A Salute to Magellan
I have found a new vice. Well, it’s not a bad vice, per se, just something that takes away from doing housework and other annoying things.
It’s ‘GeoGuessr‘ It drops you in five random places around the world, and you have to guess where you are. You can challenge someone else, to see who scores more points for getting the closest.
You can scout around the area, looking for hints in street signs, billboards, or whatever you can find. Sometimes you look at foliage to see if you can guess the area of hemisphere. Sometimes there aren’t any cars, but you can see what side of the road the signs are on to see if its a right-side or left-side drive. And if there are street signs, you can open a new window for Google Maps and get really specific to where to place the marker. The closest I’ve gotten is 0.0168 km. Heh.
I’m enjoying the heck out of it. But let me just say Australia has a whole lot of places where there are just miles and miles of miles and miles. It messes with my scores. Curse you, Australia!!! And oh, yeah, I’m getting way more familiar with Botswana than I ever thought I would.
Love this game!!!!
