Shall I go to the left or shall I go to the right? This is the only decision that I have to make in the last two months depending if I just go for a walk or have to buy something. The map shows my neighborhood and the places I’m visiting during the lockdown.
During quarantine I spent 35 hours, over a period of a week, creating a junk journal using the ephemera from my 50th birthday trip to Paris. (This was 11 ½ years ago!) The trip solidified our love affair, and we married a year later. We kvelled as we reminisced about our two weeks of bliss.
This map shows small cafés, restaurants and shops in my neighborhood which I love very much. They all are located along one street named Leipziger Strasse. During the Covid-19 crisis these small businesses are having a hard time. So I think is very important to support them through this difficult time.
This is a road trip across France over 3 days I did last year. I drove from Evian in the French Alps to Castets almost on the West Coast of France to house-sit for 2.5 months in a typical house lost in the middle of a pine forest.I love road trips! I never get bored on the road, I can just stare all day at the landscapes changing along the way. On this occasion I left the mountains, drove by ancient volcanoes, through agricultural lands and wineries to end in the Landes forest near the Atlantic ocean and its long and wild beaches. It was great to experience the different landscapes of my own country and it makes me want to visit more of it and get lost in the small roads in the countryside.
A beautiful place. Architecture, art, and food, of course....
12 days, almost a full circle around the coast, active volcanoes, great beaches, amazing architecture, and most importantly, delicious food!
After a month of quarantine I finally managed to commemorate my latest holiday. I've been collecting and admiring map illustrations for ages and I thought isolation is the perfect time to give it a go myself while exploring watercolor as a medium. Big thanks for all contributors here for the inspiration!
*The map is a bit distorted, with the island slightly squeezed on the north-south axis to better fit the layout, thus the lack of scale indication. The yellow dots illustrate either overnight stays or important day trips/transits.
A couple years ago I was lucky to travel on the Gotthard Panorama Express scenic train across the alps with my family. This really is a must-do trip in Switzerland and I just wanted to pay a little tribute to these great memories. Plus this was an excuse to try new techniques and to draw trains.
