(n.) A strong desire or urge to wander or travel or explore the world
And what better way to document your adventures, memories and travels but by capturing it in a personalised map! This way you can relive those special memories every time you glance at it.
I recently ordered my map of Melbourne from Swedish company Mapiful and put it up in our master bedroom. You can see that post here. Whenever I look at the map, I'm reminded of our journey to Australia, the anticipation and trepidation of living in a new place, fun university days, the close friends we've made, the home we've created and the birth of our beautiful baby girl. It is truly a special place for us.
And as much as I love staying at home, my New Year's resolution is to travel more...both near and far. And decorate more, but that goes without saying. I am well and truly bitten by the travel bug!
I would like to add to my map of Melbourne, a few more places that are special and meaningful. The map of Wales, a beautiful place where I was fortunate to live for quite a few years and made the most amazing friends that are close to my heart till date. A map of Venice, the city that my husband and I explored together. Perhaps even a map of New York or San Francisco, where we hope to travel to one day! And definitely a map of Jaipur, where my mother and I had the most wonderful holiday!
These maps add a beautiful Scandinavian touch with their minimalist design and strong black and white graphics that complement any décor and for a truly personal touch you can also add a tag line to the maps! Short, sweet and meaningful.
This is a fantastic gift to give newly weds especially if they've celebrated a destination wedding, or for your parents anniversary or a housewarming gift! It also makes for a very thoughtful 'bon voyage' present! Not to mention the perfect Christmas gift for the traveller or decorator in the family!
