This Story Map project is my attempt to tell the story about global travelers, mainly focused around the 11th century, and
their connections through an interactive way.
Although titled as Global, I will only cover a few stories from Africa, Asia, and Europe, and the intercommunications
between these places. In my mind, they will be different from the travel stories such as between England and France or
China and Korea. Although the communications between these places are also international by the modern standard,
they belong to the same cultural area and share a similar worldview.
Through the interactions with the others, the collisions provide as many challenges as opportunities.
