Road Trip Map

A fun way to keep track of your travels is to highlight a physical road map. It adds an extra dimension beyond push-pins in "cities visited." Some countries have vast open spaces, and you saw a lot of terrain between those cities. I keep an updated USA and Canadian atlas, with a lot more detail than this example, and I have updated maps for several other countries. I just wish there was an electronic version available on the Internet. If there is - point me to it! But there is something to be said for an honest-to-goodness folded map with worn edges. It's an emotional connection my GPS can never replace.
