In the world before confinement, when people could hope to go out for more than an hour at home – me – I was preparing a new Road Trip, I remember, it was mid-February.
At that time, I started to cross information, trace a beginning of route … In short, once the funds collected and the destination well underway, I had arrived at my favorite moment: the choice of vehicle in order to explore the southern section of the Carpathian Mountains the long and winding Transfagarasan Highway.
For this trip to the land of Dracula, the Kia XCeed seemed to me the ideal vehicle. Everything was together and in the best conditions. But there, the bell knocked on quarantine and gave a brutal stop to the logical sequence of this event. Everyone had to confine themselves to their home and I was forced to abandon the project.

After more than a week of confinement, I was already at the end of my rope. After trying the messy dinner experience with a girlfriend one in front of the other, finally in front of the phone.
After poking your nose while listening to the mixed buddies and finally after experimenting with the luscious virtual aperitif, it was time to do something. After thinking about it, I decided to “extend my comfort zone”
Whatever it costs, I decided to move. It took a few days before I finally convinced myself by asking if it was not too risky, telling myself I would be alone and in contact with no one.
I had to do it. Go!
The organization was both simple and effective, clearly, I got up from my sofa to head to my office (2min, going through the fridge). I turned on my computer, I swallowed my hundredth of soybean (there are products that I can not stand anymore and that I never bought again)… and I typed on Google: Street View.
I just had to burn hard, to find places, routes.
My journey started – yes – because the cars equipped with Google cameras have photographed exciting and breathtaking roads in their quest to map the planet.
Here are some unique mini-trips that you can do using Street View from the comfort of your sofa – and well, if you want to invite a girlfriend to leave with you nothing could be easier, thanks to Zoom in two clicks you can share your screen with the desired person.
