The study of Geography is the cornerstone of travelers life, many years from now, I feel I will remember the many maps of my life. My first true experience of world Geography was when I make this map of a boat trip between Ecuador and Iquitos,, Peru.
I feel a special rush when I pull out a piece of paper, and with my pen slowly try to map out my next adventure, and truly encourage the world to allow their curiosity to thrive by becoming aware of Geography.
This coming week I will be chatting with Oxford Press, Atlas of the World editor Ben Keene about recent developments in the world of travel and geography. I will publish the audio recording of the conversation to help with Geography Awareness Week. GEOGRAPHY AWARENESS WEEK
