LotsToDo challenge - Travel

The current challenge over on the LotsToDo blog is Travel, and I've been thinking about this for several days now, but I just couldn't figure out what I wanted to do.
After seeing June's lovely collage bookmark here, I knew I wanted to a collage piece as well, but didn't get any further than that.
And then, while I was browsing the web for inspiration, I came across this quote by John Muir (21 April 1838 - 24 December 1914, an American environmentalist, naturalist, traveler, writer, and scientist.)
"This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on seas and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls."
After that, I wanted a map to go behind the text, and then I added in other bits from my digital collection. The boot comes from The Graphics Fairy, the clock is a PSP brush adapted from chokingonstatic's abr file, the rose vine is a script by Jules Junk and I can't remember where the ticket came from, I'm sorry.

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you like my piece :)
