Everyone in Australia gets this. Born in Karlsruhe Germany but I grew up in Australia from 1956. We lived near the Port of Hamburg in Germany and one day my brother and I climbed onto a ship but got lost on the ship later that night when hunger started to rule ....I wont bore you with the details as we say here the rest is history and we ended up in Australia, only to be reunited with the family in 1956, an early start to my travelling adventures. I did a world trip in 2003 and many photos are listed here from that trip. As well as the Bonus trip I got from United Airlines for doing the world trip with them to any destination in the central pacific area. So I went to the Cook Islands. This place is a real paradise at the right time of the year. My email is The world trip included visiting the USA Germany Korea China Singapore.It was fabulous . I would do it all again if I had the money. There are pictures here from my house out the lounge room window at different times of the year. There are some autumn pics showing the colours around the Adelaide hills where I live. 2010 I ahd a quick triop to China as I had not had a holiday for 3 years. Most pics are mapped.

I cant see any statues near here.

if a site is blocked in mainland china, they have to use VPN to access it. some of VPN is free, but not stable.

Merci de la visite, Christos

How can the marker be beside a road and then you display a picture with the sea.... its needs to be relocated. I am going there Saturday I will let you know wher to place it correctly

Excllent picture. Now where is the place marker on the map,

Hello Vakararo, Its easy for you to say backward but which way is backwards in the picture. Looking at the piture face on and moving away from it? WHich direction as I am back home in Australia. Would you please use the suggested new loacation feature then you can place the marker in the right spot and I appreicate your accuracy and observation. I must get back to the Raro such an amazing nice place.

Nice capture! Beautiful shot!

Hi! Mr.Glider47: I have read your letter for me.I can’t understand why your friends in China have to load their photos through your ID in Panoramio or your Panoramio link.! I used to load my photos by click the words“load your photos”in any photos in Google Earth,Then two dialog boxes appear,I fill my email box and the password respectively in the dialog boxes.Click OK at last,I get into my link of panoramio.So I can load my photos. Regrettably, I and other people in Chinacan’t load photos for a long time ,and We can’t see the any photos in Goole Earth,The reason is that the links to the Panoramio or photos in Goole Earth have been cut off by Chinese Government
