Callum Collie and their map

Hi I'm...

Callum

My job at Luckies involves...

Cutting and sticking, colouring in, winning at ping pong.

My favourite Scratch Map is...

Gourmet Scratch Map – because food is one of the best things about travelling.

Callum's tasting trail through Europe.

My most embarrassing/funniest travel story is...

A tummy upset in a luxury mall on the way to Hong Kong airport meant having to buy very overpriced replacement underwear in a rush to catch my flight. I soon discovered the hard way that Asian sizes come up considerably smaller than European clothing. Good times!

My favourite travel photo I’ve taken is...

It's a tough choice between the beach in Ksamil, Albania or the cathedral in Berlin.

We think this is the beach...
...because there's not enough sand here.

My best travel hack/accessory is...

Ear plugs are a god send.
It’s a good idea to pack a Scratch Map Travel Edition too.

The next item off my travel bucket list will be...

A little Baltic tour around Tallinn, Helsinki and St. Petersburg.

The best place I've ever been to is...

Probably Slovenia - it’s beautiful with good food, great wine and friendly people. Ljubljana old town is relaxed and picturesque and makes a great hub as just an hour or two’s drive from there will get you almost anywhere in the country. Lake Bled and the Vintgar Gorge, an hour north of Ljubljana, are some of the most beautiful places I’ve visited.

My dream travel destination is...

Probably either Costa Rica or Iceland. I'll go with Costa Rica...

Manzanillo at Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica
