I’ve always loved maps. Growing up, I’d pour through the maps in my history books. As an adult, I still love maps, especially the trend in mapping not as a science but as an art. And today, I do Google maps, like the one above, when we take trips – as a way to remember where we visited, what we ate, and where we just sat and enjoyed the scenery.
One of my favorite travel mapping artists is John S. Dykes, you can check out his map gallery here, with his Paris map being my favorite. I love how he mixes fictional characters, authors and well-known sights in a pleasing, neutral palette while still incorporating France’s national colors.
