Around the World in One Day
This weekend, more than 50 broadcasters organized a Scope Day that took audiences around the globe. Over the course of 24 hours, they passed the cast,* taking us to some of the word’s most iconic destinations. Here are some of our favorites:
@mh_hassib started the day by giving us a chance to visit the pyramids in Cairo, Egypt (teaching us both the English and Arabic names of each pyramid).
@BoopFashionista — one of our resident broadcasters in London — took us to Big Ben as the clock struck 11pm, and then to the London Eye to see it lit up at night.
@WagamamaMama took us to Tōdai-ji in Nara, Japan, home of the largest bronze Buddha statue in the world.
@efrenchcafe took us to the beautiful Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild in the French Riviera — showcasing both the stunning scene and the history of the villa.
@Cheryl66stl, a true local, gave us a tour of St. Louis with a special visit to the top of St. Louis Arch.
@Rosscaneva took us to Milan, Italy to see the museum of Sforza Castle. Rossella took us behind the scenes with the lead curator to see the last work of Michelangelo.
@MTendsToTravel took us to Tiananmen Square, and together we explored 440 square meters of urban space in Beijing.
The Periscope community transports us around the globe every day. Thank you for sharing your worlds.
*Pass the cast: when a broadcaster tells the audience to join another broadcast, and then shares it with their followers — creating a waterfall effect.
