A Gift for the World Traveler

What do you give a world traveler who already has the gift of adventure and exploration?

Inspired by a guest's robust travel roster, the team at The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul, wanted to find a way to celebrate all the places he had been — and all those still to come.

A Memorable Farewell

The hotel planned a memorable farewell for the guest's departure day. Upon discovering that it was also his birthday, they wanted to make his gift particularly grand. Alongside a signature Ritz-Carlton cake and Champagne, the hotel granted him a gift he could carry with him on all his adventures to come.

A personalized world map poster featuring a top foil surface that would allow the guest to keep a visual record of his travels was the final piece presented to him. With this map, this passionate traveler could not only map the places he had been but also those he planned to go. And by no surprise, Turkey was the first country marked on his map.

"I have traveled to many destinations, but Turkish hospitality won my heart."
