One thing I always regret is that I have not kept a good track on all my journeys. During my youth I traveled around most part of Europe, and in my 20′s I explored Asia and Northern Africa. But exactly when I visited Ukraine, and what month I was in Tadzhikistan I do not know.
This weekend my kids will make sure they will not have the same dilemma when they are grown-ups. I found a nice map over USA at Target for 5 dollars, and on it we will pin down notes with dates on for when we visited different places. I also bought a map over the world at Borders going out of business sale.
I know there are really good places to do this digitally, but I like the idea of my kids pinning this map. That will – I hope – keep up the excitement for future travels with mom and dad.
