I am very good at reading maps, I always have been. Traveling with my sister around Europe with our backpacks, I had maps from every single town and city and finding my way was simple. Maps make sense to me, ever since I was a little girl I always liked looking at Atlases and maps plotting my next destination and revisiting roads previously traveled. I would say that since traveling has been an important part of my life since I can remember, I would say that maps would be a natural extension of that experience. I really like seeing the difference that time makes on maps, just recently there was an exciting find in Germany, a 500 year old map of the new world with the first time use of the word America, it had been found in a math book. I would have loved to have been there for that find.
