Hi folks! Myran here (Co-Founder of Modern Gents)!
Just wanted to share an awesome social distancing activity you can do at home for those of you who love to travel!

Let’s face it… most of us had travel plans before the coronavirus wiped them out!
Some of us in the office were planning on going to festivals like Coachella, others wanted to visit countries like Italy, and I myself was planning on taking the family to visit one of my favorite national parks: Yosemite.
Unfortunately due to this COVID-19 global pandemic, all our plans came to a screeching halt! Travel is not recommended, festivals have been rescheduled and most national parks are officially closed.

We’re all pretty bummed out, but what can we do right?
I’m happy to report that you can still visit some amazing national parks while you’re nice and cozy at home in quarantine! Our friends over at Google have graciously gifted us with some amazing virtual tours of some of the best national parks in the good ol’ United States of America!
I’ve done a few tours myself already and it’s actually really cool! If you have a pine air freshener handy, it can give you an even more realistic feel.

While this may not be as good as the real thing, it’s definitely a good compromise for the time being! We’re definitely fortunate to be living in a time where we have such great technology. I know I’ll be virtually touring some more of these parks in the meantime while I wait for things to clear up! If you have a pine air freshener handy, it makes things feel a bit more authentic 🙂
Nonetheless, stay safe out there peeps!
P.S. Were you planning on traveling this spring and summer? Let us know in the comments below! Think of it as wanderlust therapy 🙂
