Google Earth allows us to explore the world around us in a way that used to be impossible. With the help of satellite imagery and aerial photographs taken by aircraft, Google created a gigantic and interactive map for us to play with. Exploring cities you’ve never visited is fun, but you can also use it to explore where you currently live (“Bob has a swimming pool?”)

The most entertaining part of all? Finding hidden secrets, all over the world.
