Why Mapping The Map?

Mapmaking has been an integral part of the human history for thousands of years. From cave paintings to ancient maps of Babylon, Greece and Asia, through the Age of Exploration, first explorers used to map their steps through the land and their miles through the seacoast; they painted their progress in a two dimensional surface, creating patterns of symbols in order to be able to come back at some point or ease others their way to newly discovered places.

We share the same passion of those first explorers. We aim to reach every corner of the planet and discover its mysteries, know local people and learn new ways of understanding culture and daily life. Mapping the Map is the blog where you will be able to follow the steps of two explorers of 21st century.

Although we share those old feelings and aims, as 21st century human beings we use the most advanced technologies to plan, perform and record our journeys through this little blue planet. We start always by using Google Earth, looking at the planet from the space, navigating from one place to another in order to decide our next travel project. We use our camera to catch up every emotion we experience during our journey and we will use this blog to share our discoveries with you.

Travels, experiences, photography, philosophy, happiness, open minds, gastronomy… let’s discover the planet together. Let’s walk through an existing map in order to create our own map of emotions, feelings and thoughts, and put them together to know who we really are.
