Travel Inspiration and Manifesto

February 22, 2015
"I want to see the world. Follow a map to its edges, and keep going. Forgo the plans. Trust my instincts. Let curiosity be my guide. I want to change hemispheres. Sleep with unfamiliar stars... and let the journey unfold before me."


Over the last month we've been in a rut, and have been searching for travel inspiration so that we can begin planning our next adventure. While we were searching we ran across the travel manifesto above, on Maptia.com, and decided to adopt it as our own pledge to stay curious and explore the world!

In the same day, as a part of our Valentine's Day celebration, we found one of the most beautiful maps that gave us exactly the sort of inspiration we were looking for.

The Luckies of London travel scratch map is an incredibly detailed map of the world, covered in gold foil, so that you can scratch off and keep a record of all your excursions.

Although we consider ourselves well-traveled, we realized when the map arrived and we started scratching, that we have so much more to see and so many more places to go! Here are some close ups of our map here at home:




In all honesty, we haven't stopped staring at it since it arrived, and we've had nothing but wanderlust ever since. We highly recommend it for anyone looking for a creative way to document their travels, or for anyone looking for a stylish map to have in their home.

"Bon Voyage" for now, while we continue making travel plans for the spring!

Happy Valentine's Day, family and friends!

We will be celebrating Valentine's together on a day trip as a family, but wanted to let you know that we miss you all and will be reflecting on how fortunate we are to be surrounded by so much love and support from you (even from so many miles away).


Hope you all have a great day celebrating!

Happy Valentine's from Seattle, with love.
