    I really dig this idea. I hope more people visit and read! Sharing our stories is vital to healthy cultural and personal growth.

    I love how you break these stories up in such detail- and in ways that are captivating- with timestamps, locations, tweets. I've been trying to think of what story I'd tell on Maptia and I have to say- mine wouldn't be like these! These are so amazing- almost like narratives in novels.

      Thanks for the kind words Alessandra—I really liked Al's unique approach of summing up his M25 microadventure with tweets too—there's truly an infinite number of ways to tell a story!

      I wish that I could write such eloquent prose and take mesmerising photos of places that I've travelled to and lived in as well... please don't be put off—if you have a story that you'd like to tell, then tell it and you might surprise yourself! I know from personal experience that the only way to improve (at anything really) is through failing lots... taking hundreds of rubbish photographs and writing as much as possible until (eventually) it doesn't sound entirely terrible ;)
