Flashlight Friday! It’s Time to Wander the Map

By | December 20, 2013

Flashlight Friday

Flashlight Friday—the day I shine a tiny little spotlight (a.k.a. flashlight) on a traveler who I admire.


That’s the sound I make when I start vacation. So now you know—I have started vacation! This will be my last blog entry until January 6, 2014, when I will start up again, posting 3 times per week.

But first, I want to tell you about Jenna and Micah, from “Wander the Map.” This young couple is originally from Minnesota. They currently live in Florida and travel from there.

What I like about their blog is the eye candy. Everywhere they go, they take tons of pictures and post a photo essay of each place.

Who wouldn’t want to go to Norway or Northern Ireland after seeing their photos?

They have featured destinations, which organizes everything nicely and makes it easy to navigate around their site.

I like the design of their Featured Destinations page.

My two favorite photo-heavy posts so far that aren’t specifically photo essays are Glacier Hiking and Ice Climbing in Iceland and Exploring Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland.

It was also fun to see a review of the Blue Lagoon in Iceland, which I’ve been to. (I’m just a little jealous that they got free entry and free food at the restaurant. I need to figure out how to do that!)

Finally, Jenna and Micah post video montages of their destinations, which give an added dimension to the descriptions of their trips. I like the Norway video. You should check it out.

Do you love the eye candy on “Wander the Map?” What’s your favorite picture? What do you want Jenna and Micah to photograph next? Let me know, in the comments below.

Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!
