What Columbus Thought The World Looked Like vs. How It Actually Looks

This is the world according to what Columbus thought, prompting his voyage. The Ocean is not nearly as big and Asia is directly across from Europe.

Unfold the map and you can see Columbus' Actual Voyage, with the Americas in between.

Can be refolded and unfolded as many times as you like to see the differences.


  1. I would love to have a link as to where I can find this map to print it out.

    1. I am sorry, but I don't remember where I actually got the map. I am sure that a printable world map can be found. I couldn't find one that actually had the part of the world I wanted, so I cut the map in half and then spliced them together to get the part of the oceans and continents I needed.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means so much.
