This requires you to have Google Earth on your computer, but it allows you to zoom in and see satellite views of many places right down to individual buildings and landmarks.

On our first extended trip, 2008-2009, we stuck mostly to the Southern Hemisphere. We set off on the bus from Providence, RI to New York for our first flight to Cape Town, South Africa. From there, we ended up signing on to an overland safari that began in Zambia and ended back in Cape Town. Our next destination was Australia, flying into Perth, and traveling by plane, car, train and campervan, covering a lot of ground before we moved on to New Zealand. Most of our time there was camping in a basic but comfortable campervan. Our flight from Auckland to Buenos Aires was a LONG one, and with all of the time changes we arrived earlier than we’d left! We explored Argentina and Chile before heading to Venezuela for a the holidays. After a couple of months, we traveled through Peru. Costa Rica was a bonus layover on the way back to New York.
