I'm fortunate enough to live close to London and have always enjoyed its delights, from historical, gastronomical, theatrical and musical. I'm hoping that every month throughout 2017 I will submit a map here on TDAC. It will mostly be of world cities but I may go off at a tangent depending on how I feel !
London is one of my favourite places in the world. I think I can go there many times and I never will be tired of it! I always discover news places to visit, new shops, new pubs, new expositions, new things in the markets... For me, London is a new but very well known city everytime I visit it. It's a place to lose yourself, to enjoy every step you walk, to go with friends, with your partner, even alone... I love London!

My hand drawn memory map of a great day spent walking the historical cobblestones of Salem, Ma. It was a fun-filled day, with tons of walking, exploring, and just taking in the sights! The “witch” history was definitely explored, I loved the history, and the Peabody Essex museum was a highlight! a room full of “figureheads” in all their glory in front of huge domed alcoves...beautiful! I just loved the city, and the best lobster roll ever at the Lobster Shanty! I even threw in the Devils Run, because I hope to run it someday. A beautiful, historical, whimsical city core, I would definitely visit again.
The weather was perfect for me, hot & humid, with a salty breeze to cool you off, I hope my map captures the fun & historical atmosphere of this wonderful city!
