Friday Favorites: Cartography

I don't know about you, but lately, I have been sooooo ready to travel. We were out of the country almost 6 months ago, and now I'm beginning to get antsy again. I'm the type of person that loves change and enjoys experiencing something new. There is nothing better to me than living out of a suitcase, visiting loved ones, creating memories, exploring new places, and adapting to different cultures. Oh, and hotel shampoo makes my day, I'm weird like that. It's like I'm having cabin fever in my own city! Doesn't even have to be an international destination either. Doesn't even have to be a plane ride away, for goodness sakes. Train, car, bike, hot air balloon, segway. I'm ready to go! Wait. Reminder to self: Passport name change ASAP. Ok. Then I'll be ready to go!

To curb some of my wanderlust appetite, my Friday Favorites this week are map-inspired. I hope it inspires you to reflect on the places you've been and parts of the world your feet still have left to touch.

{and away we go}


















Ok. Got that out of my system for now! {And that last one is true}. Oregon has my heart no matter where we go. For sure.
I'm still scheming up travel plans though. It's who I am!

Where are you dreaming of?

I really love the wall maps! I think I might need one! :) Do you collect anything specific when you travel to a different country? Reese and I have started collecting 4x6 sized maps of the country to hang up in our office...when we have one! :) I have to agree with you about traveling often. I start getting antsy after a few months. Already planning a trip to Prague! :) Hope you are able to go somewhere soon!

Loving that Keep Calm poster!!! I am aching to travel! I love it, but don't do it as often as I would like!

Okay... I just fell in love with you because of this post. I collect globes... and this just made me get goosebumps... not to mention that perfect colored wonderful travel luggage in the first picture. AHHH :) I need all of this!

Wow...So many places I am dreaming of going...I think most of all would be Spain, Greece, New Zealand and back to Italy (taking my husband this time around)...I love your last photo though...Our hearts will definitely always stay in Oregon too.

Oh and great reminder on the passport name change...I need to do that too!

Ok first of all, I love your adorable header.

Second, these are a-stinking-mazing!!! I love that swimsuit. I adore map stuff. People come up with the coolest stuff!

Lastly, thanks for your comment! I will most certainly have a great weekend! I hope you do the same!

I'm getting antsy too! I dropped a friend off at the airport today and it made me want to fly somewhere SO BADLY. Part of the reason is probably that I'm getting sick of the cold and snow, but also I just want a little escape from everyday life, even if just for a long weekend.

The next thing I have to look forward to is Vegas (or possibly somewhere else) in July. Is it summer yet?

I am loving the dress and the swimsuit! How fun are they???

I think y'all should travel to LOUISIANA!! : )

I really want that Oregon print!

Also, I love the idea of using maps as wrapping paper. My husband is an engineer and we use their old plans for the same purpose.

The World in Words is SO cool! Even if NZ is really tiny. :(
