Portland, Oregon, US
Visit seagulls at the beach, bison at the park, parrots on Telegraph Hill, Claude the albino alligator at the Steinhart Aquarium of the California Academy of Sciences (and tons of other wonderful wonderful animals!), and lots more critters across the city on this guide to San Francisco's animals! Though this map does depict some (real) major streets and freeways, it is not to scale, so the distance between these places can be misleading, and all references are approximate.

San Francisco is a very cozy city. You can buy chowder soup in Fisherman’s Wharf, sitting beside the bay area and watching Alcatraz Island. Walking in Union Square and taking Cable Car. Passing through the small hills, there’s Golden Gate Bridge’s firework show on evening. Everything in here are wonderful and comfortable!

The east side of Amsterdam's harbour, behind the Central Station, has become THE place to be, with cafe's, restaurants & clubs suddenly appearing all over the place. Many tourists will not know all these places. Included in the map are all the addresses! Although most places are to be found on the internet - now you can jump in a taxi with the address and go have fun!!
I based the composition on two main features of the city: a map of the 'T' line (the rail network) and the 'Freedom Trail' (a red brick path around the city). My aim was to capture the fun and variety within this history-rich place and the variety of colours offered by the green parks, brick buildings and harbour.
I know that Labin is not famous or big, but it's very quaint and historical small place...and it's my hometown! If you ever come visit this place It'll be my joy to give you a guided tour and tell you all about the legends and stories of this town :D
I trekked this circuit last year and was blown away by all the different views I encountered. I especially liked the hand painted trucks that belched out clouds of smoke as they weaved amongst the goats and struggled up the Himalayan roads.
From the palace the streets go out like rays through the houses and the huge forest- that is why Karlsruhe is also called "the fan city". The sights are from 18th century onwards. It's a little piece of heaven where you can be in touch with nature, feel like royalty in the royal garden, and still be in a very contemporary city.
The outdoor food markets of the Netherlands are what I miss most when I am abroad. Tourists are lured to awful places and never seem to make it to the real thing. So I thought I should show you a few - and the best Dutch Treat to have when you get there ;)
