With the World Scratch Map it's easy to record all the places you have ever traveled to. On first glance it's a classy looking wall map but if you carefully scratch off the places you've been on holiday it reveals some colourful and geographic detail.
The top layer of the map is covered in a gold foil for easy scratching; you only need to rub it with the edge of a coin or your finger nail to reveal the detail underneath. This makes a great gift for anyone who's clocked up a few air miles in their time. This is a great talking point for wherever you might hang it.

For travellers short on space...
Following the enormous success of The Scratch Map, we now bring you the Travel Edition. This miniature map is still as cool as its predecessor but cuter in every way. It makes the best present for any globetrotter as the map (in its sturdy tube) fits into your rucksack without taking up too much valuable room.
The idea behind Scratch Map Travel Edition is that you can take it with you as you journey round the globe and scratch off where you've been on route - all you do is scratch off the gold top foil layer of the place you have visited to reveal a brand new and wonderful world underneath.
Everyone intends to keep a log or a diary when they are voyaging but in reality you generally just forget, can't be bothered or get writers block. The Scratch Map Travel Edition is the perfect way to keep a tally of where you've been, plus, flip the Scratch Map Travel Edition over and you have even more glorious things to fill in, map out and stick on. Amongst other things, the reverse side of the Scratch Map Travel Edition has a plain white map to allow you the opportunity to plot your route. You can also paste an image of yourself in the 'before' box and then 'after'. The perfect way to assess the tanning progression!
The Travel Edition Scratch Map also has some top tips on it. For example, did you know that Bulgarians shake their heads from side to side to mean 'yes' and nod up and down to say 'no'? Did you know that cutting down a cactus in America carries a twenty five year prison sentence? Perhaps think twice about bringing home a prickly present for someone. One of the other quirks the map has is sections where you can jot down the music you listened to, the best friend you made and the top 10 highlights. In short, the Scratch Map Travel Edition is brilliant.
