A fluffy White Swiss Shepherd is giving online tours of some of Switzerland’s most breathtaking places via Instagram.
Rasta, a White Swiss Shepherd is here to save the day as many of us are longing to travel but cannot due to lockdowns.
Rasta and his mom, Sylvia Michel, are exploring Switzerland together and documenting their adventures to the country’s magnificent countryside including waterfalls, lakes and mountains.
Over the years, Michel, a professional photographer, has been capturing Rasta and Switzerland’s breathtaking scenery since 2014, according to Business Insider. The photos and videos have led to Rasta’s account gathering more than 300,000 followers.
“I recognize that many people aren’t that lucky to go outside,” Michel said. “People are very thankful that we show them something beautiful.”
Rasta and Michel hike through the country’s beautiful flower fields, across mountains, and around lakes for hours each day with Michel calling it ‘paradise’.
For those who are staying at home, they can tune into Rasta and Michel’s adventures in order to go on a virtual vacation.
For now, Switzerland is easing its lockdown and Michel can go out for hikes as long as she abides by Switzerland’s social distancing guidelines, which she says isn’t hard to do in her area.
