My Google earth tour - A new start



So I resume my Google earth tour after a year of procrastination. Why this procrastination?
I do not know. I only know that I wanted prepare this trip as a real expedition, I wanted also to do some research before, read the stories of the great travelers, etc..



So today I decided to take matters in hand, and I make no secret that I feel a true excitement, worse, I get stage fright. I open up Google earth, and the first thing I notice is that it has changed, there are plenty of new gadgets. Among the gadgets there including a flight simulator.



I will not use this simulator, I prefer to continue the levitation, close to what could feel a wild goose. I was at about hundred and sixtieth minute, I think. And I am already starting to fly over vast and beautiful spots of a beautiful blue-purple.



One hundred sixty-one minute and thirty seconds. The screen is divided into two-thirds of sea and a third of sky. I'm between Canada and the Greenland, and I headed the point where I should be now if I had not took the wrong direction last time. I fly at an altitude of one thousand forty-seven meters.



One hundred sixty-fourth minute, I see white shores, it must be the Greenland.
I will stop here for today.

Great! You have resumed your journey!

Momo said...

Yes, Doreus, and about time too !

krn said...

I am curious to know how you are going to know that you arrived in line of your first trajectory.

Momo said...

Good question, my dear krn.

J'ai mon idée.

How are you ?

krn said...

I feel like having a pressure cooker instead of the head and I fall asleep as soon as I sit, I suppose that it's normal way for fever to attack.
I should have abused of yogi's tea...

I imagine that you have an idea to resolve this thorny problem of line. Trigonometry? Geometry? I wait impatiently.
I believe that it becomes my main centre of interest.

krn said...

The indicated minutes are those whom you effectively spent either they are virtual minutes ?

Momo said...

I have an idea, krn, indeed.

Regarding the temporal information, I have a stopwatch, it isn't virtual. I don't know if I have to continue give this kind of information.

I've a little cough too, but I will go swim all the same.

Momo said...

I wanted thank to you, knr, to accompany me in this lonely adventure, I feel less alone with your presence. And you help me to reflect.

:-*

krn said...

The important when bathing is of no no not to be cold by coming out of water, you do as you feel it and it will be good.

I think that the information about the time is not essentiel. It is a mark for you, that's all.

I am very sensitive to your thanks. I promises you (one more time !) to come to see regularly because the follow-up of comments by e-mail does not work very well.

doreus said...

Actually, Momo, if the trajectory on the map is correct, and if the white shores you see are straight ahead, what you are looking at is Ellesmere Island, which is part of Canada.

krn said...

Then, Doréus, we can say that Canada and Denmark are nearby ?

krn said...

Momo, don't you dream about a bath in the north pole ?

There are however two inconveniences, It is necessary to make a hole in two metres of ice and there is no socket for a hair-dryer.

Momo said...

Whouahahahaha ! Krn, luckily you exist, otherwise the life would be too much sad.

Thank you, Doreus, I'll correct it.

krn said...

If I can make you laugh, it's already a big power.

krn said...

Momo, do you know that we celebrate this year the fortieth birthday of the strawberry candy tagada ?

Momo said...

Fortieth birthday ? That's a venerable age... Damned... but this is my age !!!!

Momo said...

I never tasted the Tagada. It's good ?

krn said...

Hem... not so good. They are made of synthetic strawberry.
Smarties are better.

No, it is not venerable, it is still young, and I can say it is the best moment of the life. I enjoyed it very much.

krn said...

I would like to tempt an experiment of revitalization.

I need to find again this life which smiled to me.

Momo said...

krn, did you have panic attacs at 40 years ?

Momo said...

Yes, krn, I think you have very good vibrations tonight :-)

krn said...

No, Momo, when I was forty, I was the happiest person of the world.

I had health, money, time, beauty and friends.
You are right, Momo, I feel good. This evening I am full of hope. I have the sensation that the way which leads to the freedom exists and that I can find it.

Momo said...

You are lucky, krn. I began to have panic attacks at 23 years. My life changed a lot because of that.

I'm happy that you feel good, keep going !

doreus said...

When I was young, we had a version of the Tagada strawberries being sold here. However, they have been made in North America for much longer than 40 years... they existed when my mother was a child! I used to be really fond of them as a child. Now, I just find them artificially sweet.

I really had a laugh at the image of someone bathing at the North Pole and lacking a hair dryer...

krn said...

Momo, I would like to share my optimism and my hope with you.

I send you all the love that I can give. Receive it as the present of a real friend.

I think of using several ways to go out of this "jail", I'll share my experiments with you. Take my hand, we shall find the way together. Do you trust me ?

I wrote the first article of a series on the energy It will be on the "défouloir" to morrow.

Momo said...

Children have wrong. They are attracted by ugly and sugared things. I was attracted by sugar, chewing-gum, chocolats, mangas and, the worst, I was fan of "For your eyes only" (James bond). Beurk ! What a horror !

Momo said...

Yes, I trust you, krn. I'll wait for your article came out.

Good night krn.

krn said...

Yes, all these things which I knew only laterand which did not attract me. I had been bitten by the nature and I have never received better since.

Thank you for your words and your kindness. Good night Momo.
;-)

Jigé said...

Salut ami helvétque
C’est en faisant une recherche par centre d’intérêt (philo) que j’ai atterri ici.

En plus de l'anglais, tu dois être incollable en géographie maintenant. Ta méthode de recherches semble méthodique, y pas à dire. Comme Québécois, môa être entouré d'anglophones, alors c'est le français qui est important.

NOTE. La philosophie pose la question: «qui suis-je?» et la réponse est si importante que j’ai voulu y consacrer mon blog, qui parle donc de la connaissance de soi. Si le coeur t'en dit, tu es bienvenu.

Momo said...

Bienvenue Gijé !

Je suis très honoré de ta visite.

Oui, restons en contact.

Bien à toi.
