World Map

This map keeps track of all places in the world that members of our family (be it as a family, or individually) graced with their presence during our lifetimes. The initial display is centered on Europe, but other parts of the world are also annotated. Clicking on a country, wherever available, or on a location target will bring you to the list of places visited within that country (see legend below for pictorial definitions). Further links to feature articles within this digital Travelog are provided at the location listing, wherever such articles exist.

Since this online map started as the digital representation of the physical 1:6,200,000 map of Europe on which we long charted our travels, several conventions in “pin placement” are followed herein:

  1. Every city, town and settlement (and, in one case, a point of interest) that appeared directly on the physical map is marked with its own “pin”. This helps to explain some of the more obscure locations that could never be considered “destinations” on their own.
  2. A smaller town may still have its own “pin”, as long as it was an explicit destination for us.
  3. A region centered on a town that is marked on the physical map has that town as the entry, with the other nearby destinations mentioned in parenthesis.
  4. A region that was a target for a trip, where no town that we visited appeared on the physical map, has a region “pin”.
