When you're traveling, do you ever ask yourself where in the world you are? Have you ever tried to determine if you were really somewhere on Earth, or maybe on another planet or plane of existence? Do you think that your location is important and worth paying attention to? Well, the answer to those questions is yes.
If you're anything like us, you might even enjoy learning things about different parts of the world and comparing them to each other. Maybe it's because the knowledge can help you while travelling (and avoid certain situations, like when someone invites you to their home for a beer only to show up later at your hotel with a gun). Or perhaps it's because knowing about other countries can help you understand the people and their unique culture.
