Google Street View has come a long way!

I often zoom out to the world map and just randomly drop the street view in different parts of the globe. It makes me excited for my next overseas trip. If you haven't used Google Maps Street view in awhile, you should check it. They have so much more global coverage now and once again it's mostly HD as well.

Drag the yellow person in the bottom right corner to any highlighted blue area on the World Map.

Absolutely, but I despise the new layout. I reverted back to the classic google maps because I found the new one very user unfriendly.

I've used Google Streetview many times but have yet to find myelf, I even went to the front of my house and tried to peak in but I must have been gone or in a different room that day. I did see my car in the parking lot at work using the satellite image and maybe I was in it at that particular moment.

What would be weird would be if you were to find yourself in a town that you hadn't ever been to.

I use it frequently. Mostly in the US, Canada and Russia.

But I'm interested in many cities, I sometimes for example look where C-D posters live, just to get an idea how it looks around there.
