Three Spanish Ports via Google Earth

Hospital de Sant Pau, Barcelona, Spain

 We will be visiting three Spanish ports on our coming Transatlantic cruise; Malaga, Alacante and an overnight stop in Barcelona.  Here's a short 4 minute Google Earth tour I've prepared showing these ports.

Tour of Azores ports via Google Earth

The Azores islands are among the most beautiful places we've visited anywhere in the world.  They are green jewels floating in the middle of the Atlantic ocean.  We have two ports in the Azores in our upcoming transatlantic cruise on the ms Rotterdam; Horta on the island of Faial and Porta Delgada on São Miguel Island, the largest and most populous island in the archipelago.

I've prepared a quick 4 minute introduction to these islands and ports using Google Earth Pro.

Google Earth Pro became a free download last year and I use it extensively in preparing my lectures.  A very handy tool if you want to include maps and satellite photos in your own presentations!
