5 December 18: Let’s play the globe game

Good morning, folks.

Have you ever owned a globe? My family had one when I was a kid and I used to spin it hard and stop it with my finger to indicate where, in my mind’s eye, I planned to travel next (often it was the middle of the vast turquoise sea so I spun again). I’d examine the teeny-tiny writing (life wasn’t such an eye test back then 👀) and was thrilled to land on South America (especially Peru, the land of my dreams) and Riyadh (which was always a staggering 40 degrees Celsius or more in the weather column of my mum’s newspaper. ‘Where IS this place?!’ I thought before I randomly found out). Did you ever play spin the globe? What’s the best place you ‘travelled’ to?
