Fascinating World

I am fascinated by many things, as this website is testament to, and one thing I’m particularly interested in is geography. Not geographic processes like glaciation, erosion, volcanic activity, that sort of thing (although they are interesting too), but finding out about different countries and places around the world. These aren’t travel guides, I’ve not been to many of these countries and that’s only going to increase as a I spread out from Europe and write about countries all round the world. Instead it is a mix of things – history, geography, folk tales, music, culture, food and more. From time to time I pick a random place in that country to write about, and try to find out what it’s life to live there. It’s amazing what you can find out from the internet.
