Ever had trouble thinking about something to get for someone in your life that travels or has a case of serious wanderlust? One thing that I can undoubtedly say that we travelers are all a huge fan of is globes. Seems simple, right? Not so much. I remember my first globe as a child. Even then, it made me want to explore. Something about seeing the world as it is and seeing all of the countries laid out in this way is truly inspiring.
