This group has brought my heart much needed solace. We may have had to cancel some significant travel in 2020 but through your windows we have wandered the world—and without a single security check or an ounce of jet lag! Your pictures, and words, have made me sigh, smile, and shake my head in wonder. It is so lovely to feel connected, kindred spirits together in quarantine. Indeed when one door closes, many many windows open!

This group should be awarded a Pulitzer Prize, if any Facebook group has reached so many people all over the world, as you have, I don't know about it. I have met, virtually, and talked to nice people from all over the world, now that is a Peace initiative!!!

It is overwhelming to me how this small yet beautiful idea has brought people together from all around the world.

A continent separates me from my mother, but early in this pandemic we shared our thoughts about views and cities here.

It is certainly a composite of the world and the beauty that surrounds us when we choose to see the good in humankind.

It’s not just the photos, it is what people write that captures a unique time in our global history and affirms how similar we all are, how meaningless our differences.If it teaches us just that, it will be enough.

The group you did has been a lifesaver to many of us - including me during this unprecedented time - and it will be missed by me, and I am sure many others - immensely.

I am so glad that I came across your Facebook group as it was a struggle emotionally for me during our lockdown of 6 months. Your inspiration of giving everyone something else to look out at and also think of others was brilliant.

My Grandad said they enjoyed looking through all the places they have travelled over the years through the pictures and remembering memories they had both forgotten.

I was thrilled to see such views from ordinary backyards like mine to wonderful vistas. This window on the world helped us all.
