From the soothing sounds of the ocean to the swoosh of cutting through fresh snow atop a mountain, these Instagram videos will take you around the world in three minutes

A year into the Covid-19 pandemic, you're not alone if you miss travelling. Due to continued travel restrictions and nationwide lockdowns, for many in Hong Kong it's been a twelve-month stint of staying put in our city. And while we've used this extra time spent in Hong Kong to explore everything from the hidden hiking trails and secret islands, to the bustling neighbourhoods and leafy country parks, there's nothing that excites the senses more than stepping off a plane and exploring a new destination. The smells of intriguing new cuisines, the sights of untrodden lands and the many varied sounds of travel are what make it so captivating for so many.

Although it still may be many months before "normal" life and travel resume, companies have been creating new ways to bring the experience to us in the comfort of our homes––from AR museum tours to bottled air direct from the UK––and now you can experience the sights and sounds of some of the most popular destinations.

British airline Easy Jet has released a series of three-minute long videos on their Instagram page to aid those yearning for a change of scene. The videos include everything from a beachfront sunrise to skiing through fresh snow, the sites of Paris and the sound of waves crashing on the shore.

To sate your wanderlust until your next trip away, take a look at the videos below and be transported while working from home.
