October and November got away from me. Or rather, I got away in October and November! I visited two new cities and two new countries. Two weeks away in two months in the middle of a very busy time at my day job left me with quite a bit of catch up work to do, both at work and here on the blog!
Geography of Travel – 10.15 thru 12.15
Here are my most interesting finds from around the internet the past few months:
- Here is a map of stereotypes and pop culture references.
- Matador is my go-to site for geography quizzes. Here’s a simple one to try out.
- I cannot wait for little Mack to get a little bit older so I can get her a subscription to Little Passports and we can play with maps together all day long!
- Some of these don’t even look real.
- Offline Google maps? Yes, please!
- Could you imagine New York City without a Central Park and a Westside and Eastside park instead?
- Wow. In the 1840s, it took over 150 days to get from New York City to China. Thank goodness for planes, trains, and automobiles.
- This is the hardest online geography quiz I have ever attempted. It’s all words, no pictures and you only have 7 minutes to answer 30 questions!
- These photos are the reason why I always choose a window seat.
