    Google Street View explorers might have the best job in the world. 
    Thanks to Street View trekkers, us common folk get to experience the entire world without ever leaving our home.
    To highlight some of the treks, design firm B-Reel and Google teamed up to create a project that highlights these treks. Google Maps first started Street View as an experimental project back in 2007.
    Since then, it has expanded its program to allow third parties to apply to become a Trekker to help map the world.
    Thanks to Street View trekkers, Google has been able to capture imagery from locations on all seven continents.
    Here, we see a trekker hiking up the Grand Canyon.
