Come along on my recent trip to Yellowstone! Follow the dotted path to see all the wild, surreal, majestic sights I saw. Drive slowly and carefully to spot the wildlife along the way, and be patient; bison might hold you up in traffic halfway through the trip. Happy travels!
Make Tracks: 15 Walks around Lichfield and surrounding villages in Staffordshire, UK by Bryony HalstedBurton on Trent, Staffordshire, GB
I decided to share a book cover design I've done called 'Make Tracks' which is about short walks around Lichfield and surrounding villages in Staffordshire. The format was portrait, so further illustrations of local Staffordshire village scenes and pubs fill the remaining space!
Arizonans know how to find water - whether it's a secret spot on a river or lake, or in a public park. My favorite place to recharge my batteries is in a park nearby. I like to watch the birds, take my dog for a walk, and enjoy all the flowers! Springtime is perfect for watching migratory birds and celebrating local flora.The prickly pear cacti have beautiful flowers, the saguaros wear flower crowns, and the ironwood trees turn an amazing lavender pink.
One of my absolute favourite places to escape to is Cubbon Park, also known as the lungs of Bangalore. This green haven was originally created in 1870 and called Meade Park. It was renamed after Major General Sir Mark Cubbon, the longest-serving commissioner of the city. The park is spread over almost 250 acres and is a treasure house of beautiful and exotic plants, including gorgeous bamboo groves. It is a hot spot for nature lovers, joggers, bird-watchers and cyclists. The park is a major reason why pollution levels remain low in the city centre. A trip to Bangalore is incomplete without visiting this little piece of heaven!
I live just by the South West Coast Path, which hugs around 660 miles of the English coastline, from the rocky cliffs of North Devon, through Cornwall and over to the gentle waters of Poole in East Dorset. At least once a week I walk this path. The Golden Cap is the highest point on the south coast of England and I have looked over to it as I walk the coastline near my home in Devon. I recently I climbed up and down the grass clad, golden cliffs of the Cap to the top. The sky was azure, hawks, and a helicopter circled below me and people on the beach were no bigger than grains of sand. The Golden Cap features in my illustration of Dorset, like a bright beacon, shining its light over the deep blue sea.
Swimming here is my absolute favourite thing to do! Living in London it is a such a treat to be able to swim outside, under a big sky and surrounded by nature.
My local lido is one of my true happy places and it is particularly magical swimming in the off season of early spring. It's a true London oasis, a beautiful 50m pool backing onto Brockwell Park. It is hard to believe you are stone's throw from the urban buzz of Brixton and Herne Hill. I'm not hardy enough to go in without a wetsuit until the dial hits 18 degrees C. The warm-up hot chocolate post swim is one of my essentials.
My Happy Place is the Rhein Riviera in Basel. Here at the river banks is the place where the life happens and everybody gathers. I enjoy the Riviera all year long - to walk when it is cold or to sit there after a swim, grab a drink and some food, draw, play board games, listen to an improvised concert or just to look at the river and the hustle and bustle inside it.
The NC Arboretum is a beautiful place with lots of trails and lovely gardens, but this is my favorite walk to take there with my sweet Josie.
To me, Antarctica is the most special place on earth, because of its indescribable beauty and remote location. I can't find words to describe sitting down on the beach at Desolation Island and watching penguins come and go, so busy in their daily activities. The peace and serenity are matched only by the cool, clean air. Oh, I'm ready to go back now!
The pond at Ooms Conservation Area is a great place to spend some quiet time walking, observing nature and sitting down with a sketch book or easel. The area has several walking trails that meander up and down the hilly meadow. At the top is a gazebo and benches for resting and taking in views of mountains and the pond below. In the summer, the meadow is full of milkweed making it a haven for monarch butterflies. The site is great for observing wildlife such as bluebirds, blue heron, eagles, beaver and turtles.
The first swim after a year of the pandemic was magical. I planted an herb garden, having discovered that deer don't like aromatic plants. Bring on the salads! Watching the first Hummingbirds arrive after their long migration is always a thrill.
Hiking the Nevado de Toluca is an amazing day spent ... I live an hour away from here and every time I get the chance to spend a day here I cherish it. Even that time I got caught in an electrical storm (jaja). Anyway, if you are into hiking and around DF check it out!
I wanted to explore travel illustration a little further so I participated in a Skillshare Class with Esther Nariyoshi in illustrating a boarding pass! Unable to travel and with the British weather being drizzly, I often dream about being back in Kwazulu Natal. 13 years ago I flew to Durban (where my mum was born) to visit her side of the family. We went to Durban, Zululand and Umhlanga Rocks, where we stayed at Game Reserves, Hotels and my great uncle's farm.
I love to bike ride through Crissy Field. It is definitely one of my happy places. I love the plentiful, free parking. I love rolling down the bright green grassy hills with my kids. I love visiting The Warming Hut Bookstore & Cafe, waving to the seabirds at Torpedo Wharf, and then hitting the San Francisco Bay Trail on a bicycle.
