Like many of us, Baltimore’s Sam Barsky likes to bring along a sweater when he’s on vacation.

The difference is that he’s knitted the sweater himself, and that it also happens to feature the same landmarks he’s visiting.

Photos of Barsky’s sweaters have recently gone viral after they reached the front page of Reddit. He has created 103 different sweaters, which feature images ranging from Stonehenge, to Times Square, to a shark tank inside of an aquarium. It’s something he’s been doing for quite some time.

“I started knitting in March 1999 and made two solid colored sweaters followed from a pattern,” Barsky told Mashable via email.
