Have you ever dreamed of traveling around the world, but you never had enough time or money? Here’s the simple solution. You can travel to Denmark and visit Verdenskortet ved Klejtrup Sø (The World Map at Lake Klejtrup). There are small islets formed to look like entire world. You can visit all countries within half hour.

The map has been made by Søren Poulsen. After returning to Denmark from abroad in 1943, he worked on the drainage of the meadows surrounding the village of Klejtrup. He found a stone shaped like Jutland, which inspired him to create a small world of his own. The World Map was created between 1944 and 1969, and measures 45 by 90 metres (49 by 98 yards). Poulsen built the entire thing with his own primitive tools and a wheelbarrow. He marked his world with country flags, showing which country each area corresponds to. Check out Poulsen’s amazing work below.
