World Map


This map keeps track of all places in the world that members of our family (be it as a family, or individually) visited during our lifetimes. Clicking on a marker will bring you to the respective country list of all available guides and individual visited cities, towns, villages, or sometimes standalone points of interest.

These markers denote places in the listings where no sightseeing occurred:
 Overnight stop on a road trip
 Pass-through drive with minimal stops
 Resort stay
 Skiing resort visit or stay
 Camping stay

Additionally, denotes a few places that we then or now called home.
