Daily Prompt: Oasis

As a great sufferer of wanderlust, I would love nothing more than to escape to various places around the world: a rainy English countryside, a French café, an Australian beach, the busy streets of Manhattan, etc.

Since I don’t have money to travel internationally, I use Globe Genie. It’s a website that uses Google Maps to “teleport” you to a random location in the world. You can specify which continents you want to visit (sometimes, I just click Antarctica and look at icy mountains and penguins.) But it’s really cool.

More often than not, the website just makes me want to travel that much more, but it’s a nice little getaway when I’m stressed.

    Oh wow – I just went on a trip and saw some sheep with some strange blue markings on their butts, alongside some water and cliffs… Thanks for posting that. I really enjoyed it. :)
