Where in the world?

I came across my old Collins Essential World Atlas recently.  I've had it since I was in primary school - quite a few years ago now!


Love the colours.


Of course it is a bit out of date, but fascinating to look at all the Commonwealth countries and how they are all listed first in the Atlas with all the other countries coming afterwards.


It has some black and white photographs of the main Commonwealth capital cities.  Most of them will have changed a lot by now!  Here's London.


Hope you are having a lovely weekend wherever in the world you are.  Leave a comment and let me know where in the world you live.


Love, Liz

It is always interesting how publications put the country where you are as being the most important. I enjoy reading your blog, so Happy Sunday to you from Iowa in the middle of the United States.

I am right at the longitudinal centre of Canada. A place called La Broquerie, in the province of Manitoba. Originally from just outside Banff Alberta. Enjoyed looking at you list of countries.

Torbay, Devon, UK ... where right now it's lovely and sunny. I still have a child's atlas from the early 1950s, showing how to read an atlas, the very basics, from a house and then a house in a street, and then a bird's eye view of the house in a street, and then a small section shown as a map, so a child can understand what a map actually is.
I also have a lovely globe which my parents bought for me for my 8th birthday. I can't imagine a little girl wanting a globe for her birthday today, but I just loved it (and still do.)

I'm over in Norway and I love old atlases too. I see all these clever crafts to do with them, online, but simply can't bring myself to cut them up!
