Visited countries map

Posted by jerry on February 22nd, 2007 — Posted in Journal, Travel

Here’s a great way to share your travels – create your own visited countries map. I was amazed when I thought back to the places I have visited over the years, to find that I’ve actually visited quite a few countries (16) coverin 7 percent of the globe – mostly during my studies, some holiday and some business travel. But the map is of course only one representation of place – in most of these countries I have only visited one or two cities, rather than the whole country as the map might imply. So the big blob of China, for instance is there, but I have only visited Beijing in that country – as part of a tour with the band.

create your own visited countries map or vertaling Duits Nederlands

If you follow the links above you can also create a visited states map of the USA – something I hope Sharon will do when she heads over there next year 🙂

Thanks to Thomas McEldowney’s blog for this link

Happy birthday!

The map link is still working on my machine – it is set up to open in a new window, so you may need to turn off the pop-up protection in your browser

Cheers

Yup – there’s whole lot more of the world out there 🙂 And I thought you’d seen more of it than me!
