A Map-lover Illustrated for Us How Big America Is, and It’s Mind-blowing

A lot of people find difficulties reading a physical map. Indeed they can be a little bit confusing, especially when it comes to comparing sizes. Since the earth is spherical there’s no unified method for projection. However, the most common one so far we recognize is the Mercator projection, suggested by geographer and cartographer Gerardus Mercator in 1569.

In comparison to people who have trouble reading maps, Mkyner is a map lover who decided to compare the sizes od various countries to the United States of America by creating a series of overlapping maps.

Looking at the maps, you’ll realize just how big the USA is – after all, it’s even bigger than Australia!

Travel Syndrome- Expectations Vs Reality of Vacation Destinations

It happens a lot when we see a picture of a certain place as a tourist we get to look at the best pictures. But soon as we go there the expectations tend to disappoint us. Crowded places, trashes everywhere, overall not the enjoyable experience we wish to have.
However, The syndrome of romanticizing places has come due to a very range of marketing of tourism. We tend to go to the places we find super romantic so we can be fulfilled and content with our trip.
Rather than that this also shows how misleading photography can be. A lot of people may be left disappointed when they meet the harsh reality of these places.

For example, everyone I bet would be expecting a very nice to the heart of the ancient trip to Egypt but instead, they would be waiting in long lines with very hot sunny weather above their head. Or visiting the great wall of china, a moment of wandering meditation up to grandeur wall but in reality, you have to squeeze to pass through all those people.”

But hey! Don’t be hopeless sometimes these places can be less crowded and stiff if you look at the “flux map” during the seasons. Is better to target the times when fewer tourist may visit the certain place.
And always be prepared for some letdown just in case your expectations were too high. Otherwise, just try to enjoy the best out of a place.
