A travel journal around the OGF world?

Posted by zhenkang on 18 June 2017 in English (English)

I think now is the summer holidays and I wonder whether to write a travel journal for a trip around the OGF world. This is when both mapping and wiki comes together, a moving map from a traveler's perspective. (I actually hoped for a book about OGF)

I planned that the route for the journey around the mapped continents: Uletha-Archanta-Antarephia-Tarephia and back. Of course, the journey is through mapped countries, so any mapper can be part of the editors of the travel journal. This journal includes countries' places of interest. There can be information about the places visited, and include airlines taken, transportation used, culture of the place, what event was happening in the country during a journey, people met etc.I have seen travel journals online and thought of creating one in the OGF world with everyone's help. By the way, as the world keeps changing, the journal can change too! Check the link!

Places of interest :

Do not be disheartened if your country is not listed! This list is incomplete. I still need more planning of the trip, so discussions can come about the route. I have not explored the OGF world enough yet.

Northwest Uletha (10+ days) : Ingerland (and Mycria)- Sandmark- Kingdom of Pretany (and the PFS)

Central Uletha (1 week): Litavania (and Drabantia)- Escadia?- Midstland- Antharia

South Uletha (2 weeks): Gobrassanya- Khaiwoon- Niulutan-Riu- Lallemand

East Uletha and Axian Penisula (3 weeks or so): Karolia- Dracodia- Glaster (and Agarderia and Wyster)- Mergany (and Eshein)- Belphenia- Kojo- Hoppon- Wiwaxia- Pasundan-Pajadjaran

Archanta (2 weeks): Commonia (and West Commonia) (Note: only a brief visit- too chaotic to stay for long)- Rhododactylia- Unesia?- Develti? (and Omniville?)- Neo Delta- Zylanda- Yuris- Mecyna (and Ismikk?)- Elhadia- Drull- Balonis- Ardisphere

Antarephia and Tarephia: Yet to be confirmed, though Mahhal, Meilan and Latina? (Udzdanart not considered- unsafe and not to visit, no visas there)

I love this idea! I actually had a similar idea some weeks ago, I wanted to write travel impressions of major Ulethan cities. I'd love the travel journal to include my country Antharia, which is located in central Uletha.

Yes, this is a great idea Zhen Khang! I saw on the wiki that Isleño had put this up but didn't realize it was you!

@Demuth: User "Plainoldbread" made that post in User Diaries, which I moved to a wiki sandbox under the same username... because we don't want User Diaries to be full of travel journals. I'd also caution that we don't want people writing about others' countries without permission, so everyone should please keep that in mind.

Hmmm. I'm confused now. Was Plainoldbread's diary entry in response to Zhenkang's or...?

Actually everyone who owns a country can contribute to the travel journal for their part of their country mentioned, just that the journal need some order.

Great idea! There are some pages on Karolian Culture and an extract from a travelogue about the desert railway in Elhadia for ideas. I agree that you should collaborate with the country owners for accuracy.
