Windowswap .Com: Feeling a little sick of the same old view from your window as the coronavirus outbreak continues to restrict travel? The Window-Swap.com website lets you look at someone else’s view for a change. You might find yourself looking at an office building in Germany, palm trees in India, a shopping street in London, a sunset in France, or a hill in Italy. The Singapore-based husband and wife, Vaishnav Balasubramaniam and Sonali Ranjit, set up the site to give tourists a chance to see something new without leaving their homes.
“My husband and I were growing bored with the view from our window — so we created a place on the internet where you can open a new window somewhere else in the world!” Ranjit wrote on Bored Panda. “A place where strangers can swap views from their windows to helps us all feel a little bit better till we can (responsibly) explore our beautiful planet again.”
Ranjit could not be reached for comment immediately, but wrote on Twitter, “Hope this place on the internet helps reduce your lockdown blues in some small way.”
