TravellersPoint Map

this is a connect-the-dots representation of most of the places i have been on my odyssey. each plot represents one or more nights i slept in an actual bed. nights spent in transit are not plotted. several places i have stayed are not plotted because they are not recognized.
note: believe me, if could embed this map directly into WordPress i would.
