Beyond the experience of a trip itself, one of the true pleasures of traveling is looking back on your journeys, remembering your favorite moments, and sharing those memories with family and friends.
We’ve found a cool new way to do just that, and now we want to share it with you. Lightravels offers world and U.S. maps with illuminated light pegs that you can use to mark the countries and cities you’ve visited in a colorful, visual way. The framed maps, which weigh about 10 pounds and measure 33 x 22 x 3 inches, come with 60 light pegs in six different colors — perfect for showing which places you’ve visited on different journeys. Watch the video below to learn more:
The maps retail for $229.99 plus shipping, but Lightravels is giving one away for free to one lucky IndependentTraveler.com reader. To win, leave a comment below telling us which map you’re most interested in and why you want to win it. (You can see the selection of world maps here.)
You must enter by 11:59 p.m. ET on December 31, 2012. A winner will be chosen at random from all entries received. Be sure to include a valid e-mail address so we can contact you in case you win. This giveaway is only open to residents of the 48 contiguous United States or the District of Columbia. Please click here for the full contest rules.
