It was 2009, and I had traveled to Italy with my mum. We’d seen many highlights like Rome, the Colosseum, the Vatican City, and, for a memorable experience, even stayed in a convent with resident nuns.
Though something I was most looking forward to was my dream of hiking the Cinque Terre. And why wouldn’t you (dream of the chance)? Set amid some of the most dramatic coastal scenery on the planet, these five ingeniously constructed fishing villages have captured hearts worldwide.
A Unesco World Heritage site, the Cinque Terre is a series of centuries-old seaside villages on the rugged Italian Riviera coastline. Colorful houses and vineyards cling to steep terraces, and the Sentiero Azzurro cliffside hiking trail links the villages and offers sweeping sea vistas.
For something I had been dreaming of my whole life, I got there and nearly cried. Not because I was overwhelmed with the joy of being there. But because my camera wouldn’t turn on. The battery was still on charge in the hotel room, and if I went back to get it, I wouldn’t have time for the hike.
Wall Art Prints: Where to Buy Beautiful Travel Canvas For Your Walls
8 Years Later …
Despite the fact that I don’t have any photos from my time in the Cinque Terre, it ranks as one of my travel highlights. One of the most beautiful places I’ve been and one of the most memorable things I’ve done.
8 years on, Mike and I quit our life of full time travel to buy a house and our previously sold stuff. And one of the first things we did was shop for travel prints for the walls. We wanted something to brighten the house up. And I hate bare walls!
While there are 79 pages of incredible travel photography you can buy as a canvas from Wall Art Prints, it only took me a second to decide. The travel print I wanted was staring at me right there on the third line.
I ordered a huge 150 x 100 cm of Magical Manarola, Italy; a town which, despite not having been able to take pictures myself, left a lasting impression on my mind.
Wall Art Prints
Wall Art Prints is one of the largest Australian online art galleries, with stunning artwork they will print for you to hang on your walls. Their diverse and carefully chosen art collections span a wide variety of genres and styles, though there is a huge section for travel photography, over which travel nerds will rejoice!
To help you navigate the 79 pages of possible travel prints, you can search by color, shape, or perhaps you have a particular destination in mind. When you do choose your print you can then select from up to 8 sizes.
Having chosen the second to largest size, I was very eager to see how it looked when it arrived (you need a high quality image to be blown up to that size).
Review of the Product
I was giddy with excitement when the package arrived – the product was a beautiful premium canvas, wrapped around a kiln-dried wooden frame, with exceptional depth of colour, and a sharp image. It’s seriously divine!
Delivered stretched and ready to hang, it looks like it belongs in an art gallery instead of my kitchen / living room wall. And even though we have an over-head skylight, all of their products are coated for protection against UV light (and dust damage), and are guaranteed against fading and warping for 20 years.
Canvas prints are a great way to add colour, depth and texture to any room. Since my first canvas print arrived, I’ve gone back for further shopping to find beautiful travel art for every wall!
