30 Day Blogging Challenge Day 28: Why I Love Geography

I have always liked travelling, and also knew that I liked geography from my studies at school. I decided to study it at university. I have a geography degree. Most people hate the subject, but what I really like about it is that it is a very diverse subject with lots of different areas to it. It is not just looking at places on a map. You can learn about how different people in different countries live , and also about their customs, and way of life. When I was at university, I also learnt about the differences in society, and what people see as  different. I really liked this subject, as I went through a lot of years feeling different because of my disabilities. I can remember my lecturer was very good at her classes and very patient . I also really liked tourism in the third  world, and studying poverty. These are important subjects to be interested in, as the world is such a dynamic place. In terms of physical geography, I really enjoyed learning about the formation of volcanoes, the ice ages, and the rainforests. Even now, I enjoy watching programmes about these kinds of things on TV.
