Place names have always fascinated me.

The internet has made the world a smaller place.
Visitors to my blog come from all over the world.

Some of this week's place names sound wonderful and interesting.
Say them out loud, some ordinary, some exotic.

Some hold a part of my personal history.

What's your favorite location in this world?
