I’m only sharing 3 Geography of Travel links because the month of August was a busy time for me! Even though I was furiously preparing for the upcoming AmeriCorps service year, I used up a lot of my left over vacation days, too. Some highlights: I spent a couple days in on the Outer Cape — Wellfleet, Truro & Provincetown, MA — and visited Nantucket for a long weekend. Oh, and I met Donavan Frankenreiter… If you DON’T know who that is, I feel sorry that you’ve been missing out. Look him up!
Here are my most interesting finds this month:
- Maphead by Ken Jennings – Ken Jennings appeared on 75 Jeopardy! episodes, winning the previous 74 consecutively and setting a record. He is a fellow geography nerd and map lover, and yes, I read this book. =)
- Ever think about what is directly across the ocean from you? Spain and Portugal are across the ocean from me here on Cape Cod. What is across from you?
- Bellerby & Co Globemakers. Their Instagram account (@globemakers) features photos of their remarkable globes and the talented artists creating them in action. They have a seriously cool job.
