skimbaco We are going through some travel mementos to frame. We always save maps, and tickets, and collect small things like match boxes, rocks, sea shells and soaps. And I always save the champagne cork from special moments. We found this Paris map from the memory box today. I'd say it's so well loved that it still can not be thrown away 3d
  •   skimbaco @danefarm I love that! We once wallpapered our son's room with aviation maps of the area where he was born. We were sad to move out. And had hard time selling the house 2d
  •   skimbaco @wanderingcarol that's a good thing 2d
  •   skimbaco @touristvision perfect use of old maps! 2d
  •   danefarm @skimbaco I bet it looked great! I figure we're staying here, have 3 kids and a dog that bang up the walls already... What's a couple hundred pin holes in the wall? Ha ha ha!! 2d
  •   skimbaco @danefarm my kind of thinking. Although we've lived on rental houses for the past ten years because moving so often, so not as possible. Now when we bought a house, I'm ready to fill the walls again 2d
  •   dipaolamomma I love décor that evokes memories! That's the highest form of art. 1d
  •   skimbaco @dipaolamomma I have a photo of @a_travel_girl holding this very map in Paris, I'll frame it next to this map! 1d
  •   dipaolamomma Perfection! 1d

skimbaco Diffusing Abundance today through some grilling sticks I love the cinnamony scent, and it keeps me working even on Saturdays! Next week's #globalmappin theme on Pinterest is natural living, and we touch base a little bit about essential oils too. @leighinessight will be co-hosting our live event on Monday with me.
Wonder what Global Mappin is? It's a Pinterest project (and Pinterest marketing company) started by @thetraveltester and me. We host a live Pinterest event every Monday, and pin about a specific theme for full one week. You can join us by starting your own Global Mappin board so we repin from it, and you can participate to live events on Pinterest on Mondays. We have fun prizes too

skimbaco One of my favorite tropical destinations: Bali and the St. Regis. I wish I could go back soon! Do you like to go back to destinations where you've been or go to new ones? I like to discover new places, but my list of places where I want to go back is also pretty long! #skimbaco 7d

skimbaco This week I am focusing on everything tropical! I co-hosted our Global Mappin Pinterest event today with @thetraveltester and we have so many tropical ideas on our board now! On my site: how to get the tropical look for home. One trick is to add tropical flowers or succulents. #skimbaco 1w

skimbaco Good morning from Wildwoods, New Jersey. @moreyspiers invited our family to celebrate Father's Day here, and we've already had so much fun. I didn't know what to expect, this is my first time in Jersey Shore, but the beach is gorgeous, and not growded at all. The #moreyspiers amusement park on the boardwalk is much larger than I thought, and it was a great place to hang out with our teenaged kids last night. The amusement park, and the entire town has such a cool retro vibe, you feel like transported back in time. #hosted 1w

skimbaco Instagram travel Thursday picture from Lloret de Mar, a beach town in Catalonia. My friends sort of named it as the "Jersey shore" of Spain. Not my favorite beach town in Spain, but enjoyed my time nevertheless. I've actually never been to Jersey shore, but I'm going tomorrow for a quick Father's Day trip with my family. #igtravelthursday #skimbaco 2w

skimbaco In my ideal world, I would see the sun rise and set everyday. It's maybe a simple thing, but I feel my days are not lived as fully as I could when I don't see the sunrise and sunset each day. On the evenings I curse these trees, and the power lines blocking my view. Tonight I just decided to be thankful to see the colors, the sky and just trust the sunset I didn't really see was spectacular too. That's how life often is, you just have to have faith the rest of it is amazing too, even when you only see a glimpse of it now. #skimbaco moment of today! 2w
  •   hallflowers I completely understand this. Beautiful shot! 2w
  •   emelyakar Great shot 2w
  •   globecalledhome That sounds like from the book Wild - "How could I be poor if I see the sunset every day?" Have you read it? 2w
  •   skimbaco @globecalledhome no! Now I have to! 2w
  •   jlcoombr That is a very eloquent sentiment. // I was just researching Paris for a long weekend, and ended up reading one of your articles. It was nice to be like, 'hey, I sort of know that person!' 2w
  •   skimbaco @jacque.co that's nice to hear! When are you heading to Paris? You'll love it! 1w
  •   jlcoombr Thanks! Yeah, we are taking a 6am flight out of LHR on a Friday and returning late Monday evening for a full four days in the City of Light. Really looking forward to it. 1w
