Sweden and some islands

with 15 comments

The lack of bloggy stuff last week just goes to show what happens when I have some work to do. Especially work that I’m enjoying doing. You’ll be seeing the fruits of my hard labour in a week or two.
But for now, an update of the FFF Pictorial Atlas. Today there’s stuff about Sweden, Åland, British Virgin Islands, Christmas Island, Falkland Islands and Nauru. That’s a lot of islands, I know.

  1. I like islands. If I was suddenly to become a multi-squillionnaire, I’d buy an island.

  2. Oh, and my Swedish friend liked the bit on them in your Pictorial Atlas!

  3. Ah if only Wales was an island…

  6. oooo I feel honoured. I actually do! And you spelled everything absolutely right! Though, Jenga? What in heaven’s name is that?

    But the history is pretty accurate. Loved it loved it loved it. ;)

  10. Isle of Man will be part of the Atlas, what with it not being part of the UK, rather a Crown dependency.
    The great thing about doing this stuff is I’m finding out so much cool information about various places, ie. I failed my Geography ‘A’ level.

  11. Will you also be doing the Channel Island bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey? I looked Crown Dependencies up on Wikipedia!

    Think of all the cows and tax dodgers you could do, not to mention Bergerac and Charlie Hungerford!

  12. Craig, may I suggest doing some research on Seborga.

    I bet you never heard of that country!!!

    (it has a minipop-worthy prince: Prince Giorgio I of Seborga!!!)

  13. CoCo: I will be doing those, yes. Anything that is like that gets included.
    Frans: No idea what the prince looks like, but I do know of Seborga. They’re on the list of things to do once I finish the proper nations (ambitious, I know), like ex-countries too, Yugoslavia and such. Maybe even fake countries like Florin and Guilder…

  15. Cool, how about adding the Hutt River Province to that list too. I went there when I was in Australia and met HRH Prince Leonard and Princess Shirley. I even got to sit in Princess Shirley’s throne!
