One of my life goals as an adult is to visit one new country a year. When my son was born I gave him in that one-new-country-a-year goal, as well. So far, we’re both on track and we have a world map that we (I) update with pins to stay on top of it.
Many travelers keep such a map, of course, but not all of them require pins. If you aren’t into using pins because you find them too hard to push in, too dangerous, or damaging to your map or wall, you’ll want to consider this HomeN’Stars Scratch Off World Map. As implied, you scratch off places once you’ve visited them, which the map rewards by revealing them in color. It’s uniquely and elegantly designed to include special icons for international and U.S. landmarks, sports and other travel activities. It also lets you reward yourself with trophies consistent with the number of cities and countries visited.
In addition to the countries of the world, the map has every U.S. state, Australian state and Canadian province defined in a different vibrant color, and all the capital cities of the world are marked to make it easy to learn geography as you go. The map is 24” x 36” and comes in a tube gift box with a a scratch pen (so you don’t have to use a coin), a guitar pick, mapping pins, instructions, and a cleaning brush. It’s a fun, personalized decoration for any wall in the living room, bedroom, office, or study—and if you ask me it would make for a great gift for most travel enthusiasts.
The map retails on Amazon for $34.99.
