I love maps. Maps serve so many purposes, and not only for guidance when you’re lost. They can also be used to bring back memories or allow you to dream about what a place may be like. By just glancing at a world map, I may immediately remember taking early morning walks through Old Town in Prague. With just a small movement of the eye, images may come back to me of snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. A bit more roaming, and I focus in on Mumbai. I’ve never been and can only imagine what it’s like to wander the streets and pop into a random restaurant and try a dish I’ve never heard of. Then I wonder what it’s like to walk through a small village in Kenya. What do houses look like? How do people react to your presence? How does it FEEL to be there?
I began wondering what would be the best way to share my love of maps and include my own personal spin. Then I thought of this. Above, you see a world map with several countries highlighted. I have physically been to all of those countries that are highlighted. If you click on the country, you’ll be taken to a specific page for that country including another map, details about my experiences, and country-specific travel tips for the frugal traveler. Click on a dot on the map, and up will come a picture I took in that specific location.
So with a few clicks, you’ll find specific frugal travel tips, learn what there is to do, and also get a glimpse of the visual beauty of these places. Enjoy!
