Spring Break is just around the corner. This an opportunity that many in the Greater Rochester area use to escape the gray, gloomy weather and travel to sunnier, warmer climates. Unfortunately, with everything happening with the COVID-19 virus and the necessary precautions we must take, many people had to cancel their planned vacations this Spring. However, you still can “visit” and learn about different locations around the globe from your couch.
