Or just throw a dart at it to decide where you’re going next.

Ever wanted to plan a vacation by throwing a dart at a map? Then pick up one of these cork globes, which are ideal for jet-setting travelers and supervillains plotting world domination.

The globes come in two sizes, but both should be great for instilling jealously in your sedentary friends, writes the gift retailer Suck UK:

Stick pins in the places you’ve been or plan your future travels. Choose between the full-size 10” (Ø 25cm) and the mini 5.5" (Ø 14cm) cork globe with a clear and simple world map: pinpoint cities and tick-off countries as you journey around the planet. Been there? Done that? Show off your globetrotting exploits for all to see.

The designer Chiaki Kawakami writes that the inspiration came from wanting to recapture the “special feelings when you see stamps accumulating in your passport. They could be excitement, nostalgia, satisfaction, or perhaps conquest.” Each globe comes with a scant six pins, so make sure to pick up another pack after your next trip to continue marking your adventures.

Globe, $200 ($240 with U.S. shipping) for the large version, $80 ($102 with U.S. shipping) at Suck UK.
