Custom Star Map from Modern Map Art

French novelist Gustave Flaubert probably said it best ― “Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world,” and I couldn't agree more. The thing that I love most about traveling is the humility it gives you. When you go out for an adventure, you realize just how vast the world is and how insignificant your silly problems are. On top of that, I'd like to think that it has also deeply strengthened our bond as a couple.

Our love for adventure is probably the one thing that my husband and I enjoy doing together the most. We love to travel and explore new places because this is when we always manage to find our common ground. We might argue on the silliest things, but I especially enjoy debating with him over where to go next and when to plan our vacation.

I’d like to think that out of the countless adventures we've experienced together as a couple, nothing still tops the day we decided to get married.

It was not a grand wedding at all, but I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way because all the people who matter where there to celebrate with us. And what better way to relive this very happy moment than with a custom star map of the night we got married? I discovered Modern Map Art online who prints stunning and incredibly detailed night sky at an exact time and place in history. It's perfect and I was instantly all for it!

I decided to select the biggest size they have available (go big or go home, right?) and finally found an inexpensive yet perfect frame the other day from Ikea. Now it looks absolutely gorgeous displayed in our living room wall. With my renewed love for art and documenting our travels with framed pictures, my gallery wall is really starting to take shape and has truly added personality to our humble home. It's such an inspiring space now!

You can check out Modern Map Art here. Aside from star maps, they also print quality country and city maps which can be a lovely and thoughtful gift as well for friends and family celebrating a special occasion like a wedding or anniversary.
