Is nostalgia a coping mechanism

As I was attempting to deal with the overwhelming political anxiety of this fraught time in the United States, I chose to fall back on my go to method of diversion: travel nostalgia. It’s hard to believe that I haven’t been out of the U.S. for a year now. In fact, at this time a year ago, I was road-tripping on the South Island of New Zealand. So, of course I did what we always do and Googled international flights to New Zealand. In the process, I stumbled upon the terrific work of Kiwi cartographer Andre Douglas-Clifford. He created the very neat infographic above and the clever versions of New Zealand road maps below. Check out his official website to see more great maps and graphics, and maybe buy a print or two.
