Does anybody else find themselves wasting (?) hours looking at the planet through google maps?  I think it might be my new obsession.  I can't help myself.  A mention of a place I don't know and I'm google-mapping it and, before I know it, have distracted myself for a long time.  Usually time I can't afford.  ;~P

But I can't express how enamoured I am of this planet, and how pretty it is.  The colours and shapes... I can look at them forever!

I was reading a news article this morning in which there was a reference to Lake Titicaca, and I realised, despite knowing the name really well, I had no idea where it was or what it looked like.  Enter google maps.  And, as per my usual style, I looked around a bit and found this pretty place -

...and ending up spending an hour trying to find the name of this body of water.  The best I can do is tell you that it's in Bolivia, south of Lake Titicaca, and west of Lake Poopo`.   Why doesn't google maps label water?  I've had this problem looking up rivers too.  Bad googlemaps!

But isn't it pretty?!

Me too! I love it to death!! Good to know I'm not the only one crazily obsessed. XD

just alternating between my house and yours and making it zoom out and in again.

Zooming down on the Eiffel Tower.

Trying to work out which Maldive I stayed on!

Hahaha! My house looks way different now. They haven't updated our satellite pic since 2005 I'd estimate.

I was looking at the Islands I honeymooned on back in '85 a couple of nights ago! XD You can zoom in on Dunk Island, but Bedarra is still a blur. ;~P
