A framed map, also known as a scratch map, is a foil map in which explorers can scratch of the areas they have visited to reveal particular details concerning that area. This map is especially popular with travelling enthusiasts and it is even great for kids. A framed map can be customised to a traveller’s preferences such as cuisines or water bodies or wildlife or colours. Scratch off maps containing cuisines show the different delicacies eaten by the locals in a particular place. This will help you remember the dishes to order when you visit a country such as Japan, Germany or Angola. Maybe you could even customise the map to contain the different recipes on how to cook these dishes.
These maps can be global, that is, showing all the countries of the world, continental, showing countries of a particular continent such as Africa or even the map of a particular country such as the United Kingdom. A foil map is the perfect way of explaining the places you have visited all over the world. It is very entertaining and will keep your guests on their toes as they marvel on the different activities you undertook during your travels.
