In this day and age where everyone is just itching to leave town every chance they get, it’s crucial to document your adventures via Instagram, or else it didn’t happen. But if we’re being honest, true globetrotters travel not for Instagram likes, but to feed the soul. If like us, you’re constantly thinking of where your feet will take you next then you need a map. Whether you’re on a mission to explore as many Philippine islands as you can, or visit the world’s fashion capitals before you turn thirty, we suggest you start ticking off places you’ve been to by pinning them on a map. We’re not talking about the world map you had from school, we mean a beautifully designed visual that you can use to decorate your room!
Check out Daydream Republic (@daydreamrepublic), a home and style brand launched back in April 2015 by best friends who love to travel. Now solely run by owner Sasa Bacani, she shares that the business idea was born in her room. “My mom always encouraged creativity in our house, and my bedroom ended up like a "me-seum", full of my travel and dance memories, matched with the quirkiest walls (before it was stripes, and now half of my room is a blackboard!). Looking at my room, I realized it would be an awesome life mission to help create more happy spaces, and encourage others to live a life of passion.”
Searching for a decent pinboard map proved to be a bit of a sitch as the nice ones are usually available abroad and cost as much as P5000, so Sasa decided to take it upon herself to give people a well-designed, locally-available, and reasonably-priced map. “I'm so fulfilled whenever customers tell me, "I've been looking for something like this for a long time!". I always knew I wasn't alone in this map hunt!”
