    This was a graduation gift for my younger sister. She loves to travel and was so excited when she opened it. I would recommend it for anyone who is looking for a gift for a frequent traveler.

      I manage the Customer Visitor Center for the corporation I work for. Pinpointing where our customers are arriving from is just one more way of showing our interest in them.

        Comments about CORK GLOBE:

        I really enjoyed this globe because I can use it as a conversation starter, a knickknack of sorts, and a history/timeline of my and my families travels. I love this product. My only misgiving is that it is a little smaller than I expected by about an inch or so but I didn't do an accurate calculation of the size it states. When you do get it and set it up and everything, you do need to be careful becuase the cork is a relatively delicated because it is hollow and can crush somewhat easily if not taken care of
