stressful, but successful....

Alright, so this map comes in 4 pieces, shipped in a cardboard tube with a packet of paste included (supposedly it comes with paste, my package of glue was lost in transit when the cardboard tube lost its' top, how sad). Lucky for me my grandmother is a saint and an experienced wallpaper applier, otherwise I may have failed miserably at applying this to my wall and then cried for 3 days in a row. I ended up having to buy wallpaper paste from the home improvement store, which we rolled onto the back of each piece really super well, then lightly sprayed with water to loosen up the paper a bit to make it easier to work with. I would highly suggest having a level handy and drawing straight and even lines. I didn't do this for any other pieces besides the first, by the time I got to the final piece things were off by only a bit. But needless to say Uganda is now Ugada due to the overlapping, and just over all Africa is looking a bit disheveled. I don't care, I always wanted to be a cartographer anyway... Other than being a massive pain and forcing me to drink at 2pm during application this map isn't half bad. The affect is totally awesome and eye catching. It's fun to show my friends and family all the places I've been on such a large map. Which brings me to my only other complaint, as another reviewer mentioned quite a few of the pacific islands are missing, so you can say Tofa to Samoa and Aloha 'Oe to Hawaii as far as this map is concerned because they got the snub. Overall it's nearly exactly what I wanted (minus the application process) and achieves the look I was going for, it's quite a statement and great inspiration for future travels.
large and lacking

So this map is huge, which is exactly what I wanted but it's missing a large portion of the pacific ocean. I bought this map so I could mark places I've been too, however the map is missing Tahitit, Hawaii, and the Cook Islands, as well some other lesser known island countries. This map was a huge let down.

The pieces are not square and don't fit together no matter how many times I tried to take off and put back on. Not very happy with this mural!!

Much larger that we thought. uses glue, we thought it was the vinyl sticky back like the others we purchased. Hard to put up and would not hold with tape, if you rent you can't use this. Permanent
