    I Invented the Map

    Not many people know this, but I was Ferdinand Magellan's cartographer. He was drunk most of the time, and he would talk to his compass. I just laid low, as he had a bad temper, and just did my job...thanklessly...

    I Certainly Love Maps

    I use to use them daily as a patrol officer and later as a chauffeur. Was one of the first classes at my high school to take geography and did the ROTC mapping competitions back in the day   Yep great tools for everyday life

    I Also Love Maps

    I will pull out my world atlas and look at different countries and the names of their various cities and daydream about their culture and some of the people i know who are from there. Looking at maps always takes me on trips in my mind :) Maps are beautiful :)

    I Actually Have A High School Teacher To Thank...

    Lost Cause

    Have you ever noticed that maps have some of the most brilliant colors on them?   I have seen very few black and white maps.  I love maps and globes but unfortunately I can't read them.  I get lost a lot because if this.

    Maps. Fascinating things. Never really needed any, because for some reason, I always know where I'm going. I sometimes lose my way, but never direction. I never get lost, somehow. But I love maps. Like I said, fascinating stuff. Especially since the dawn of satellite photography...

    I Love Ordnance Survey Maps
