I’ve been collecting travel-themed items for my apartment for years, and the one room accessory that always catches people’s eyes is my Scratch Off World Map. When I first heard about it, I instantly knew I had to have it on my wall, and since then it’s been an ongoing changing masterpiece, scratching off new countries I visit! Not only does it display all your adventures, but also every map is unique to its owner — rarely will two people have travelled to the exact same countries.
In this poster-sized map, each country is delineated, and has its own individual color underneath. The gold foil on top easily scratches off with a coin, and blowing or wiping off the loose pieces afterwards works perfectly. The toughest part after the purchase is scratching off all the places you’ve already been — beware of hand cramps! The rest is easy, unless if you visit Russia or Antarctica.
I love how at the bottom there are also fun facts about specific destinations that you can scratch off if you have visited them. As you can see, I still have three more to go! For aesthetic purposes, I know people who scratch off the entire countries when they visit, and then individually pin cities as well. Whatever floats your boat!
Although many think I have been almost everywhere in this world, I take one look and it’s makes me realize I haven’t even nearly “scratched” nearly what’s to be seen!
Want one? You can find it in my travel store here, and also available in black! Free shipping to the US.
