When I returned from studying abroad in Italy, I looked around my room and felt like something was different. Everything looked the same as when I left, yet something just felt off. After a few days I realized that what had changed wasn’t my room but rather myself. I just had these wonderful four months in Europe, exploring this beautiful continent but you couldn’t tell that by looking at my room. My room is an extension of myself and I wanted to you know how much I loved the world just by looking at it. This began my quest to find the perfect maps for decorating my spaces and pay tribute to my time abroad. I have moved every year since studying abroad but my maps always followed suit. Here are my top five favorite inexpensive maps that I have up to showcase my love of travel.
Remember when I told you I went to Hawaii with my BFF? Well, her 24th birthday was in July. I wanted to get her the perfect travel gift. Personally, I love birthday’s. I love celebrating my friends with fun things in life, whether it’s glitter or cupcakes or a handful of balloons. I also wanted to get my BFF a present she would love, would mean something and would inspire her to travel more places, cause ya know, there’s a whole world out there. After searching through Barnes and Noble and not finding any good gift ideas for travelers, I began browsing through Etsy till I found the perfect travel gift.
