We're just back from none of the places on these particular maps. We were in Umbria. Under the 38°C rays I had plenty of time to contemplate life, the universe and orange coloured drinks served with salty snacks. In that delightful and alien environment I had a thought: I'm going to start blogging again. Not that I'd actually, really, formally stopped. But I had drifted away, got side-lined, became distracted. By life and children and work.
We came back with a bunch of stuff worth capturing in the digital form so I'll get it up here over the next week or so.
These maps are from a German atlas, from 1958, that I picked up a little while back and have leafed through during occasional spare moments. I think the photos are a bit dodgy because I just used my phone but it's really the colours and diverse cartographic styles that interest me most and the images capture those details reasonably well.
