Argentina & Antarctica - trip of a lifetime

Kelly and I have recently returned from what can only be described as the trip of a lifetime. Travelling with PONANT, a French cruising company, we had the opportunity to visit one of the remotest areas on earth, Antarctica and several other islands in that region. We sailed from Ushuaia commonly refered to as "The End of the World" to the Falkland Islands or Maldivas, then to South Georgia, Half Moon Island, Deception Bay, Brown Bluff (Antarctica) the Weddel Sea, the coldest sea on the planet and home to the massive Tabular Icebergs then back to Ushuaia. From there we went back to Buenos Aires and a week in that fantastic city.

Here is a little of what we experienced.

Photospheres in the new Google Maps - An Arthur Dent Moment

In researching how images and photospheres are uploaded in the new Google Maps I've had my own Arthur Dent, the long suffering human in Douglas Adam's Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, moment! My own locked filing cabinet comes from the demise of Google Map Views and it's integration into Google Maps. Maybe I should remember the cover of the book "Don't Panic".
