create your own visited country map
I was reading Lara and Claire’s blog: trippingonwords. Its awesome, these two girls are traveling the world because they have nothing better to do, and they are hilarious! At the moment they’re climbing Mt Everest. Anyway, they had this cool map with all the places in the world they have traveled in so far… and of course, I thought, HEY, I want one of those!
Well, I feel like I’ve done a lot of traveling, but really, I was rather disappointed about the lack of red on my world map. As I was reading all of the countries listed, I was constantly thinking, oh, I haven’t actually been there, places like Thailand, Vietnam or Venezuela. I’ve visited 25 countries, which is 11% of the world. That’s the equivalent of only one biscuit in a whole pack/tray of TimTams!
Anyone up for adventure? (ps. the photo is of one of the hippy locals in Tairona, Colombia)
