As a world traveler to over a dozen different countries and having now lived in 3 of those countries in my lifetime - I think that is much of where my love for world globes comes from. When I was a little girl I used to spin globes around and then point my finger to see where it would land and dream about going to that place one day. (I still have to mark Iceland off the list! ;) ) There's something old world about globes...something I definitely enjoy.
Here are others who share my appreciation for globes.
