone home video of whatever the person you’re following is doing, but it’s real time which adds a bit of novelty.

National Geographic covered this app as well, noting their favorite ‘Scopers to follow were a safari leader in South Africa (@GerryVanDerWalt), a tour guide in Paris (@ClaireWad) and an American expat in Hong Kong (@PenguinSix).

The wanderlust lives on.
