Google Maps – (some of) my places

April 25th, 2005

Although Austria hasn’t made it yet in to Google Maps (well, here is Vienna, Austria), there are some places in there that bear memories for me.

Like these:

  • My brother’s current location (he goes to Hockey School there!):
  • The house of my late grandmother
  • Long ago, I visited one of those lakes (can’t rememeber which)
  • And I suspect this to be a gas station I happen to know a funny story about (but won’t tell you)

I hope Europe will be added soon…

Note: Google Maps is perhaps the finest example of Ajax use on the web. It really shows what you can achieve. Look Ma, no proprietary plug-ins…
