Googling and Wikipedia-ing the Ottaman Empire quickly led me to looking at maps of the world, which led me to Virtual Globe. It's quite a cool little tool actually. And after much spinning around and exploring and general looking, I've decided I'd like to live here ->
...for a while anyway. One day.
Looking at the globe made me realise just how little of this world I've actually seen. Sure, I've been to some major cities, but what about all the places in between? What about the forests and deserts that I havn't even glimpsed? The tiny remote villages and the valleys and mountains?
Makes you want to go exploring doesn't it? O.O
