The first thing I noticed about Maptia was the manifesto, one I can buy into with my whole heart. I, David duChemin, want to see the world. Follow a map to its edges, and keep going. Forgo the plans. Trust my instincts. Let curiosity be my guide. I want to change hemispheres & sleep with unfamiliar stars and let the journey unfold before me.

Maptia is building a really great stage.

Take a moment today, especially for those of you that travel, tell stories, and want to nurture the spirit of adventure within, to browse the blog on Maptia, and to read some of the stories on the site.
