When was the last time you looked at a world map?
For educational purposes? To pick your holiday destination?
To check out where your visitors on WordPress come from? 😉
Looking at one (right now), what’s the first thing you notice?
Even though Europe seem like very tiny part of the world, it’s the first thing that appeals to me.
The classy boot of Italy.
The snail shape of Finland.
The many island of Greece.
And what’s that large orange part in the top?
Greenland. Indeed, still belonging to Denmark.
I researched different maps on the internet and came across this one.
For any Americas/Canadians out there, is this the one used over there?
I counted The internet told me that there are 195 countries in the world.
It’s crazy to imagine that since the internet exists, this doesn’t seem as extreme.
Probably you have connected with at least 50% of these countries since you’re using WordPress!
I was born in Bosnia, then we moved to Croatia, then to Germany, then to Holland, then I decided to move to Denmark and then came back to where I currently life: Holland.
I’ll end this post by sharing a funny fact.
In Holland, common names wcould be:
Harm, Lies and Joke (the last two pronounced differently).
But it’s not remotely weird to some of the names I heard in former Yugoslavian countries:
Snezana (=snow white) and Jagoda (Strawberry)
Kim’s & Kanye’s baby name North West suddenly doesn’t sound as weird anymore 😉
Where are you from and can you share a funny fact about your state / country?
