And since birthdays are a time of reflection, I thought I’d take a page from Olivier Blanchard’s (the brand builder) birthday inventory. Only, Iíll forgo the drinking, eating, working and sleeping part as itíd make this post way too long. Instead, Iíve mapped out my bits in pink (above), and dreamed future dreams (below).

So, come on, cough up. Do you have pink bits too? Then why not share your bits on JayHan’s Dotted Map of the world, play countries of the world, map out your bits on TripAdvisor or Facebook’s TravBuddy, OR, get your birthday bits at BrainyHistory?
