Follow Friday -- Becky of KINEXXIONS
Follow Friday is a day when genealogists can write about another blog, book, genealogy society / historical society or anything they recommend to others. For this reason, I choose Becky's site.
Today, when she posted a map of her newest detour, that of driving to Alaska (see her map, click to enlarge), I thought this would be a great way for children to follow along. Many still have a month of vacation, and they can take the trip with her. What a wonderful way to learn. And, as she mentioned today, she might not always have wifi, so if there is a lapse, you can always go back through her blogs and read about other locations and see some of the best photos you will ever see. She doesn't sightsee like me....she does it, as in taking long hikes and getting the best shots (unlike mine taken a few feet from the car). In addition, she explains things and discusses history...it isn't just photos.
I wish her a safe journey and hope many of you will follow her along this great journey.
