Well, this started out as a way that my wife could follow my lone progress in my little sports car from Birmingham UK to Orkney.

Been there, done that 2 day there, 13hour return trip.

So now follow me: an Englishman representing Americans and based in a French office near Paris. With an appartment in Versailles and trips back to the UK anything can happen and, frankly, I've no idea where this will lead!

OK, so you can do this using Google Earth, but my flight back to the UK flew from Orly to Coventry and flew over my work, my flat (marked with the subtle blue arrow) and Versailles Palace.

So I took some snaps.

Yeah, getting it installed was a real pain, but now it's there it's better than GPS! :)

That big blue arrow might help him find his way home, but it doesn't help him get to the ferry!!!!!! :-)

OK, good point well made....., but I only went 2 hours in a slightly wrong direction and I arrived only 1 hour later than I expected. Hurrah for Eurotunnel who just put me on the next train.

(It was a minor GPS programming error a couple of weeks ago. "Terminal Transmanche" is not the same as "Tunnel sous La Manche".) Doh!
