Do you have a wandering eye?

Sometimes it feels like I’ve traveled extensively, but other times I feel like a stick in the mud.

I came across neat little site that displays my travels graphically. Douwe Osinga’s site has a neat little app that creates maps showing the places a person has visited in:

  • The world
  • The United States
  • India
  • Canada
  • Brazil

Here are the Canadian provinces I’ve visited.

Visited 6 provinces (46.1%)

I feel I should add that I passed through Manitoba and Saskatchewan just once, but have visited the other provinces multiple times.

Here  is my map of US states I’ve visited:

Visited 33 states (66%)

This may look impressive, but except for west coast states and the Great Lakes states, I’ve merely passed through or landed at an airport.

What about you?  Create your own visited map of The United States or Canada.

The African Queen in Outer Space

escapee smaller

Catt Sayer just wants to survive.  The working-class fugitive delivers military supplies on her decrepit airship, but her hard-won livelihood vanishes when invaders overrun Banff, her harsh moon. And now an idealistic, upper-class officer wants her to risk her life on a hopeless voyage to attack enemy headquarters – manned by 10,000 soldiers.

Edward Hoornaert’s romantic space opera, Escapee, continues the saga of the Dukelsky family (begun in The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station).  If you like The African Queen and the thrill of underdogs finding love while battling a hostile environment, you’ll love Escapee.

Don’t let this rousing adventure escape from you.



  1. Wow! You’ve traveled a lot 🙂

    1. It sometimes seems like it, but compared to my three sons, I’m a stay-at-home. Most of my travel was done by the time I was 30, and now I’m … ahem … a couple years older than that.

  2. I’ve traveled a good amount, but none of that has been in Canada! I need to do better about traveling on my own continent.

    1. A goodly part of my wandering about Canada has been to visit relatives. If yours isn’t one of those confused cross-border families that doesn’t know whether to celebrate on July 1 or July 4, you have a perfect excuse to have missed the Great White North.
