That’s not a map… THIS is a map!

We’d been looking for a wall map and hadn’t found the right one. Till now. Advertised as a “wall mural,” this National Geographic map is 9′ 2″ wide by 6′ 4″ high and occupies a commanding place on our living room wall. The map is made of vinyl coated wallpaper material, so it looks great and should be durable.

We’ve begun using it to mark places we’ve been to and, more importantly, places we hope to visit. Flag pins with numbers correlate with brief descriptions of the various locales posted on a wall near the map. It makes us smile, and it’s a great conversation piece!
