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.

@SandyChoiRadio — via @ParachuteTV1 — took us to the Green Sand Beach in Hawaii, one of four green sand beaches accessible in the world.

@MTendsToTravel took us to Tiananmen Square, and together we explored 440 square meters of urban space in Beijing.

@geoffgolberg closed out the night in NYC, bringing us to the Met. In true Geoff form, he showcased some amazing street talent in New York with a special #ScopeDay performance.

The Periscope community transports us around the globe every day. Thank you for sharing your worlds.

Much love,

Team Periscope
