i like this map. enjoy scratching off the places i've been. feels like "progress" toward achieving a balanced life. nice size. works best with the pencil erase on back of pencil and then wipes down easily. makes you want to travel more so you can knock off a few more countries
Bought this to give to my husband for our 7th anniversary. We've had a great time reliving memories while creating a visual representation of our adventures. Best of all, we have two children who can't wait to go on adventures with us to new places!
My daughter bought me the original for Christmas since I love to travel. After a couple of years the scratch off with coin just failed. Got the new one, improvements include use an eraser instead of a coin to scratch off and the state's are clearly marked. Much better than the original. I highly recommend this map for travel lovers
This is the perfect gift for friends and family that travel. I recently bought this as a gift for friends who retired and are traveling the world. I also bought one for myself. It is easy to forget exactly where you went, especially if you travel a lot and these maps are perfect for personal use and for conversation pieces.

My daughter bought this for me for Christmas. We travel a lot and I really loved the idea. Took it in and had a frame built for it and hung it over my desk. US travel is tough to tell where to scratch since there are no markings but I can live with that but now, nothing scratches off. I can rub till the paper tears and nothing happens. So disappointed.
My husband and I received this for a wedding gift. We have traveled all over the US and are starting to take trips overseas, so we were so excited to start scratching off places we've visited. My husband even made an awesome frame for it to hang on our wall. However, it is SO difficult to scratch of the gold layer. It's been hanging on our wall with a bunch of states and countries half scratched off because it's difficult to find the time (and elbow grease) needed to scratch off the top layer. I'm dreading starting on China! I've tried several different erasers, and nothing seems to work very well. Overall, the map looks great and I love all the colors, but it just isn't very functional.
The product looks great! I haven't had a chance to use it though. I need to return it in exchange for a new one because the box arrived damaged and the way it was packaged didn't protect the map from getting damaged...
I brought this for my son's half sister's wedding coming up in May 2018. She loves cruises and I figured she could put map tacks with flags to write in year that they visited and then future trips for her and her husband.
I got this map for my boyfriend for Christmas and he absolutely loved it. We love to travel so this is an awesome and classy way to show where we have been. The first map that delivered had printed incorrectly so when we scratched off the material, the country's name wasn't on there correctly. Uncommon Goods was so quick in their response when I reached out and made it so easy to get a replacement. They shipped me a replacement right away and I didn't need to return the defective one. That made everything so much better. Great map, great gift, and AMAZING customer service from Uncommon Goods!

Easily frameable. Solid color scheme.
