Traveling around using Google Street Maps is always an interesting experience and you don’t even need a car, plane, taxi, lodging or fuel. Not only can you look around in places you have never been before and possibly never will be, you never know what you will come across. From what appears to be UFO sightings to ghostly personages lurking in alleyways, bikini clad girls, places you may never dare drive thru on your own. It’s always a fun way to pass some time and discover something new!
