Love this map. Wanted to figure out where all the different islands were in relation to each other. So many people talk about this or that island, and I needed a context to begin planning future travel. This map is so handsome. I have it on the living room wall. It is helping us visualize the region, and visitors who see it point out where they have been - a great conversation starter.
