Fifteenth & Sixteenth Things

I’m  a big fan of Google Earth and Google Maps having used both to plan driving/walking routes from home and to explore in advance places we expect to visit. The satellite pictures must be pretty ancient as the  University still has a Great Hall and we still appear to have the people carrier that trundled our 15 year old son and his rugby team all around Yorkshire. He’s 22 now.

The attractions search is a useful feature though it didn’t find our favourite curry house  in Elland – fortunately we already know how to get there. Google Rides was not accessible to me despite having JavaScript enabled and Google Transit was highly entertaining, proposing a 12 hour 27 minute coach trip via London if I decide to visit my mother 150 miles away in Worcestershire. Think I will stick to the old fashioned timetables. Or walk.

This is a map of where I grew up in the country:
