I have just been spending an enjoyable hour remotely visiting Calgary.
I started out earlier in the week seeking out the best flickr photographs I could find, found a few nice blogs (not nearly as many as I had hoped) and added some great folk to my contacts. Aren’t tags great? Also tried finding blogs with Technorati and Del.Icio.Us but they were not quite as good. Livejournal was far too noisy with adolescent girls whining about their boyfriends.
Google Earth though, that kicks bottom. I have been wizzing up and down, zooming around, it is not quite like being there but still lots of fun. It makes a change to be looking at somewhere they actually have a decent resolution for.
If anyone has any recommendations for places, blogs or activities of the virtual tourism variety in the run up to our trip please do tell 🙂
I also think I found a couple of nice places to live, McKenzie Towne and Tuscony developments. We visited the former summer 2004, wish we had bought then as the prices have rocketed. Tuscony is near olympic ski park I think which would make it convenient for the boarding 😉
Ah well, back to grim british reality … for the moment
