Need a respite from the cold and snow?  It's as close as your laptop.  I took a little trip to Africa and saw giraffe, antelope, hippos and monkeys.  I could hear the birds chirping and hear the warm breeze.

You can travel the world with live streaming. I wasn't sure if I would see any kind of wildlife when I checked into Explore.com.  I saw a ton of action with animals wandering around doing their animal things. Maybe China or Grand Cayman is more your speed. It's a fun way to explore the world and ignore the piles of snow out the window.
