Dad's Journeys

This is a photo of my dad (Mark C. Espy, Sr.) as a boy, standing in front of a world map in his bedroom in Headland, Alabama (circa 1951).  During his lifetime he did a significant bit of traveling, both in the U.S. and internationally.  He saw virtually every US state, including Alaska and Hawaii. Countries he visited: Canada (3), Honduras, Brazil (2), Argentina, Chile, Jamaica, The Bahamas, Haiti, England, France (2), Belgium, Switzerland, Greece, Turkey, Denmark, Sweden, Estonia, Russia and Finland.  And I am probably missing two or three.
