A fantastic and low-cost way to discover our planet and visit places far away is made possible by Google. By using their browser Google Earth, you can scroll, zoom, pan and tilt your view of Earth as it is composed of thousand high-res satellite images.
Personnally, I like to find the places I have visited, and learn of other that are part of history. Especially large objects such as airfields, racetracks en metropoles are easy to find from your home.
Visit Google for more information or download the free version of their product.
