When Nothing Becomes Something

Put me on a ride and take me all around the world and I will be as happy as if I really was there.
This is an amazing way to discover the world.
They have such a ride at Disneyland.
 It feels so real I could ride it all day except it takes you over the same places over and over again and you are really just sitting in one spot with people over you and below you.
However to fly over water like this, is indeed a thrill and it's so safe cause you actually are not going anywhere.
Can you imagine lying on a beach that looks so real with the smells and sounds and view and not be on a beach at all? Today they have holograms which make you truly believe in things until you try to touch them and they are not there.
Wow! Amazing technology.

Totally agree with you, I recall my first experience as a teenager in *cinema 2000* as it was called, I took a rollecoaster ride by watching a large 180 degree screen around me, showing a film as if I was on the ride. I loved it as made me feel like I realy was there - all without the danger and scare.;) This was almost 30 years ago, so I really can imagine what the technology can do 30 years from now.;)

I think pretty soon we will live in Star Trek Days Zuzana, when people can take a vacation in a room anywhere they want in the world.
I think that would be pretty neat.
A bit schizo ....but neat lol

That does sound amazing. I haven't been to Disneyland in almost 50 years and Disney world in 37 years!!
I'm sure they have changed dramatically!
About Jerusalem,on of the ladies at our church toured it years ago. She did a presentation on it and she did amazingly. Some very interesting stories. Love Di ♥

I remember how thrilling a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon was in Cinema 2000 a few years back. Come September I'm hoping to do it for real!

Diana - It must be amazing to walk where there is so much history. The only thing is they changed so much, built so much over everything that no one can see exactly how it all went down.

Akelamalu _ That would be awesome.

It's truly amazing what technology can do today ! You just can stay home and travel around the world like real !

Gattina - yes it is amazing.
If I didn;t see it for myself, I would never believe it.
If only they would fight wars like this. We would confuse so many people. Bring huge armies and yet not a single man to die. lol
