Maps, I love them!
I seriously can't wait till I can afford to buy a large map and hang it up on our dining room wall. We do have a shower curtain map in our bathroom (which needs to be replaced) and it has come in handy on many shower day dreams of traveling while getting ready for work. Lately I've been staring off into the Europe part of the map as I am traveling to London, Paris and Scotland this year with some of my good friends from college Danielle and Allison. However, I'm always looking for new places to travel and maps really keep me focused on my travel goals.

The countries on our list so far are:
  • Brazil
  • Thailand
  • Canada
  • China
  • Estonia
  • Vietnam
  • Cambodia
  • Bolivia
  • Croatia
  • Paraguay 
  • Columbia
  • Argentina (Patagonia) 
Yes, it's quite a list and Brazil is actually the first on coming up on that list because Pato's sister is moving with her husband to Sao Paulo. Pato has already traveled to 27 countries in his life and 5 of them are on the list above.  I guess it's safe to say that I have a seriously kick ass travel partner.

Today on design sponge they featured these cute maps from These Are Things and JHill Design 
Even though they are a bit pricey, I am in love with the world map from These Are Things and the Mexico and Argentina prints from JHill.
JHill also has a New Mexico print that was in my opinion sort of lame. It was focused on Roswell which as us bleed Zia  New Mexican's know is only a small and sometimes annoying part of what our bad ass state has to offer. All in all they had a cute approach in mind and I am a fan of their work!

These Are Things


  1. Why isn't Japan on your TRAVEL list??? I can send ya a map from Hokkaido...if you want one! AN ALL JAPANESE MAP!! :)


  2. I would love that!!! I think I may visit Japan sooner than later, I just watched to Cove last week and I'm about to bring the pain to some little Japanese men over there! I think we should meet up for a beer while I'm out there.
