The title of this post sounds boring, right? Right. But it's not! It's super cool and I'm excited about it. Back in 2010, my Grandma passed away, and some of her things were distributed among the family to sort etc etc (my Grandfather's not so great at sorting and organising), and since we were heading to England at the end of that year, we didn't get a pile to go through. Remember that trip down south I took earlier in the year? One of the main reasons for going down was to pick up a whole lot things that belonged to my grandma, from my aunt. In amongst the things that we discovered was this great bunch of National Geographic maps and charts. Woo! Apparently Grandma used to save them (I remember their house always having hundreds of National Geographic magazines), and they were all in nice sections in a tomato chutney sauce box, labelled 'MAPS'.
There are some super neat maps, charts and information-filled poster-like things in there, so I thought I'd just show you some of the things that I've found in there.
One day, when I have my own house, I'm totally hanging some of these up! They're so neat, especially the large world and country maps.
|This is only a small selection, to show you what kinds of things were in there. There about 6 times this amount!|
