Google Street View now available in airports and train stations

The Street View team is now offering virtual tours to international airports and train stations. Google's mapping service expands coverage to include 16 international airports, more than 50 stations and subways, as well as a cable car station in Hong Kong.

We can now take a virtual tour of London Waterloo station; the terminals at the Tokyo International airport; stop by at the counters at the Barajas Airport in Madrid, and even get on a plane at the Dubai International Airport.

According to the official Street View blog post this is only the beginning and there are many more transport hubs to be included. The new feature can be useful for finding a specific place, or just to get a sense for the airport or station, which are part of our trip.

We all happened to look up at the sky and wonder where this plane is headed to.

British Airways and agencies OgilvyOne, Carat and Postercope with the Storm, the new digital application of Clear Channel UK, have found a way to use this for a clever advertising campaign. An advertising billboard, located at Picadilly Circus in London, detects the approaching aircraft, then the digital application receives flight information and ... see for yourself.

Greek Ionian Islands Sailing Trip - pictures

Eight days, eight islands, eight people, a couple of dolphins, and 300 nautical miles on a sailboat across the Ionian Sea - from Lefkada all the way down to Zakynthos. An amazing experience including incredible sights, beaches, villages & food. Definately a voyage to remember!

I highly recommend visiting the islands in May. It's all green, the weather is warm and sunny, and although the water is a bit under the perfect temperature, it's still good for a quick swim. Moreover, it's cheaper and crowd-free. Enjoy the pics! Ahoy!
