History’s Greatest Journeys – Wanderlust from GOOD

Posted to Maps  |  Nathan Yau

GOOD Magazine, in collaboration with Graham Roberts, maps the most famous journeys in history – some fiction, some non-fiction. Wanderlust includes trips like Around the World in 80 Days and Journey to the Center of the Earth to the voyages of Marco Polo and Charles Lindbergh’s transatlantic flight. However, it’s not just a map with journey lines on it; Wanderlust is a history lesson. Select a trip for a summary and explore highlights of the journey.
