Google Maps expands in Europe

In addition to previous maps, there is now satellite coverage of several major European cities. Have a look at Mont St Michel, Münsterplatz in Freiburg, San Marcus Square in Venice, Castelgandolfo, the alcazar of Segovia

It also enables local business search and driving directions. I love this!

Bunker safari

The sound of Salzburg

"It is based on the true story of Maria von Trapp, even though I suspect she didn’t go singing alone in the mountain ranges."

The fairytale castles of Sintra

"The Portuguese town of Sintra is famous for many beautiful castles. Palácio Nacional da Pena is arguably the most stunning of the lot. "

Having champagne in Champagne

"We roamed the damp and chilly tunnels and stumbled upon a large barrel delivered by Napoleon himself."

Wazzup in Vaduz

"Vaduz Castle is overlooking the town from a hill, a short walk from the center. It’s really a postcard view with the alps in the background, which I’m sure the prince enjoys as he sips his morning coffee while towering above his loyal subjects."

On the Trans-Siberian

"Since the toilets were locked during the seven hour stop, we had to bribe the provodnitsas to use the facilities. Then came the Mongols."
