Historical Travels

If you’re looking for a quick escape at your desk, and want to learn something while you’re at it, check out GOOD’s wonderful interactive graphic: “Wanderlust.” History’s “greatest journeys” are mapped here, and following along is easy. Click on Amelia Earhart’s journeys, and her path of travel across the world is highlighted. A dialog box appears with Amelia’s picture, and an encyclopedic blurb. You can then click through and follow her path from Oakland, CA to New Guinea before her final flight. Access other famed travels – get a glimpse into explorer’s expeditions, like DeSoto and Columbus; check out the paths of the Old Silk Road and the Orient Express, along with Kerouac’s trip in On the Road.
