'X' marks the spot ...

I'm all over the map this week. Seems I have the travel bug, but will have to wait a bit before a vacation.  Instead, I can dig through dozens upon dozens of maps that I've collected from near and far to visualize some great memories and plan new ones.

I fancy trekking across the globe, so a floor map seems to be an easy way to travel. Just think, if I drop something, that stain becomes a new landmark!

 

Paris, anyone? Or, maybe a coastal mural to set the tone.
