On a trip tp Corfu, we discovered this donkey rescue, where they care for donkeys that have been rescued, or that have retired. People always swoon over horses, but these donkeys stole my heart and take the top spot in my heart for equines! They're super sweet, love a cuddle, and get to live out their years in a place that cares for them very well.
I always like to research about the cuisine or the food trail of a particular destination before I travel. So for the PLAY ALONG prompt, I decided why not research about Grecian food trail. Thessaloniki is the "Gastronomic Capital of Greece " because of the variety of informal dining it offers at reasonable prices. I have categorized the food in this illustration as street food and food that can be eaten in a taverna( a Greek restaurant or café). This food trail is specifically designed for those who have a sweet tooth just like myself! Also the girl in this illustration is an avatar of myself who likes to document her travel experiences. Koulouri is a sesame seed-crusted bread ring that is popular all over the country, but they originated in Thessaloniki. Trigona Panoramatos are triangular-shaped folds of buttered phyllo pastry, baked until golden and hollowed out when cooled and dunked in syrup. The crowning glory is when they get filled with pastry cream and topped with chopped almonds. Tsoureki, a brioche-like sweet bread topped with flaked almonds that’s mouth-wateringly delicious on its own. But the locals give it a deeper level of decadence with a melted chocolate coating or a chestnut filling. Koulouri, Trigona and Tsoureki are best served as street food. Bougatsa,a phyllo pastry with a semolina-cream filling dusted with icing sugar and cinnamon and a Greek coffee. There are savoury bougatsas but the sweet version is king and completely Thessaloniki. Greek Halva is a semolina pudding with nuts and raisins. Bougatsa and Halva can be best enjoyed inside a tavern. Did you know that Halva is called Halwa in India and it’s a delicacy which is served in Indian homes during religious ceremonies?
One of my favorite travel memories is a hiking trip I did through the Greek Islands. While it's hard to choose a favorite stop, Naxos might be it. From the amazing seafood and beaches to it's impressive mountainous terrain and mythological importance, Naxos is a spot worth adding to your dream destinations.
Oia (pronounced eea) is a beautiful coastal town on the Greek island of Santorini. Known for its wonderful blue and white buildings along with awe inspiring sunsets but did you know about the windmills & wild cats? A place I’d love to visit to see for myself.
This map shows where in Greece some of the most famous Greek myths took place. Greece is a big country with so many islands. I thought it would be nice to be able to place those myths on a map. I chose to create a colorful map because Greek myths are often very passionate, colorfully and flamboyant! It can be nice, while visiting actual Greece, to remember where some of the most famous of its myths took place.
Travelers who go on solo adventures often talk about how empowered they feel when they return from a trip. They usually come back a new person with a fresh perspective on life. Solo travel represents freedom, independence, and of course wanderlust. As part of Illustrator’s Circle, I wanted to bring a series of solo traveller illustration.
My favourite place to go is always open, easy to get to and there is plenty to do!! Welcome to My Imagination - Home of Endless Possibilities!! Relax, get comfy and stay awhile - the view is pretty memorable!!
Detroit holds so many special memories for me, and it is definitely my happy place! I went to college in Detroit, and met so many diverse and incredible people from all walks of life while exploring downtown. From the incredible food to the numerous galleries and venues, it is a city that you could spend days exploring and still not find all of the hidden gems in it. I adore my city and to see it being a place of growth and a thriving source of creativity makes me so grateful to live here and feature it as my happy place.
Queen Bee Coffee Shop has become such a happy place for me.
Alicia and Micah are so welcoming, so nice, and SO supportive of the local community - including my own ways of trying to give back! I've asked a few places over the years about starting a Drawing Club for kids, and have gotten mixed responses that have all ended up as thanks but no thanks.
When I suggested it to Alicia and Micah last year, it was an instant yes. Bring it on, let these kids come to a free drawing night once a month, do what you need to do. I heart these people so much because they just make Queen Bee Coffee Shop feel like home to me!
If you've been to Queen Bee Coffee Shop in the square in McDonough, Georgia, can you find all the bits and pieces of Queen Bee I worked into this piece?
