Google Rail/Street View – or the never ending Deja-Vue
I love that the Swiss rail is embracing the new technology instead of demonizing it (like it was in Germany). I love StreetView to check out a neighbourhood before renting a place and get an idea how a certain area looks like before I book a vacation, but sometimes then when I get there I have a feeling of Deja-Vue. Have I’ve been here? Yes – virtually.
There is still a difference in experiencing the real thing – especially nature, but still sometimes I wonder if I should scale down on my peaking before travelling.
On the other side I’m deeply related to the Swiss Alps, because I grew up exactly next to them in the italian Alps and the Dolomites. Seeing them in Google Streetview makes me feel a little bit closer to home whenever I want.
