Well that's the idea behind travel bugs
, you get one and you attach it to whatever you want, and then send it off on its travels. Then when somebody finds what you sent off, they see there's a travel bug attached to it and they use the code on the travel bug to track it.
You can set goals as well. I found one recently that was part of a race. A family each had their own little items which they placed at the same time, and the winner was the first one to travel 10,000km. The one I found had already won, it was all over europe and down in south africa before making its way here.
Other people put goals like "I'd like to visit every country in Europe" or "I want to go to Italy and then back to Ireland" or whatever.
