I started out visiting great wonders of the world - the Giza Pyramids, the Taj Mahal, Red Square, the Grand Canyon, even Disney World! Then I began exploring wild places - Antarctica, Iceland, Greenland, the Amazon jungle. It's all there, photographed from satellites, in high resolution images. You can "fly" over the landscape to get the big picture, or zoom in close enough to see people standing in line at the Eiffel Tower!
Tired of going where all the tourists go? Take a peek at the English countryside, or the streets of a small town in Australia. Have you ever wanted to really "see" the Dutch dikes you read about in your fourth grade geography books? Well, then, take a tour of Kinderdijk, Holland. Isn't it a beautiful place?!
Kinderdijk, HollandHave you ever wondered what your friends' neighborhood looks like? Just feed Google Earth their address and "fly over" for a visit! And if looking straight down on a location doesn't satisfy your curiosity, you can tilt the view to see the elevations! Here's a view of the scenery surrounding the home of a some friends of mine.
And zoom in closer to the ground, in Holland, and you will even spot some of their famous windmills.
Any of my readers recognize this "neighborhood"?
Yes, my name is Linda, and I'm a Google Earth addict. But I don't want to recover. Does anyone want to join me on a trip around the world? (If you'd like to download Google Earth - it's free - right here - and, in case you're wondering, I'm not on their payroll; I'm just a fan.)
