The world map below is my husband's. I bought it for him 20 or 30 years ago (along with the little red pins,) when he started his life as a 'world traveler'. You can see he has been many, many places. Some of them he has visited many times . His traveling has been on behalf of the World Evangelical Congregational Conference, visiting member churches, preaching and teaching.
I have probably been to about a dozen of these places on this map. I can't say I'm too sorry, because some of these places carry their own hazards which I could do without.
M is also for magnets.
The ones below are just a few of many we have collected. We don't really officially 'collect' them. It's just that when we are away if we see one that we particularly like, we buy it and add it to our refrigerator.
The lifeboat on the left is my prize. I bought it at the Lifeboat House at the North Landing in Flamborough, UK, my childhood haunts.
The seal and the fisherman holding his catch, we bought in Norway last year, where we met Rune of 'Visual Norway.'
Of course, bottom right, is the griffon of Wales.
