This map of Ogunquit,Maine was created for a client, who grew up moving around a lot - but found this small seaside town to be the one constant in her life. It features many of the places close to her heart, including Perkins Cove, the Art Museum, the bakery and the beach!

I met the love of my life when I was eight years old. We were highly imaginative children, and are still to this day storytellers and world designers.
This is my hometown, the town in which we met, and the places we once played and how we imagined them.
Playgrounds as fortresses and castles, pools as lakes, bleachers as mountains, etc...
I think most artists were extremely imaginative children - I hope it brings back memories for more viewers than just him and I.
This is a map 'depicting' one of my favourite vacations ever! We spent 4 days & 3 nights aboard a Maine Windjammer, the Stephen Taber 1871. It was a dream come true, and far exceeded our expectations; to wake up in your cosy cabin and smell the wood fire from the cookstove, and the food...oh my...gourmet dining & fine wines on the seas! A small crew & group of travellers, what a wonderful time, we were the only Canadians aboard, but made ever so welcome by our fellow American travellers! No electronics, just the sea, scenery, sights & sounds, occasional boat races. A surprise night of kettledrum music & partying ashore, fishing villages visited, during the day! It was heart-breaking to have to leave. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend this boat for a 3, 4 or 6 day cruise! not for the faint of heart, you really are stepping back in time! The vacation that "DNS- as Captain Noah said, "does not suck".

Rich with natural and man made heritage, Mongolia is a vast country, home of the largest equestrian statue in the world- it's 40 m tall and depicts Genghis Khan on horseback. It is also a country of many dinosaur discoveries, singing dunes, hot springs, ancient Buddhist monasteries and palaces.
Nara, a city near Kyoto, is a perfect city for day-trip. As Japan's capital city during Nara Period, it contains many historical Buddhism temples (including Todaiji - world's largest wooden building). Deer wander freely around near Nara Park.
Tourists usually arrive at one of the railway stations (JR or Kintetsu), and then walk around the east part of the city to visit temples and deers. There are some Nara foods along the way.
Royal Chitwan National Park is the first national park in Nepal. It was established in 1973 and granted the status of a World Heritage Site in 1984. There are many precious animals, they are rhinoceros, yak, gharials, leopard, elephant and danphe etc., so it was the most impression part of my first visit to Nepal in 2014.
