A real life addition to one of my last posts

Recommended Posts

This time I was faster in the simulated flights than in real life. So I can only give you the additional proofs to the enclosed post now.

Here is the reference...

 

And here is the reality: On approach to Madrid Barajas...

... and visiting Toledo some minutes later. Mesh and vector data are ok, but the building charatcter is a clear deficite. Plus, that city has lots of POIs which would be nice in the sim, like the Puenta de San Martin or the Cathedral:

Perhaps an additional POIs would be the Alcazar.

or the Spanish Army Infantry School

Great shots, Arkanoid. Like some other spanish cities Toledo has enough attractions to justify a CityScene...

I just could not take many more pictures as it was too late after work and we had to decide on the restaurants ;D.

You are so right. We had to reduce to one Taverna and one restaurant each evening (plus the hacienda´s bar thereafter), and still the choice was too difficult.

Thank you Fred. Not such a long distance from Amsterdam, and direct flights, too. You may prepare a real life trip here and receive many travel tips?!

Great shots Gerold. Wonderful trip you've made there.

Thank you Karl. Unfortunately the on-board service was not always as good as with the Mule Team.

Hey Gerold. Do be aware that your RL travels and commentaries on your flights are very rewarding to those of us for whom travel is no longer possible. We perch on your shoulder and enjoy right along with you. Thanks so much for expanding the world a bit.

Another wonderful trip here Gerold.

It is easy for you to walk and eat at the same time to get us more splendid photos.:huh:

They do have McDonalds in Spain?:lol:

Thank you for your motivating comment Rodger. I like to give inspiration for both simmed and real exploration flights. Though it makes me a bit sad to realize some things will come to an end, someday, for everyone of us :unsure:.

If I can give you a pleasure, I´ll walk, drink, talk, fly and eat while taking photos. But never at a McDonalds!

Yes they have a McD just aside a Burger King at the Plaza de Zocodover in Toledo. The city is filled up with lots of cheap mass tourism, which made it so difficult to find good restaurants.
