Strange Maps is a wonderful blog for those of us who love maps. The reason I love maps is because I often get lost or at least, I worry a lot about getting lost.

I especially enjoyed reading about and seeing the road navigation device called the "Routefinder" used in England during the 1920s. Worn on the wrist, it contained little map scrolls showing travelers the roads they were traveling, gave them the mileage covered, and even told them to stop when they came to the end of their journey.

Other fascinating posts are: the genetic map of Europe, the world as seen from Paris, and a cheese map of Canada.
