The idea of travelling around the world is one that catches the imagination of most people. Being able to visit and experience the lives and cultures of different countries will always leave a long lasting effect. As it stands right now I am unable to do this physically but as I sit in my office, looking at all these football shirts that I own from around the world, I had the idea of doing a virtual tour of the planet using the locations of the shirts that I own as reference points.
As it stands I currently own football shirts from 72 different countries, with every continent being represented. The majority of my collection is based in Europe but I have a diverse selection of shirts from other territories. Hopefully as I release this series I will be able to add more countries so I can truly claim to have a world wide collection.
The idea is to visit one or two countries each episode though it may be more depending on how many shirts I have in the respective countries that we will be visiting. I will carefully negotiate my way around the world, informing and showcasing the shirts that I own. Hopefully I can inform and entertain you with what I have to say about not only the shirts but the countries and football in general.
Below is an up to date Google Map which shows the locations of every single football shirt that I own. I have used the stadiums that they play at as the beacon just to make it balanced across the board. Looking at this you can see how far reaching my football shirt collection is and will have an idea of which countries we will be visiting as we travel.
