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. This is what this section of the website is about. Below are links to articles on different countries I’ve done – most of them currently are European countries, as I started out just doing Europe, but I’m now starting to branch out into other countries
