When I was younger my dad was in the military and we were stationed in Germany. I knew I was born in the USA and we used to live there, and my parents would talk about living back in the states. Having no understanding of geography, I always thought the moon was the other half of the earth, the half with the United States and airplanes took you back and forth.

When I was in elementary school I thought maps were like real-time images of the world (like google earth only in real time). So when we were learning about war in a country looking at a map, I thought that if a bomb went off in that country, we would see an explosion image on the map!

When my sixth grade class finally finished memorizing all the countries in the world, I raised my hand to ask where I could find "Orientar." My teacher was confused, until I sang the song... "We three kings from Orientar, bearing gifts we've traveled so far!" I really thought it was a place.

I used to belive that no one but Aussies & people from New Zealand had ever heard of New Zealand, like it was too small & insignifiant for anyone to have ever heard of it.

When I was younger, I thought that a globe wasn't just a small model of the world, but an ACTUAL little world. Like I thought that tiny little people lived inside of it and just did the same things that we did, just at a microscopic level.

I used to think that people on the East Coast or other parts of the US had never heard of California. I was duly impressed when my cousins had heard of the state that I lived in. XD

Until i was about 13 I thought that we lived inside the world instead of on top of it. I thought I could see the domed shape (horizon on left, sky above, horizon on right) and that aeroplanes and rockets had to break through it to fly in space.
I also wondered why people in australia didn't get dizzy from hanging upside down all day.

When I was child, my mother used to take my brother and me to the doctor in Caracas. I used to believe that Caracas was another country. I didn't know that Caracas was a city.
