This year's Geography Awareness Week theme is "The New Age of Exploration." For the next few months, this blog will focus on explorers, exploration, and hopefully provide you ideas to develop your own explorer biography and your own geo-explorer field folder for the Annual Poster Contest.
Let's get started.

Explorer: Scott Stoll
If you could travel the world, what would be your preferred mode of transportation? Scott Stoll decided to embark on an epic exploration by traveling the world on his bicycle. In four years he cycled 31,495 miles, visiting 50 countries and six continents. "Unlike most modern day adventures, Scott traveled the world with nothing more than a paper map, and of course the prerequisite open-mind and an open-heart." Scott details his journey in his book "Falling Uphill." He also created a short video with captivating images from his journey.
