Real Traveler's map

Post your travel maps in this thread. Pic related is the official SighSee Real Traveler's map™, edition 4.0.4

Fill in the countries and subdivisions you have visited, talk about your map and ask others about their maps. You can use the map however you like, the colors are more like suggestions, you don't have to use them, and you don't have to use all of them. You can add or remove colors and change the map as much as you want in any way you want. Don't like this map? Upload a completely different one. Up to you. Despite what some might say, there's no "wrong" way to use the map, and new posters and less travelled people are welcome and encouraged to stay and post 🙂 This map is a group effort by our board, and we can only improve it if people reach out to share suggestions or corrections.

This is the newest edition of the map, edition 4.0.4, updated for January 2024. I'll post the simplified template in the next post. Changelog:

Subdivision changes
>Added Southwest Papua province of Indonesia (located in the northwest of Papua)
>The Central African Republic created three new prefectures in 2020 that I wasn't aware of before now
>Following a referendum in August 2023, Ethiopia's Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region was finally dissolved and split into Central and South Ethiopa Regional State
>Norway reversed some of the merged counties from 2020 and now consists of an unholy mix of 15 old and new counties
>Following the war with Azerbaijan, Artsakh has been dissolved and removed from the map
And this is why we travel lads. A country just disappeared overnight. The old Artsakh has been added as DLC.

    Pic rel is a simple template you can paste over your old map to update it, but only if your old map is the 4.0.3 edition. Otherwise you have to use the template in the OP. Continued changelog:

    Minor changes
    >Changed the borders between Astrakhan and Kalmykia in Russia
    >Changed the tripoint between Chhattisgarh, Andra Pradesh and Telangana in India. Also made cosmetic changes to the Sri Lanka land bridge and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, including joining the Coco Islands to Yangon in Myanmar.
    >Made the Southern French Territories look nicer, including adding Banc du Geyser, which was missing
    >Made the Azores look nicer
    >Chongming in China moved from Jiangsu to Shanghai, where it belongs
    >American Samoa was errounously divided into three islands, when it should be divided into three districts. Also added Swains Island and Rose Atoll for good measure
    >Tweaked the borders of the East Kazakhstan/Abay, Jetisu/Almaty and Karaganda/Ulytau oblasts in Kazakhstan, as per another Anon's suggestion in an earlier thread
    >Added a dotted box around the individual islands of the US Minor Outlying Islands

    In other news, there are ongoing clashes in Western Sahara where Morocco seized control of the village of Guerguerat and the SADR may have lost control over the strip bordering Mauritania. Finding an actual map showing who controls what is difficult though. Morocco may control the entire strip or just the road from Guerguerat to the border. All maps show Western Sahara still controlling the strip despite Morocco taking control over Guerguerat in 2020. For this reason I haven't updated this part of the map.

    As for Anon's suggestion in the previous thread, which was archived before I could answer, about adding zoomed in boxes with the subdivions of the Caribbean, it's something I want to do, but I don't really know how. The times I've tried it never looks nice. Suggestions on a viable way of doing it is more than welcome.

    This map comes with "DLC", which are optional regions you can add for a few select countries. It's hard to make a good Real Traveler's Map without having some regions be too small or too large, or sometimes the official divisions are not perfect for a traveler for whatever reason. Up to you if you want to change one or more countries. Feel free to add or suggest others if you want.

    What counts as having visited or lived in a subdivision? Completely up to you, use your own definition. If you need official guidance however, I personally like this Anon's post:
    https://archive.4plebs.org/trv/thread/2337267/#2340603

    In short, any visit of any length counts as a visit as long as you made a conscious effort to go there for touristic reasons. This excludes layovers and transits and such, but includes short visits such as leaving the airport for a few hours during a layover. For living, more than a month for non-touristic reasons, meaning you could travel around while there, but the reason you went was work or study or such.

    There's also the Ultra Deluxe Autism Edition, with second level subdivisions for the USA, Canada, Russia, China and India. This was made as a one-off and won't be updated regularly. It's accurate as of March 2023, if you spot a mistake, please notify OP and it'll be fixed.
    Changelog for US and Canada:
    https://archive.4plebs.org/trv/thread/2337267/#2342099
    There's also this map:
    https://archive.4plebs.org/trv/thread/2427017/#2427024
    with more second level subdivisions, but I haven't gone over it and can't guarantee its accuracy.

      Hi Norwegian anon, I'm the guy who posted the original extra autism edition. In my original map I had 2nd level subdivisions for a bunch more countries like Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, South Africa, Pakistan, Iraq, France, Australia etc. Would you mind incorporating them into this cutout map you made?

    Instructions on how to use the map, courtesy of Dutch Anon.

    How do you fill in the map? It's very easy. You only need to use two buttons, which I have circled in red.
    Say you want to colour a specific region light red, you click the tool that I marked B, and you'll see your cursor takes the shape of that tool. Then you left click the colour you want to use, i.e. the big circle. You'll notice that colour 1, which I marked C, changes to light red.
    If you repeat this process but you RIGHT click a coloured circle instead of left clicking it, you will select the colour as colour 2. Let's click dark red. This way you can have both shades of red selected at the same time, which makes colouring in the map more convenient, especially when doing big countries.
    Now you select the tool which I marked A. Let's get to colouring. Say you want to colour Indiana in light red and you want to colour Ohio in dark red. Easy. Left click Indiana and right click Ohio.

      Original creator here. I've made a few updates to the OOTCS:
      >upgraded the map to 4.0.4, mostly for consistency & principle (sticking to 4.0.3 wouldn't have changed much, to be honest)
      >replaced the ampersand (&) in the title with the word "and" (late onset OCD triggering; some islands having "and" in their names but the name of the map having an "&" no longer sat right with me)
      Really dumb changes, amirite?

      The most important change I made:
      >added Trindade and Martim Vaz after noticing two tiny black dots in the water next to Brazil's Espírito Santo region
      Even though this archipelago isn't fillable and unlikely to be visited by normal people, I put it in there for educational purposes.

    And finally, here's my map. I haven't travelled as much as I've wanted to for the past few years, but I did go to the Azores last year, which was one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen, and travelled a bit around Norway by car. My most recent trip was driving up to Trondheim for a few days, including visiting the tiny town with the funny name Hell. I use the old Norwegian counties on my map, and this was my first visit to both North and South Trøndelag. This was the furthest north I've ever been, and in the summer I hope to be able to go on a proper road trip all the way up north to Lofoten and the North Cape. I've said this for a couple of years now though, so we'll see, lol.

      Given that you've been to Syria (when and how was it?) and Central Asia you might actually be serious when you say Venezuela. What are you planning for when you're there?

        It was late 2022. It was a really cool experience. The only other tourists I saw outside of my group (you need a tour guide to go most places) was a lebanese couple so everywhere you go it's all locals and you have a large amount of access to sites. For example in Busra our group were the only people in some roman ruins whereas you go go similar places in Greece or Italy and it's packed. You see the aftereffects of the war, and it humbled me a lot - made me appreciate a lot of the things we have. Seeing kids that are happy playing in bombed out buildings kind've trivializes a lot of your problems.

        For Venezuela, Angel Falls is definitely on the list but I haven't planned too much yet. I might do a tour group for here as well given the current situation in the country but need to do more research. Potential of getting a free trip to SE Asia later this year which will burn most of my vacation days so I'm waiting for this to pan out either way before researching much more. If I did do it I would also try to hit some nearby countries in the same trip. When I looked Columbia and Panama flights made the most sense.

          Thanks for sharing about Syria. You snuck that in at a good time, probably not going to get any easier any time soon.

          Didn't they shut down all the Venezuelan embassies and consulates in Canada too? As an American I'd have to go the route of getting a visa in Mexico which is a pain in the ass but still tempting as hiking Roraima and seeing Angel Falls would be an amazing trip.

            Yeah, with the stuff going on with Israel and Gaza, I'm not sure you'd want to go right now. Bit higher risk of things going wrong imo.

            The embassies are open but you can't get the visa through them. One benefit of going with the tour group, else I'd have to go via Panama. The rough plan was to also visit both Panama and Colombia at the same time anyways though.

        It was back in 2010, way before shit went down with the coup. I was 17 and went along with my dad and his wife to visit her family there. Not much to be said tbh, it was warm, humid and dusty at the same time. I never drank water out of a plastic bag up until then and I once puked my soul out after eating fried insects. Overall there wasn't much to do in the capital, besides going to a local market to buy food or random trinkets. Back then, i didn't care about travelling so I didn't really make an effort to go see stuff.

            I went for 5 days, not 2 weeks. It was very cheap. I spent about 150 euros for flights and accomodation (which was a nice AirBnB smack dab in the middle of Yerevan), plus another circa 100 euros for all my expenses (including museum tickets, taxis around the country, restaurant meals etc). I could have spent much less if I wanted to, while still having a nice time. As long as you're a little bit adventurous, Armenia is probably one of the best options for a budget trip if you're from Europe: tons of intersting stuff to do, friendly people, no visa required, and everything is very, very cheap by euro standards.

            How did your trips to Lithuania and Latvia go?

            • 1 month ago
              Anonymous

              Went there in the summer of 2023. It was quite fun. Lithuania is a super comfy country, Vilnius is a lovely city with plenty of green areas and some nice monuments. We also visited Kaunas and the Hill of Crosses at Siauliai, both interesting. The area around Trakai castle was also wonderful, but the ticket and the visit to the castle itself felt like a scam.

              Latvia was probably even better for me, but that's just because we got to do hiking there and I'm into that shit. We visited Riga and then went to explore the hills in Gauja national park and the boglands in the Kemeri national park. Both were awesome and I got to see some cool wildlife and flora.

              Overall definitely recommended if you want an Euro trip that's slightly outside of mainstream tourist routes. Once I manage to get a decent job that allows me to save up some money I'll definitely visit Estonia and Finland so I complete the eastern Baltic region. For Estonia I'm not sure there's anything really worth visiting outside Tallinn (haven't really looked it up yet to be fair), but in Finland I definitely want to go see the lakes.

                Estonia imo is the nicest of the Baltics. Tallinn and Tartu are both better cities than Riga, Kaunas, or Vilnius. Saarema is also comfy in the summer. I suggest visiting in January though for the true Estonian comfort experience tm

      OP here. The official rule is "it's up to you". If you've driven through a place and feel like you've "visited" it, then mark it as visited on your map. I personally would only include it if I actually stopped my car and walked out to see or do something. Doesn't have to be much, doesn't have to be for a long time, but it must be something. One of the Norwegian counties I've "visited" on my own map is because of a ten minute stop to look at a train station with a funny name. For me, that counts. I think this definition works the best, but you can (and should) make up your own mind about what counts for you. If you roadtrip a lot, adding a different color for "drove through" would probably make sense for your map, you can also add the US counties to your map if that's where you drive, found here

    I was living in India long-term up until last year. Recently moved back to the U.S. tbh, I miss India quite a lot, but am otherwise happy with the change in pace.

    No big travel plans for foreseeable future, other than:
    >taking a 5-6 day trip with my wife to Iceland or elsewhere in May
    >taking a 14-day trip to Turkey in June for my best friend's wedding
    >taking a 6-10 day trip to El Salvador some time before mid-summer

    I've decreased my workload and am applying to a handful of graduate programs this coming September. If I get in anywhere--I think I will--I'm going to spend all of next summer in India. Until then, it's just studying and being more of a poorgay than I've been in ages.

    also,
    >inb4 "taking the bus doesn't count!!!!"
    >the unbroken line of subregions in Eastern Europe was part of a solo hitchhiking trip I took in 2014--I hitchhiked through all of those regions, and camped and/or stayed with local people in most

      Recommendations for Norway?

        Anonymous

        I only know the country north of Narvik, so if you're in that region your options are either limited (regarding settlements) or endless (any kind of outdoor stuff, the landscape is gorgeous everywhere) anyway. Tromso has some fine museums, and the WW2 stuff in Narvik is pretty interesting. The hike to Knivskjelloden is decent, gets you to a small peninsula 1.4 km north of the North Cape with good views of the latter. Haven't done any multi day hikes but I think there are many blogs recommending good routes if you're into that. Public transport is really limited so check schedules online or hitchhike. Can definitely recommend the Stockholm-Narvik night train along the iron ore line, one of the best European long distance rail journeys.

I'm thinking Tokyo maybe, I'd love to see the flood control, railroad, and bridge infrastructure, and it looks like there are tours for a bunch of those projects like g-cans and the seto oohashi. Also want to see Russia at some point, the metro systems look so cool, as well as Chongqing and Taiwan.

I'm into mountains and shit, which is why I'm looking to the east part of the country. I know Kyrgyzstan is more mountainous, but I can't get a direct flight to Batumi out of there. A lot of people who have been there on this board shill Osh pretty hard, but I've never heard of Naryn.

          You could go to Pavlodar if you're interested in Russians, generally flying works, but the size of Kazakhstan only shows when you're travelling by train.

          Definitely stop in Almaty, the most successful "Soviet" city of Central Asia.
          If you're up for it do an overland trip to Kyrgyzstan via Charyn canyon (pic related) and the Kegen border, maybe spend a night or two at the shores of Issyk-Kul to relax.
          >Naryn
          It's the most Kyrgyz part of Kyrgyzstan, as the North has heavy Russian influence and the South does have many Uzbeks and Tajiks.
          There's even a route towards Jalal-Abad/Osh if you're adventurous.
          >Osh
          The part of the Fergana valley burgers can visit without a visa. I prefer the Uzbek cities of Namagan/Margilan, but I understand that the crossing the border isn't for everyone.

        The idea is that you create the map once and keep it on your computer, and update it after you travel. Making it for the first time, having to look at old travel photos, calling your mom to ask if you visited this city or that, looking at maps to see if you crossed a border, that's the fun part 🙂

        What as Turkey like? I've always considered going there but... I'm something of a Romeaboo so I'm only really interested in the greek history of it.

          I've only been to Istanbul, but it's great if you like history. I actually visited Istanbul straight from Rome and to me Istanbul was the more interesting place both for the history and how it looked in general. The food is great too. The negatives are the street barkers can be a bit annoying and the refugees there are desperate, so they might bug you sometimes.

            That sounds kind of great, then. Is it like rome or worse?

    I don't remember which region exactly lot of places i went to were, so I just let them light green.
    France, Spain, and Austria mostly got explored by foot.

    And most countries I visited mire than once. But still only so few, next trips planned in the future are Brazil and Japan again with friends.

    Shit map. Way too many regions which are tiny, and which make no sense to divide up from a traveler's perspective.

        It's fricking gash.

          It's based on first level administrative divisions for each country. Not our fault if 1) you're moronic and 2) Australia has a federal system while Madagascar doesn't. You can customise the map to get second level divisions for some countries, and you can also fill it up however you want.

      You can use any map you want.

      No problem. Thanks for sharing.

      >no subdivisions in Russia, Australia nor Brasil
      what a fricking brainlet. only a moron like you could believe that going to moscow is undistinguishable from climbing mountains in Magadan oblast, or Pilbara and Sydney are similar, or there's no need to specify if you went to Rio or some village in the Amazon (it's all just "brazil" huh?)

      tldr; have a nice day

      Frick off Ovodda, I know it's you.

      This thread and the map aren't for travelers honey. They're for Real Travelers™.

        Imagine not understanding the 'essence' of a destination, and instead option for an African warlord's take on the matter, or a busybody local officials who gerrymander shit every 5 years.

      to respond in good faith - honestly no matter how you slice the world there will be some nuance lost, unless you put a dot in every place you went to or something. Political subdivisions aren't perfect yes, but they are the best way to divide up the world neutrally.
      Is there much difference between Edineț, Moldova and Briceni, Moldova despite being in different provinces? no
      Is there much difference between some tiny outback town in Western Australia and Perth? yes
      this is just an approximation of your travels and experiences, like a shadow from which other anons can figure out the full object.

      You're fricking moronic. I'm not advocating for this map, I'm just posting it because I already had it and I don't feel like editing an image right now. But also, your whining is irrelevant because none of the countries you brought up are places I've visited. I've never been to Australia, Russia, or Brazil, which is why none of those are highlighted, you braindead, moronic piece of shit. Literally off yourself, you abrasive, worthless moron

    Added Southern Spain, Gibraltar, and Tangiers to my list last week (due to the status of Gibraltar I wouldn't add the UK as a visited country)
