I don't get anything

It loads and loads and finally finishes and I get -- nothing. Just a blank page??

Maybe it's me, but navigating seems to go slow and then too fast. It just made me dizzy. Also, there's a smallish Google ad that is distracting and at times covers up the zoom in-out scale.

Works now for me. Have no idea why it would not load earlier. Is a puzzlement.

My brother sent this to me earlier today and I found my flat from my university semester in London (and the cafe we used to go to). Made me happy and sad all at the same time. Such cool technology.

I am in the midst of planning next year's excursion and had been contemplating dropping a return to London from the itinerary in lieu of spending more time in France. It looked at this and came to my senses.

The google ad will close if you click on the x.

I felt a little like Wendy Darling.

Works for me now -- sort of. Looks amazing but the navigation is really difficult. Maybe its a mac/firefox thing?

I'll try it later on my Mom's pc.

For me, there was no x to close the google ad. Maybe I should look at the link again, although I agree with janisj that the navigation wasn't easy enough to make me want to play with it much.

For whatever it's worth, it works fine for me on Google Chrome and with Firefox (on both Mac and Linux). And the navigation was fine. A little too fine, as it kept me up entirely too long past my bedtime. I don't have the option to close the Google ad, though, and it does take a little bit to load.

stokebailey, love the Wendy Darling reference!
