This is a big planet we live on. I’ve only seen a little bit of it. These maps make that pretty obvious.
When I sat down and wrote down the big themes of my life, travel is one of them. I love seeing new places, meeting interesting people, eating unusual foods, etc.
Then why haven’t I been traveling? It’s because I don’t always focus on those big themes. Daily life intercedes. I focus on what seems to be urgent, what’s right in front of me, not far away. It’s not so much making excuses, but just forgetting … “You can’t see the forest for the trees.” So it’s good every once in a while to review your list of themes to see what important things you have been missing.
But I’ll blog about creating that list later. Right now, you can get your travel daydreams going by making your own visited country maps at World66.
