An interesting map, used with permission, from an interesting web site, jakubmarian.com. It’s full of this kind of stuff.
Another interesting site for cartophiles is A Map A Day, on Instagram.
Updating your countries visited map shows the areas you need to work on. Pretty clearly, we need to bear down on the area from Africa to the ‘Stans.

Just about time to get the show on the road. We’re a couple weeks away from one last reporting trip to maritime Canada, Iceland, and Greenland ahead of my next book, due at the end of the summer, about travel in the far north. This time we’ll visit St. Pierre et Miquelon, a French territory (passports, Euros) that’s line-of-sight with Newfoundland. We’ll take a spin around Newfoundland and a little bit beyond, to the northern tip and Quirpon Island, and visiting L’Anse aux Meadows, a wintering spot for Norse explorers several hundred years before Columbus. We’ll spend some time on the east coast of Greenland to complement our previous trip the west coast, and we’ll fill in a couple of blanks on our fourth trip to Iceland. Coverage here starting soon.
I like this map a lot, from the web site howmuch.net.
