Random touring

This is a thing you could do. Go to the MapCrunch site, select a country, and hit GO. It’ll find you a Google StreetView scrollable image from a random location in that country. Hit it a few times and, as it whisks you from one side of the region to the next, you’ll be getting an increasingly representative sample of what life in that place is like – rather than just images of the highlights, the best touristy spots. Back alleys in Japan, waterfalls alongside roads in Norway, long, cloud-bound bridges in Macau and, apparently, snowy trails in Antarctica. WITH PENGUINS.

There are some awesome aspects of living in the 21st century, and this sort of technology is one of them.

  1. Damn you, Jeremy!
    You’ve just guaranteed a wasted afternoon for me.

    Hmmm, I wonder how many times I have to hit ‘random’ before I see my house?

    Cheers
