I love looking at old maps and would like to live in the National Geographic archives when I retire. Could someone arrange that?
  1. Expedit unit doors I covered with decals I made from scanning my 1920s maps of the Arctic and Antarctic

  2. I love these maps so much! Especially that huge unexplored area.

  3. 1950s map of the South Pacific in the hallway

    I have been known to pause here regularly to look at all the tiny islands.
  4. How much do we all want to live on the Danger Islands?

  5. 1950s automobile map of North East Scotland in my bedroom

    I'm originally from a fishing village up on the coast, I went to university in Aberdeen and my parents both still live in the area. Now I live 5 hours away, so it's nice to remember.
  6. Railroad map of the continental United States above my bed
    Static
    I refer to this embarrassingly often as I know very little US geography.
  7. It also has the best logo. I want this on a t-shirt.

  8. It hasn't aged well, but I decoupaged a bookcase with transport maps when I was about 18 and thought it was super cool.

    My fox slippers are definitely super cool though.
  9. Not really a map, but this is a plan of my childhood home, drawn up by my dad when they moved in.

    I have so many happy memories of that house. It had battlements!
  10. And books, of course

    This is my favourite, full of illustrated maps. Everyone I've shown it to has been mesmerised.
  11. I only wish I had a globe 🌍
    But I want an old one and they're hard to find.
  12. Update: I found a globe!

    It's from 1997 so I'd still like an older one but I'm very happy to finally have one.
