Maps and globes always bring me back to elementary school. I can almost hear the crackling of the old maps as the teacher pulls them out over the chalkboard. Dreaming of interesting places and beautiful people from around the world and then “BUZZZZ”… the bell would ring and I was back in my seat at elementary school. Enjoy our top 8 picks, I hope they get you wandering down memory lane!
