GREAT BRITAIN Map
Another great Map Card for my collection (I really must start a list, I'm such a procrastinator) this time sent from England and picturing the British Islands that form the United Kingdom of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Thank you very much Ginte for choosing this one for me. This postcard took 9 days to arrive!
Great Britain, also known as Britain, is an island in the Atlantic Ocean, off the north-western coast of continental Europe. It is the ninth largest island in the world (the largest in Europe) and the third most populous island in the world. It is surrounded by over 1,000 smaller islands and islets. The island of Ireland lies to its west. Politically, Great Britain refers to the island together with a number of surrounding islands, which constitute the territory of England, Scotland and Wales.
