  • This is such a great template to remix! The possibilities are endless 😛 A couple of ways to remix this template that we discussed last week is to use the map to add your favourite international foods, instead of showing where you live everyone share where they would like to live, dream vacation. I'm so excited to see what variations you all come up with!
