Explore the World from Your Couch

[My husband](http://chrsdavs.com) comes across all kinds of random things on the internet. If he thinks it’s interesting, he passes it on to me. If I think it’s *really* interesting then I’ll pass it on to you. This is a game that made the cut.

[GeoGuesser – Let’s explore the world!](http://geoguessr.com)

This game give you a random picture from Google’s street view. It could be of anywhere in the world. Using clues from the picture such as the geography, plant life, the language on streets signs, or the style of architecture, you try to guess where the place is on a map. You get points based on how close your guess is. It’s a fun way to test your knowledge of geography and culture, or just discover different parts of the world. So far from this game I’ve learned how to recognize the fjords of Norway and Japanese road signs. Two essential life skills.

I personally find it to be rather addicting, so be warned. Don’t start it if you don’t have some free time.
