I’ve always been a fan of maps. The show you where you’ve been and where you’re going. And I love that maps are becoming an art form these days, and are able to share ideas and without necessarily be a literal translation of the place. A few years ago I took a map making workshop at MICA, where I made my own map of all the places I have been, and after Grace posted these fantastic Europa Touring maps by Jen and Omar of These Are Things yesterday, I’m itching to figure out a new, creative way to map my travels. Have you seen any interesting or inspiring maps lately?
P.S. Grace is running a contest through the end of the day today where you can win one of these beauties by leaving a travel story in the comments section of Design*Sponge!

This is one of my favorites:

I remember the mapmaking workshop fondly!
