World map prints from Etsy and why I love to travel | The Small Desk

I love to travel. Why? It reminds me how there really is a world out there to explore, not only literally but also metaphorically. It reminds me that I live in a country where I have the freedom to travel and the choice to take time off work in order to explore.

By travelling the world it gives you greater humility, understanding of cultures and educates you in things you can only learn through experience. As Casey Neistat said in his recent vlog, there are two types of experiences, ones that happen to you and ones that you create. Either can go right or wrong, but it is important not to just let the world pass by, but to go out there and create experiences for yourself.

One way that I believe helps you to remember the scale of everything is to look at a world map. The background on my computer screen at work is a world map. It reminds me not to get too caught up in the tiny things at work and that work enables me to travel.

With that in mind I am looking to find a world map print, but because I am design obsessed, I wanted a pretty one. I have found Etsy do the most beautiful ones. Here are some of my favourites:

1. Paint Splashes Map of the World, Art Pause, prices start at £11.99

2. Travel Quote Map of the World, BySamantha, prices start at £5.43

3. Typography Map of the World, Kia co, £20

4. Pictorial Map of the World, blancucha, £20.35

5. Grid Map of the World, Macanaz, prices start at £20.35

6. Grey Map of the World, Macanaz, prices start at £20.35

Which is your favourite and do you also love to travel?
