Around the Corner

There are many things you can find just around the corner. This website focuses on the term "around the corner" or "round the corner" and many serious, funny or therwise interesting things, persons and facts in it's surroundings and neighbourhood. Where do you find it in literature, what can literally be found round the corner, how to find a hairdresser nearby and ... other web sites, that target this term.

On this web site "around the corner" means two different things:

  1. (stuff) not far away; nearby things, shops, services, web sites - this is the bussiness part
  2. thinking a little bit around the corner instead of linearly - this is the fun part
We'll concentrate on these two meanings, more may be introduced later.
