Alaska is Where?

I am so glad that I used a globe to verify that Alaska was NOT just a little south of California.

Maps like the following tend to baffle the geographically challenged.


Wow.

Alaska isn't next to Mexico?

I would have been totally out of place if I visited Anchorage's Kincaid Beach sporting a speedo and lots of sunscreen.

Ok, out of place for more reasons than one...

Thanks for indulging me with my attempt at humor as snow and cold this week have put me behind on everything. 

I hope to play catch-up this weekend.

You're lucky. Most people put Cuba in Europe or Asia. :-) I mean Alaska, even the name sounds cold! :-)

Greetings from London.

Um.....I think cabin fever may have taken its toll on you, my friend. Forget Alaska and head for the Caribbean!

Lydia Kang said...

You mean Alaska and Hawaii aren't right next to each other? LOL

I work in international brokerage and part of my job depends on me knowing where everything is...and explaining to our US customers that Alaska and Hawaii are NOT international!

I don't care what they call it, I'd like to be that far south right now.

Momma Fargo said...

Haha. For sure. In fact, the word "beach" to me signifies hot fun in the sun. Too bad I was not a dictionary queen because I would have had a reality check there in Wyoming as well. In the winter it is FROZEN TUNDRA...no beaching at all. Maybe you get lucky in July.

Lol. We do not learn geography here in america. When my sister came home the other day saying all of the countries in Europe and where they are, I was amazed. She is older but still I don't know much about the US and here she is knowing all of Europe.

I guess at least they put it on the map! In Australia Tasmanians are always getting upset because nobody includes them in pictures of the country!

I must tell you, this is very funny to me since I worked as a travel agent for 18 years and spent a good amount of time educating folks about points on the globe!
Often, I would have to SHOW customers how far away Alaska truly was...they thought that if they got out to the west coast, they could just drive there very quickly!
