The United Kingdom stretches from floor to ceiling and beyond. Shrewsbury can be found just over the toilet paper roll. London barely squeaks in above the floor in the corner under the towel rack and to see Edinburgh you must stand with your head at the ceiling.
It has taken some getting used to, this bathroom papered in maps.
But, exiting the shower gives one lovely view of Alaska and while washing my hands I often think of my cousin living in British Columbia.
The walls are a bit “busy” but Finland can be perused in it’s entirety while brushing your teeth and what a treat to view the Alps every time you head out the door.
It took a few bathroom geography lessons with the girls before the maps really started to grow on me but now I’m convinced. The crazy, chaotic, map covered walls are here to stay.
So, if you ever need to know the bus Routes in Helsinki, give me a call. I’ll check the bathroom.
You know you’re in good company when even someone’s quirky bathroom makes you like them more! Mine’s retro purple and pink…which works with 4 girls, but not as interesting as maps!
Retro pink and purple sounds like something my girls would love!
Yes, it’s girly alright! 🙂
What a cool bathroom you have. That is genius decorating by your previous owners! Now if I went into your bathroom, I will probably stay there for an hour or so studying the maps 😀 Brilliant photo for this week’s challenge!
Thanks, I do wonder how then ended up with such a *giant* map of the UK but I’m glad they put it to such a fun use!
Wonderful bathroom, Jessie. I’d love to have one like this!
It’s pretty fun, though Russia’s getting a mildew problem I’m going to have to do something about…
Your daughters’ answers on their geography tests could be interesting. Variations on “Turkish Towels” — that sort of thing.
Jesse, this is a finish poem. Love it!!!! – Annette
Thanks Annette! (Umm, what’s a finish poem?)
I love that. Sure maybe it’s a tad quirky, but really what a great way for the children to be exposed to the world. I would love to know what’s rolling around in their minds as they see the different places from their perspectives. Besides I think it’s quite stylish.
They probably have a very skewed vision of how big the UK is. According to our bathroom it’s at least 10 times bigger than Russia!
