As you are probably not going to try and sell your holiday vids I would just go to 'Google' , click on 'Images' , type in 'globe map' and take one of the 6000 presented to you (try typing in different spellings and versions like 'earth map' 'globe surface' 'surface map' and such. Maybe try and throw in the word 'video' or 'animated' for flavor)
hope that helps
