Travelvice Craig’s joke:

This got a chuckle out of me.

I suppose ol’ Craigy is correct in asserting that the inclusion of two maps and text that tell of my location is a little redundant. So I will now draw out my planned route with distance markers on the regional thumbnails – so that with a single click readers can see where I am and where I am planning on going. Even though I am getting picked on for this, I still hold strong to my theory that it is good to have regional maps within each entry so that it is completely transparent where they are written from.

95% of the place names on the planet have no meaning to 99% of the people on earth. Outside of the major cities in a country, it is reasonable for one’s geographic senses to become a little opaque. I have included the regional thumbnail maps so that every travelogue entry can be easily provenienced with a single click.

My next stop is Eskişehir. Who in the world knows where Eskişehir, Turkey is?

I didn’t, well, until I looked at a map.
