Give Us The World....

create your own visited country map or check our Venice travel guide
http://www.world66.com/ Such a fun site to visit! You can make a map of just the US showing the states you have visited, just Europe or, as I have here, the whole world! I made our map just like the one in our storage room...a world map with push pins to show which countries in which each member of the family has traveled. I know it looks like a lot but, as much of a travel hound as I am, a lot is never enough! Of course, being military helps quite a bit! What is the old saying? Join the military, see the world? Yup.... We have the entire US covered. I still need to get to Hawaii but Bill has been many times. Each time we plan a trip to our 50th state, something has happened to put that trip on the back burner. Someday... Now, do remember that this map is for ALL of my family! Many of these places Bill had been but not me! He is the one who has seen so much of the Middle East, Africa and South America. But hey, I got all those sweet goodies he brought back! Also, when you punch in North America, it colors in ALL of Canada. Now, I have seen a good bit of that great nation but certainly not all! Yes, I have been to most of the 50 states. My parents loved to travel and I went on quite a few Summer and Spring Break vacations. Also, many of my travels have been courtesy of old Uncle Sammy. Looking back now, it was often a rough go but I am so grateful we stuck it all out and I know how lucky I am to have seen so much of this country. It is a wondrous place filled magnificent people. Okay, before I start humming "America the Beautiful" I better head off to bed. Maybe I will dream of suitcases and airplanes and hotels and road maps and....

When I look at the map I realize just how many more places I have to visit. I love your pictures with 4 small pictures. Would you mind letting me know just how you do this. Thanks ...Sharon K

Wow!!! that is AMAZING!!! Have you seriously been to every state? that is so great!
I love to travel, so I'll have to do this too--but it will only make me wish I'd been to many more places!!

Loved to see your map. I saw one on another blog--yours is 'redder'! Hope you are having a great week!

dIf I was wealthy I would travel the world by boat, slowly.... spending weeks and weeks in each city, renting cottages at the end of village lanes and flats in big cities, and soaking up local flavor!

Thanks so much for posting pics of the bunnies. I am really glad you like them :-)

How wonderful that you've had the opportunity to see so many places! I want to go to Hawaii too!!!

Thanks for the link. This should be really fun. Each time we visit a new state, we stop at the visitor's center for a map. Then I take a yellow highlighter and mark each road we travel in that state. One day we'll have all 50 states marked up! When you put together your photo grids, how do you do that? Is there a certain program you like to use? You can e-mail me if you like: homesteading@comcast.net
Thanks!
