My first effort at planning a trip around the world at age 7.
I have no idea where this desire came from. We lived out on a farm in the middle of nowhere; until I was 5 we didn’t have a TV to project the world into our little home.
It might have been my mom’s friend Jacqui who traveled around the world sending us exotic postcards with exotic stamps.
She was also the one that sent me this world atlas and I painstakingly drew in a trip, starting in Victoria (the nearest airport) and then making my way around the globe by plane, train and boat.
Of course, once I started travelling I never stopped, but I see I still haven’t been to all the places listed on my first plan.
