How To Use Google Earth to Armchair Travel

Posted by on February 18, 2020

For those who like travel, especially when they do not have the means or the mobility to do so may greatly enjoy a bit of armchair travel on Google Earth.

This travel enjoyment can be easily reached when there is access to a computer and internet as there is plenty to explore.

For starters, you can be reminded of the house, street, city, town or village you once upon a time used to live with just a few clicks.

Get Yourself Memory Psyched

Now don’t think or say: “That’s not for me, I’m too old for that, I can never learn this!”

You know the saying “Moses is OLD!” or “I have seen Adam”.

You may know the BIBLE STORIES by heart.
The latter may truly be so, I take your word for it!  

Teach Yourself a New Skill

The elderly have learned and taught themselves throughout their lives many new skills since hunting with a “Bow and Arrow” and clothing themselves with the hides of our animal friends of the wild.

As well in our time many elderly, women and men, have learned the skills to use a computer to their advantage, long before retirement.

Also keep in mind there is a saying “You are never too old to learn!”

Get Comfy and Relaxed

While sitting at ease in a comfortable chair or on a sofa keeping company with a grandchild, friend, relative, neighbour or a favorite pet resting at your feet, any elderly person may greatly enjoy frequent uses of their internet computer. The latter is money well-spent as it opens up a whole new world during any and every computer internet visit.

Explore Google Earth

There are endless places to explore on Google with many of them being well document and photographed.

A Final Word on Exploration

Being an elderly lady myself I will be flattered,if you leave us a comment and/or topic you would enjoy reading about.  As it’s always a pleasure to learn more and enrich ourselves. We may not be rich, however, we elderly can strife to take good care of our grey matter.

It really is very interesting to see how far all elderly in the whole wide world can click themselves into any culture, entertainment, hobby, religion, sports etc.

Try It and You May Like It

Says the canning feline in Dr. SEUSS stories enjoyed by young and old as the elderly love reading to their beloved grandchildren.

NOT TO FORGET it would be a lovely useful gift from SANTA or a BIRTHDAY or ANNIVERSARY gift from the whole family!

Your elderly relative will thank you from the bottom of her/his heart, each time while using it.

Give Your Blessings

When you feel lonely yourself, you only have to think about the elderly loved one sitting behind his/her computer and thanking you in his/her quiet way for the blessings you bestowed upon them.

I also urge everyone, young or old, to Google for more GOOD READS for the elderly as it is very useful for young and old to check out the many websites on the internet about the elderly.

Young or old one can never learn enough about each other!
Just recently I made note of the following website to read up on one of these days:
