I am thinking about starting this new series. For those who are not aware, my geography is bad, this was highlighted to me over the weekend, that despite knowing Vietnam is in Asia, roughly knowing where Asia was, I seem to think Vietnam is near Greenland. Hawaii is also not where I thought.
I seem to have the thing that everything is on the East Coast of America, apart from places like New York, which I had on the West. I shall let you guess where it is.
When I have done Skypy Friday’s I got teased for it, I know its shocking, I think part of it, is when I think of a world map, I don’t think of a globe, I think of it flat. This does not quite explain why Vietnam in my head is nowhere near where it actually is.
I have been saying, I should get a map and just place things where I think they should be and see how wrong I am.
Because I have some lovely friends over in Canada, I have been looking up the Canadian Map and got to know it fairly well, (Alaska was also on the wrong coast) I thought Canada would be a good place to start as I have recent knowledge of it.
I found a blank map of Canada, with what I thought the 10 provinces and 3 territories marked out. That would make 13 places I needed to find and try and name. I made it more difficult for myself by not having the names of any of them, other than through memory
I found 10, ok, with some I got a wee bit confused as to whether cities were a province, so just went where I thought people I know lived.
I might need to keep doing a bit more research on it. Turns out Prince Edward Island is just an island. Not a whole massive place.
Next time the 50 States of the USA, you might want to buckle in for this. (Especially cause I have only just found out there is 50 and not 52 States)
