    Armchair Travels

    From the description: "A day in Venice (Venezia) in Italy, from daybreak to sunset in time lapse". Gorgeous!

    Periodically I catch Rick Steves' travel program on PBS and his visit to Venice was my favorite last year. I don't know if it was his favorite but it was mine!

    Since I post a lot of travel videos, I'm going to start putting them all under this one thread. It's sort of my own internet "armchair" venture!

    I was fortunate enough to visit Venice and it's a favourite city of mine after the "big three" ... New York, London & Paris.

    That's the best thing I've experienced all week. Thanks for posting that (and I stole it to share on FB.)

    I'm glad Venice was enjoyed so much!

    This time lapse of the sky from Mount Everest is spectacular. The photographer wrote about his experiences while climbing to the summit and it's amazing to me that with all of the extreme physical stresses put on the body during the journey that anyone manages to make it to the top. Here's his write-up ~~~~~> Into the death zone - Life and death on Mt. Everest - Elia Saikaly | Elia Saikaly

    A fun time-lapse video of Amsterdam:



    The swans at the end are a nice finishing touch!

    I think this South American island of birds is a place you would either love or hate, depending on your tolerance for noise and/or guano. Don't go after a viewing of Hitchcock's "The Birds"!
