Looking for a new way to document your travels? One of the biggest trends in chronicling trips is by commemorating them on scratch-off maps. These special atlases invite you to scrape away the places you’ve traveled. You’re rewarded with every trip you take—the more you have to scratch, the more that’s revealed on the map below. It’s not only a fun way to record where you’ve explored, but it will encourage you to continue to do so.

Scratch-off maps are made up of two layers, and they function much like a lottery ticket. Using a coin or eraser, you remove the top surface of the map to see what’s hiding behind the foil. And because of this item’s popularity, you’ve got a lot to choose from when it comes to the style of the map. Some makers focus on specific parts of the world, like just the United States or only Europe. They also make the atlases an educational one; several of them incorporate fun facts and photos that are iconic representations of each place. But if you prefer a minimalist aesthetic, there are many maps that unveil vibrant colors or patterns and look great hung up in your home.

Check out a selection of our favorite travel scratch maps, below.
