Then drop the little man on the map as close to the pin as possible and spin around to see this.
If it’s cold and wet outside you can go to Petra, climb El Capitan in Yosemite, visit Venice and many other amazing places at Google Treks
Treks has a wealth of information, audio and visual to keep you interested. Google have so far covered Petra, Samburu, El CApitan Yosemite (AMAZING), Nepal, Gombe National Park, Pyramids of Giza, Angkor Wat, Colorado River, Churchill, Taj Mahal, Venice, Galapagos Islands, Eiffel Tower, Mt Fuji, Burj Khalifa, Iqaluit, Everest base camp, Grand Canyon, Great Barrier Reef, Amazon Basin, Kennedy Space Centre.
