Scratch Off Your Favorite Trips with a Travel Tracker Map

What is a Travel Tracker Map?

The Landmass Travel Tracker Map is an interactive scratch off map to keep track of your travels. This map has a gold top foil area, like a scratch ticket.

Once you scratch off a place, a vibrant color appears underneath.

What’s extra cool is that there are state outlines for Australia, Canada and the U.S.A. That way you can specify exactly where you’ve explored.

You can also scratch off 210 flags of the world. The Travel Tracker Map makes a perfect gift for the traveler in your life.

Where to Start?

The most challenging aspect of the Travel Tracker Map is determining your “rules.”

I loved the packaging, especially the cute little airplane near the pull-tab! Photo credit: Darren Cheung

Since my husband and I traveled before we met, we had to decide whether we mark off just the places we’ve traveled to together or any place either of us has been.

It was actually quite a lengthy discussion. I’m a rule follower by nature so I needed clear guidelines.

We ended up deciding that we’d count any place that either my husband or I can explored. Layovers didn’t count. Once that was settled, we were able to crack it open!

This map is awesome even while it’s in the package. It comes in a sleek triangular box and is wrapped in tissue.

To open the box, you pull a “plane tab” and guide it around the box. My preschooler thought this was hilarious!

What I Thought

I really wanted this to be a family activity that included my 3.5-year-old. He was eager to get to scratching.

The tricky part is that he was overly-eager and wasn’t super careful with our quarter. I mean, he’s a preschooler and his fine motor skills are what you’d expect.

So, I ended up covering up some areas on the map with my fingers so he wouldn’t scratch off too much. But, I let him scratch off all of Hawaii on his own!

After he got to scratch a few, my husband and I were ready for our turn.

Let me tell you, it was so GRATIFYING!

I had to stop myself so I wouldn’t scratch off all the places on my own. My favorite places to scratch off were France, Spain and California because it brought back a lot of family memories.

What was a surprising bonus is that it sparked conversations about our mutual trips and places we visited before we met.

Scratching off the flags may have been even more satisfying than the countries.

For one thing, we saw quite a few flags of countries we had visited but had forgotten to scratch off the map. My husband found a few cruise ports he had missed.

For this reason, it was the ultimate way to check that we had scratched everything off.

Where to Buy

You can buy your own travel tracker map at Landmass. The travel tracker map is 17″x24″. It looks great centered in an 18″x24″ frame or pinned to the wall.

I found these Decorative Travel-Theme Push Pins or Wood Push Pins that would be a nice fit.

I love these maps! When I was moving abroad my friends bought me one but I couldn't fit it in my case. I'm travelling home with an empty suitcase in a few weeks and it's gonna be the first thing I pack to bring back with me.
