Since no one is allowed to travel right now, we have to do what we can to keep ourselves stimulated.

There are tons of online resources for fun and learning, but one avenue you maybe haven’t explored yet is a Facebook group called “View From My Window.”

People from all over the world share snapshots of what’s going on outside the window of their homes and it’s a nice way to escape reality.

Here are some very interesting photos that people have submitted to the group.

Those photos satisfied my urge to get outside and explore…at least a little bit.

Now we want you to join in on the fun!

In the comments, please share a photo of what’s going on outside a window in your house, apartment, RV, or wherever you happen to live.

We’d love to hear from you!
