The UK is the 15th happiest country in the world, according to an international report.

Afghanistan

Driving Directions Afghanistan

AFGHANISTAN is a landlocked republic in southern Asia. The greater part of the country is mountainous with a central mass of huge mountain ranges, the highest of which is the Hindu Kush. Many of the peaks rise to enormous heights, the greatest being Nowshak (7,845 meters or 24,557 feet) on the border with Pakistan. Glaciers and permanent snowfields cover the highest peaks. Routes through the mountains depend upon lower-lying passes such as the famous Khyber Pass in the east. Lower-lying areas are found only in the northwest, west, and south of Afghanistan, but much of this is arid or desert land as in the Registan Desert in the south.

Hitchhiker’s Guide Map to The Arab Spring

Ever heard of The Arab Spring? If yes, then you probably agree that it has to be one of the most powerful uprisings in recent years.

Having lasted for over 3 years, with almost the entirety of Northern Africa and the Middle East enveloped in the protest, the Arab Spring was no little affair. It all started with a blaze… literally – a man burnt himself to death. It didn’t get any less intense from there.

With such a dramatic event starting up the uprising and spreading over so many countries across the map, you can bet this was no half-hearted attempt at revolution that just died down without bringing about some sort of change or the other. In fact, you could even say the Uprising was largely successful for many countries.

Love Map of Europe 2015

Love. One word we hear over and over and over again, but remains rather hard to explain or define. After all, how could we define something so abstract? How can one explain something that expresses itself in so many different forms?

With love being such an abstract thing, as emotions usually are, you can bet that most people would have different ideas of what love is. And while there might be quite a several similarities, you can also bet there would be unique ideas and preferences as well. This funny map displays this rather perfectly.
