I am the type of person that loves to learn. If I am sitting in a doctor's office, I will read the small pamphlets laying around. If I am at the bus station, I will read the billboards advertising all sorts of things. When I am home, it is not uncommon to find me online, probably learning something new! My cousin sent me an email the other day with a link that said click here for interesting world facts. It made me laugh because I had gotten her hooked on learning new and interesting things too, and we would often try to outdo each other with interesting links to fun facts.
When I went to the site that she sent me the address for, I was really interested after seeing the wide variety of facts that they have. Not only were there facts about the world, but there were interesting facts about science, nature, history, celebrities and so much more. Just looking at the link that she sent me was pretty cool, because it had fun things to learn about places that I already know about, like the United Kingdom and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The really interesting part was the facts that had to do with places that I have heard of but knew very little about. I could have went to so many sites and read about Sierra Leone and Ukraine, but those sites would not have had the really cool information that I learned about both of those places. I spent at least an hour just that first day, and it is still my favorite site to visit because I get to learn some really random things every time I am there. Though we do try to top each other, I think she has definitely beat me by giving me this site.
