It’s well past time for a “Did you know?” post, so I tried to think of something I’d recently learned that I’d found interesting. And while this may be old knowledge to some a you, for me it’s all sparkly new and intriguing. So, now that I’ve given it a completely over the top build-up…
Did you know that in the past, people traveling across giant deserts, the Sahara for example, would use the stars to navigate much as the sea captains of old did? Now, I know you may be thinking, “Duh? North Star, Suza?” but seriously, I never really thought about the vastness of the sky in the desert, especially if the geography is flat enough or far enough.
The idea of being a ship afloat on the sands just sounded appealing to me. I don’t know why. Maybe I was feeling romantic or adventurous. Or both.
As for what I was doing when I pondered this idea…all I’ll say is…Drake is hot.
