Google Earth Network Links

A Google Earth network link is a placemark folder that automatically updates with the newest Google Sightseeing sights. All you have to do is load up the following KML files in your copy of Google Earth.

You can view hundreds of Google Sightseeing places across the globe by subscribing to the Full Network Link and to keep up with the latest finds on the site you can also subscribe to the Latest Posts Network Link.

The Google Sightseeing placemark icon was designed Adam Betts. Thanks!

Google Subscribed Links

Google’s “Subscribed Links” is a cool new feature for Google Search which, when you’re logged into your Google account, allows you to subscribe to dynamic search results from your favourite websites.

We’re created a Subscribed Links feed for Google Sightseeing, which will give you 3 recent posts any time you search for a country name. You can view example results and subscribe on our profile page.

Google Sightseeing Widget

If you’re running Tiger on your Mac then make sure your Dashboard has the Google Sightseeing widget – it can display either the 20 latest posts or comments (although you could of course have one widget for each if you like).

The Google Sightseeing widget was developed bu the nice guys at Colorworks.

Le Circuit de Reims-Gueux

First used in 1926, le Circuit de Reims-Gueux was a French Formula One and sports car racing circuit built on the public roads between the villages of Gueux and Thillois. The circuit hosted its first French Grand Prix in 1932 and continued to hold the event until 1966. The track closed for good in 1972, but the roads are still in place, and many traces of the old circuit can still be found, including the pit stalls, paddock, and spectator bleachers.
