    We love to get away anywhere on the coast– We’ll book a hotel near the beach and just drive… Our latest adventure was up in Cambria, CA!

  2. Lis August 26 2013 at 1:43 pm #

    I really want to see big sur!

  3. Becca August 26 2013 at 1:46 pm #

    Oh man, so many places I want to go – but mostly I really want to go to Bora Bora or Tahiti . . . when we want adventure at an affordable price however, we usually go camping or something.

  4. megan August 26 2013 at 1:46 pm #

    for little day-to-day adventures we either head to the coast at sunset or find a place with a good view of The City {aka San Francisco}… but we’re big adventurers too! we’ve backpacked in patagonia, made our way through guatemala and belize and are planning our next big adventure to iceland. our next little adventure will be a couple nights in morro bay, ca for a belated celebration of our 3rd wedding anniversary {and 10 years total together}!

    I just moved to Chicago, so my favorite daily adventures are the inevitable moments of “Where am I?” during my daily strolls and errand-running.

    I’d love to travel to europe and visit all of the major landmarks!

  14. Holly August 26 2013 at 3:11 pm #

    Someplace I would love to travel and see would be the Redwoods in California. Those tree giants have always seemed magical to me, and I can’t wait to one day road trip to them.

    My husband is from southern Ontario, and when we visit we always hop in his parents’ car and take off for the day. Road trips are the best adventures!

    I would love to go camping with my little family in the smokey mountains. We just moved to North Carolina a year ago, and the thought of a fire with s’mores just warms my heart, even better if we could see a deer or two :) The map has been pinned and favored :) xo

    I favorited the map! I am loving it. My username is Maggie Broderick on etsy.

    I love to go to NYC during the fall or right before Christmas if I want an adventure that feels very season appropriate. Otherwise, I love going to Pasadena to visit my brother for family/relaxation time.

  25. Raquel August 26 2013 at 4:39 pm #

    Pinned and favorited! Sadly we aren’t able to get away for many adventurers, but If we could we’d love to actually get away for our honeymoon we never had. Somewhere tropical I’m sure. :)

  26. Brie August 26 2013 at 4:58 pm #

    When we lived in Chilliwack, I loved heading down the Oregon Coast – so many quaint sea-side towns and amazing little stores to peruse. Now, we are back in Alberta and don’t get away nearly as much as we used to. But I bought a book recently, entitled Country Roads of Alberta: Exploring the Routes Less Travelled, so now our goal is to become “tourists” of Alberta and explore all the areas that I only faintly remember from my childhood, plus many more :)

  33. Kelsey August 26 2013 at 6:18 pm #

    I LOVE going to Maui for a bit of adventure! Surfing, zip lining over the rain forest, snorkelling, and SO much more.
    And you can never go wrong with camping or going to the mountains for a weekend! I have such fond memories of going camping with my family as a child. I can’t wait until I have some minis of my own to take camping!

    This map would be the perfect addition to my home!

So far we’ve been to a little village in Costa Rica, Barbados, and the San Juan Islands. I think next on the list is Argentina. My husband’s grandpa used to go down there to explore and do some fly fishing :)

    LOVE this! We did a tour of the west coast this summer in our RV and it was awesome! I would love to go to Australia if I could (without the RV of course).

    I faved it in Esty. I think this would be cool to hang in the RV. It needs some serious decorating. LOL!! Thanks for the giveaway!
