Since I have had my money tied up in medical bills and rising gas prices, I've been finding ways to get away for nothing. One thing that I've been doing is taking, what I call, G@@gle Satellite vacations (I think you can figure it out).
It started out innocently enough--just checking stuff out around where I live. Then I started looking at my old stomping grounds and flats where I lived in Northern England, where I sold vacuum cleaners for Jesus back in the day. After indulging myself in some nostalgia I wondered to myself what else there was in this world to spy on. Would it be possible for me to find lake Titicaca, for example. I'll be damed if I did just that. From lake "booby poo-poo" I then ventured over to Egypt to see if I could find any pyramids. I did, but not the classic ones. I figured they'd be along the Nile somewhere. Eventually, I did find the right ones. Since then I have been checking out loads of places, rarely finding what I'd set out to find, but finding cool stuff along the way.
