I’m well over a month into my epic trip now, and this just happens to be my 50th post on the blog, so in the interest of celebrating arbitrary milestones I thought I’d share something cool with you, loyal readers. I’m mostly using my iPhone to take pictures as I go, which has many disadvantages, but a point in its favour is that every time I take a picture, it puts a pin in the map where-ever I was at the time. This means I can look back and see pins in all the places I’ve been so far (click to enlarge):
As you can see, I’ve done a lot of zigzagging back and forth throughout the continent in order to see everything I wanted to see – this was kind of expected but also a consequence of not planning a set route in advance.
I realise this will be mundane for anyone with a smartphone or into technology, but I think it’s a really neat way of visualising where I’ve been. Where will the next pin be? I have no idea!
