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.
