Stone & Soil & A World Map to Scale

This definitely falls in the category of places I'd love to visit one day! 
Of course, Denmark isn't quite in my neighborhood.

Verdenskortet (Map of the World) is a walkable map of all globe on the banks of Denmark's Lake Klejtrub was created by Søren Poulsen over the course of 25 years. 4000 square meters make up the 45m x 90m map. Even more impressive, Poulsen started creating it in 1944 (at the age of 56) and continued to work on it until he died at the age of 81 in 1969.  It's truly a remarkable feat!

What a great way to spend the day outdoors, exploring the world on this map!
