Google Maps Spills VIPs' Favorite Places Around The World (PHOTOS)

What if you Tony Wheeler, co-founder of the Lonely Planet travel guide series, could be your personal tour guide? What if Al Gore could show you his favorite places to enjoy nature? And wouldn't you like to know where Michelin-star-chef Ferran Adria likes to get a bite?

Thanks to a feature from Google Maps, you can explore these celebrities', and others', favorite spots around the world--interactively and in 3D.

Google asked over a dozen notable individuals, each legends in their fields (be it music, sports, cooking, or politics) to map some of their favorite places to Google Maps, along with a description of why they picked each spot.

Google explains the idea:
