GLOBE – Marilyn Armstrong

FOWC with Fandango — Globe

As it happened, I recently bought a globe. It lights up from inside, so I also use it as a soft lamp om the side table. I also love hearing the name of a country and finding it on the globe.

Globes have a lot more information on them than the location and names of places. This one shows the path explorers used. Not just the explorers of the Americas, but those who explored Asia and Australia. Magellan’s journey is really interesting. It’s hard to believe that a small wooden ship took such an incredible journey.

Here’s my globe. Someday, I’d love to get a better one with raised areas for mountains. Preferably a real antique. This one is a fake antique.

China, East Asia, Australia, and New Zealand

Asia

The Americas

Mostly South America and a bit of North America

  1. I had a small, tin, world globe that was a piggy bank when I was a child. I bet I’ve still got it in a bin somewhere, full of things you don’t want to throw out, but which you don’t know what the hell you’ll ever do with them. O_o I always thought having one of those ‘secret bar’ globes that opened up to a selection of decanters and some fine crystal shot glasses would be cool. No room here though. And I don’t drink. Well I could always stock it with ginger ale, coca-cola and some other sparkling type beverages I guess! 🙂

  2. A long time ago, I made globes the subject of one of my Flashback Friday posts. One of those things that seemed to become obsolete in my lifetime. Every classroom had a globe when I was in school. Most kids today probably haven’t even seen one…

  3. It’s been years since I last had a globe, but after reading this, I’m thinking about getting one like yours that is lit from within so it glows.

  4. A division reward when I was working at SallieMae was a glass globe — unfortunately about 4″ in diameter, so a little too small to be useful, but one of my favorite “coffee table” decorations!

  5. We also have a globe, but ours features all the animals in their natural habitat.
