  2. Anyone that loves this sort of architecture will like it. I just wanted to fly slower. I got dizzy. :-) I wanted stop to look at buildings I liked.

  6. Thanks for posting Catherine, I thoroughly enjoyed it! I passed it on to my Husband who loves London history and he enjoyed it as well. So clever and very interesting to read the blog too.

  7. I am glad you like it Fi. It would be such fun to be able to see places like they were. Not to mention fly.

  8. When I see these sorts of houses I can't help thinking of York. A lot of the buildings from the 17c onwards still exist and it's amazing to see. I would love to be able to experience living in those times...but with hot running water and a flushing toilet =0/ Thanks for posting =0)

  9. Beautiful. There are traces of old London if you know where to look, but sadly, few half-timbered buildings have survived.

  10. What a great find, it was a lovely flight there, but it also went a bit too quick for me. I really wanted to see the houses/city better and unfortunately that was not possible, but it is a great video. Thank you for sharing, Catherine!

  11. Cela peut donner de très bonnes idée en miniature mais je trouve les images trop "virtuelles" comme dans un jeu vidéo .Il y a quelques semaines , j'ai regardé un film "Oliver twist" et l'on voyait le vieux Londres et cela donnait de trèssbelles images du vieux Londres avec ses ruelles sales sombres et les maison en colombages. J'espère que tu me comprendras avec ton traducteur .Bonne nuit

  13. It's amazing how virtual reality (and the genius of man) (and imagination) will allow us to travel through time and space.

  14. Wow, that's amazing, what a talented team! I like the little details of the flies and the falling leaves - and I'm really glad to have been able to see it but not smell it (if you know what I mean!).

  15. I love this little video! and I really like the melodious background music very Celtic sounding! I used to have 'flying' dreams so this arial adventure reminded me of when I have my 'Superpowers' when I'm asleep! :D
    Love the building details!
