In the modern world, it’s easy to feel stuck in a routine and forget to be adventurous. It’s important to remember that life is an adventure, full of new experiences and opportunities.

Beyond GPS Directions

GPS directions may be convenient, but they can limit exploration. To discover new places, try taking a road trip with frequent stops or researching unique locations online. Don’t lose the joy of travel by relying solely on GPS.

Benefits of Maps

Maps give a bird’s eye view of the world. They show the topography of the land, including waterways and vegetation. Maps also help us locate landmarks and transportation hubs, cultural and religious sites. We can use maps to plan journeys, determining the best route, distance and travel time.

"Dear Reader, Get out your map, pick somewhere and just run."

Paper Maps

When it comes to travelling and making new discoveries, paper maps are the best way to go! A piece of paper can be folded up and tucked away in a pocket or bag – much easier than lugging around a heavy atlas! Even better, I love just unfolding my map and exploring the region indicated: looking at roads, rivers and points of interest that I hadn’t known about. It’s almost like being an explorer, discovering something anew – I get so excited with each journey! Paper maps are definitely my favorite way of seeing the world.

Wall Maps

Wall maps bring art, style, and color to any room. Teach kids geography and learn about cultures, history, and travel. Use wall maps as a backdrop for your travel stories or create nesting collages in separate rooms to transport you from place to place!

Nautical Charts

Explore seas with nautical charts! They provide detailed illustrations of shorelines and seafloors, and offer insight into coastlines, reefs, and mysterious creatures. Discover adventure at every turn – from dolphins to starfish. Don’t forget your nautical chart on your next journey!
