Sightseeing the Continents; the beauty of North America

exploring the world's best tourist spots on a Filipino style budget backpacking

Interesting Facts about the Continent of North America;
1. North America is the third largest continent in world, ranking just below Asia and Africa (which are the first and second largest continents, respectively).
2. The word “America” comes from the name of Italian explorer Amerigo Vespucci. He is the first person to have realized that the West Indies and Brazil are actually not connected to Asia but are part of another separate landmass of their own.
3. The name “America” used to refer to only South America alone. However, when the land mass of present North America were added to maps, most mapmakers opted to retain the original name.
4. North America is contained entirely within the Northern and Western Hemispheres.
5. North and South America are usually considered as subcontinents, while America is the larger continent of which these two are part of.
6. North America is bordered by three of the world’s largest oceans, namely the Atlantic, Arctic, and Pacific.
