Travelling has become a lot more complicated thanks to COVID-19. Think international border closures, state border closures, lockdowns, hotel quarantine, border passes and border bubbles.
It's not surprising that some older Australians are feeling reluctant to travel, even to other parts of Australia - after all who wants to get caught on the wrong side of a locked-down border for perhaps weeks or months.
So if you are itching for a travel experience but wary of travelling, then the immersive, live streaming platform Heygo, could be the answer.
Heygo has live interactive tours in over 450 destinations allowing anyone with an internet connection to explore the world - and it recently launched in Australia.
Aussie tour guide at Heygo, Alexander Moller, is placing the marvels of down under within our grasp, interactively, and without having to wait for regulations to allow travel.
Since joining the platform, Moller has run over 200 live tours for highly engaged audiences around the world and he is about to embark on an all encompassing van life tour of Australia, that even includes Jurassic World LEGO exhibition and 'how to meditate with your cup of tea'.
One of Heygo's most popular tour guides, Moller and his tour fans globally have really taken to one another.
"I had two classrooms of around 60 kids spotting kangaroos with me in the NSW bush," said Moller, "what a special, and unexpected, occasion that tour was."
Moller is a working actor from Melbourne. He will be guiding travellers around the koala hospital in Port Macquarie, NSW, kayaking with wild dolphins, infamous Nimbin, the stunning Great Ocean Road, sightseeing in Melbourne, the Gold Coast and Brisbane, visiting the Great Barrier Reef, whale spotting, the Australian War Museum in Canberra and many more live interactive tours
According to Moller, Heygo has provided him with the opportunity to share Australia with people from all over the world, allowing them to also find a passion for it
"As a passionate traveller for many years, I too have found much pleasure and personal growth from visiting exquisite parts of this country. I believe I have found a way to allow others to do the same, without the financial, legal or health risks and restrictions," Moller said.
All Heygo's tours globally are free to join, and participants simply gift a tip to the guide at the end, based on their own personal enjoyment of the tour. All tours are completely interactive too, so participants won't have to leave with any burning questions.
