Google sightseeing, now 50% more!

Are you kidding me?

Just when I thought my obsession with Google Maps had died down three things happen to me.

First, Google Maps has updated their satellite views to include other countries. This has allowed my favorite blog (Google Sightseeing) to branch away from the United States and Canada just as both countries were beginning to dry out.

Second, Google Maps has released a standalone satellite program called Google Earth. It looks pretty good, and I’m sure I’ll be downloading it to the chagrin of Kerrie and my friends. I’m addicted.

Third, Chris led me to two more sites: a Google Maps scavenger hunt at (which is awesome, and as their catchphrase says, it’s designed to be something “to waste more of your time on,”) and Google Globetrotting, which is almost like a Google Map landmark database.

I wonder how many more times I can type the word Google.

Wow. Please help me.
