I am married to the love of my life and am finally able to shower him with all of the attention he deserves. I am now retired and living the life here in Europe. I am an American, he is an Australian, and this is our second overseas address. The first was Shanghai, China and now Munich, Germany. Come along and live the life with us as we continue our adventure of discovering all Europe has to offer.

Thanks to Kelly Griego, guest post on "Inside the Loop," I have found myself spending way too much time discovering the excitement associated with Spherical Panoramas, or 360 degree imagery.  My favorite panorama was the Vatican.  You could save yourself thousands of dollars in airline and hotel fees and see the Vatican through this technology up close and personal.  Try it!  Just click on the link below the photo.


As exciting as this technology is, it barely touches the surface of what can be done now a days.  Here is where we are headed.  Watch Blaise Aguera y Arcas, the architect of Bing Maps at Microsoft, at the recent TED Conference.  The possibilities are endless!
