Day 8- Buy A World Map

#139- Buy a World Map

IMG_4889

I love to travel. I’ve been a few places. There are so many places that I still want to go.

When you’re 10 years old, visiting every place you want to go is still possible. Decades later, windows start closing. Now it’s time to pick and choose. Years are limited. Resources are limited. Good health isn’t a given. It’s time to narrow it down.

What MUST I see?

It changes from year to year. Italy is always on the list. I haven’t been there yet. But close seconds are Iceland, British Columbia, the South of France, Galapagos, Vietnam…

Oh boy, there are too many to mention.

I guess I still want to go everywhere.

For now I’m going to buy a map. I’m going to put it on my office wall and dream about the places to go next.

I love this slideshow by BBC, called 50 Reasons to Love the World. It is inspiring.

I have also read this essay dozens of times… I just love it.

Lastly, if you don’t know who Alastair Humphries is, listen to his TED talk now! He’s fantastic. I’m an avid fan. If you want to see the world, you’ll marvel at how he did it.

Here’s proof that my map is in the mail.
