Instagram: My Map of the Day

I started a Map of the Day a few weeks ago over on my Instagram (http://instagram.com/themapwanderer). Yes, I had to use THEmapwanderer because someone took mapwanderer (and doesn’t even post pictures on it!). Grrr.

Missed out on the #mapoftheday? Here they are!

(1) One of my first travel consulting projects was for friend’s trip to Denali National Park in Alaska. I requested more information from Alaska Tourism (for my own reference too) and of course there was a map inside!#mapoftheday

(2) Day 2 of #mapoftheday is also on Mother’s Day! My mom visited me when I was living in Europe last year and we did a trip to Italy. Here at the Vatican Museum, there was a photo gallery of maps and I was very excited! Happy Mother’s Day to the woman who has been my support thorough all my travels and all the other mothers out there!

(3) A cute map I got in Brighton from a bar..loved it because it has such cute drawings of the buildings so it was on my wall all year when I was living there. It’s not so accurate, but does the job. I even started writing in some of the places with special meaning.#mapoftheday

(5) Today’s #mapoftheday is from Vanuatu, an island nation in the South Pacific Ocean! I love hand drawn maps, so this was a fun one of the town of Luganville on Espiritu Santo (largest island in Vanuatu).

(7) And this map of Oxford concludes a week of #mapoftheday! Loved the old town feel of Oxford and especially getting to see the inspiration behind the Great Hall in Harry Potter in person. Happy Friday! =)
