As a new VR photographer it is my aim to document as much of the town where i live and work, this is not for monetary gain but merely to bring the beauty of Sitges and Olivella to more people.

A 360 vr taken off the end of the breakwater in the beautiful village of Sitges, in Spain, this village once famed for its fishing is now a gay tourist spot just south of barcelona, within easy reach of the airport and with its own train station, famous for Carnival and its Fiesta Major in August. To the left of the breakwater is the sailing club and the main Sitges brachers, to the right is the famous old quarter leading down to San Sebastian and its quiet beautiful beach.

This is an overview of Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
