Melbourne, Victoria, AU
This place is special to me because, no matter what the season, this gorgeous valley in the Australian Alps has me enchanted with its ever-changing colour palette. From snow capped peaks in winter to golden leaves in autumn, it is my favourite place in the world to hike with my dog.
This place is special to me because it's one of the most magical place in the world and it has changed my life! I have met people there that have been so inspiring and I've experienced so many great things that it literally influenced the way I live today. I've been living a nomadic life for 6 years now travelling across 4 continents and nowhere else in the world have I seen so many pristine beaches and native wildlife in such a small area. Can you believe there are more than 100 beaches in less than 160km (100miles) of coast?! And how about meeting kangaroos, wombats, cockatoos, dolphins, whales and many more birds and animals almost on a daily basis?! You thought that would be it but you can also see powerful blowholes, impressive waterfalls, visit significant cultural places, eat at great vegetarian cafes, hike in the bush, surf... A friend of mine living in Huskisson one day described it as "living in Paradise"... well I totally agree on that!
Olmsted Falls, Ohio, US
This place is special to me because Australia is a place that both fascinates and terrifies me. Sydney is the capital city of New South Wales and is mostly safe from all of the deadly critters that call Australia their home, though maybe you'll catch sight of a kangaroo on one of the city's golf courses. Sydney is also home to one of the most iconic buildings in the world: the Sydney Opera House. Along with catching a performance there, visitors might decide to participate in the Sydney Harbor BridgeClimb if they're feeling daring. Sydney, Australia is also the setting of one of my favorite Disney films, "Finding Nemo".
Port Macquarie, NSW, AU
I live in a beautiful coastal town on the east coast of Australia, 4 hours north of Sydney. There are lots of walks and places to see amazing native vegetation in the surrounding areas but my favourite is the one that follows the coast, and in the right time of the year you can even spot the annual whale migration.

This is the community I live in and love. Full of amazing people and beautiful places-the natural landscape rules here and we are so blessed to raise our children in such a magical place. This map is a labor of love for my place, inspired by my 4 year old's gift for "I Spy" and my endless wanting to collage everything I touch-Meigs Co. Ohio is truly a wonderful secret!
This was one of my favourite walks and stuff to do when I was living in London. You can do the walk in an hour or so...if you walk fast, or you can make it into a whole day thing by visiting some of the museums, sitting in the park, indulging in the buzz around Harrods and spending your last pennies at the cafe's on Walton Street.
I'm so happy to be here! I really enjoyed to see all participants works.I drew Miyajima Map. My home town is Hiroshima,in Japan. Miyajima is an ancient beautiful small island in Hiroshima. I wanted to show you the beauty and friendly atmosphere of Miyajima.
