Lake Wolfgangsee, Austria by Mercedes BrandstätterStrobl, Salzburg, Austria
Frankly, usually there isn't a lot going on in an Austrian village. The place I grew up in is all about the lake and the mountains surrounding it - and so is this map!
PS: You might know lake Wolfgangsee from the intro scenes of "The Sound of Music".
Although, should you ever meet a local, he or she probably wouldn't even know the movie :-)
Pushkar, Rajasthan by Moutushi SarkarNew Delhi, Delhi, India
An oasis, a legendary holy lake in the middle of the desert, colourful people, camel fairs, 2000 year old temples, pure (and awesome) vegetarian food (due to religious Hindu rules), travelling musicians, peace and quiet. Its all here in Pushkar.

Newport Harbor, California by Hilary SlaughterNewport Beach, CA, US
Just moved back home to my favorite sunny beach city, Newport Beach. Most outdoor activities involve the ocean and harbor, so it's definitely a must to enjoy warm beach weather and the smell of the salty ocean breeze!
Aurora, Illinois: City of Lights (and Playgrounds) by Jennifer L. WambachAurora, IL, US
Aurora, Illinois has the distinction of being the first city in the United States to install electric streetlights in 1881 and is also home to the most excellent Wayne and Garth. But as anyone with young children at home knows, none of that stuff matters much to them. Instead, I created this map of my hometown from my kids' point of view and included all their important landmarks: ice cream, giant dogs, construction equipment, cows, corn dogs, eagles/seagulls (to anyone under 5, they're the same thing), helicopters, chickens, and most importantly, playgrounds.
Kreuzberg and Neukölln, Berlin, Germany by Anna MendesBR
In spring/summer 2015 I spent two happy months in Berlin, in Dieffenbachstraße, Kreuzberg. This map illustrates the neighborhood I´ve lived in where I point out some cool places. I also recommend to explore Neukölln, another young lively modern neighborhood full of interesting bars and cafes. I LOVE BERLIN !!
