Adding history to link follower

I had this question appropriately answered. Macro to follow links.

Can someone modify this to track a history so that If I go a few files deep into tracking the links I can retrack back to the original cell?

pls try in a normal module

Sub GoTowards()
    If Breadcrumbs Is Nothing Then
    Set Breadcrumbs = New clsBreadcrumbs
    End If
    Set OrigRng = ActiveCell
    Breadcrumbs.Add ActiveCell
    For Each varLink In ActiveWorkbook.LinkSources(xlExcelLinks)
        If InStr(1, Replace(OrigRng.Formula, "[", ""), varLink) > 0 Then
                Workbooks.Open varLink
        End If
    Next varLink
    OrigRng.NavigateArrow TowardPrecedent:=True, ArrowNumber:=1, LinkNumber:=1
    On Error Resume Next
    On Error GoTo 0
End Sub
Sub GoBack()
    If Breadcrumbs.Count > 0 Then
        Set OrigRng = Breadcrumbs.Item(Breadcrumbs.Count).rng
        Breadcrumbs.Remove Breadcrumbs.Count
    End If
End Sub
