When you wanna see a breathtaking mix of old tree alleys, beautifully landscaped gardens, rare plants and historical buildings bathed in golden light then join us on a long and relaxing walk through Schönbrunn Gardens in Vienna. Schönbrunn, the former summer residence of the Habsburgs, can be translated as "Beautiful Spring" and oh yes, this couldn't be more true.
Every single time we are in Vienna, we spend hours strolling through the gardens and walking the zigzag path up to the Gloriette where you have an amazing view over the whole city. And for sure everybody will see us behaving like a Crazy Plant Couple when we enter Palm & Desert House and admire thousands and thousands of exotic cacti and plants. Not to forget: Empress Sissi's spirit will give the whole walk a very royal touch!
A Walk Through History. Kenley ,a small village in south London is full of beautiful woods and walks. I have lived here for the last 10 years and enjoyed this place very much. Kenley Air Field has fascinated me. Its an excellent area to walk and explore the history of Britain. This RAF Air Field was actively used until the late 1960.It played an important role in WWII and a lot of the original blast pens and bunkers still stand proudly to this day. Now this Air field and the runways are used by the Surrey Hill Gliding Club. The area around the air field is open for public use. We run, walk, jog, exercise, ride bikes ,walk the dogs and more. On a good day its perfect for a picnic.as you enjoy your sandwich and a drink you can also watch the gliders take off and land.
Chatsworth House and Gardens has many visitors from all over the country, but it also has a beautiful estate where there are many areas to walk. One of my favourite walks is along the river to Beeley village, you walk across two beautiful old bridges and then a climb up to the hilltop. From the Emperor Waterfall and the Hunting Tower you can enjoy fantastic views right across the Estate.
If you want to experience a day of ASP student, here is a map to follow through. This a typical daily walk from back in my days Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk. In the cold winter days, it was really hard to leave the house for the itchy cold. My day starts with a run to the classes, and of course deadlines. After the classes I used to go to get coffee and work in one of my favourite cafes in old town, Drukarnia. I was walking through the Basilica, where it is always windy in front. Always. Somedays, my road was changing to stop by some friends' houses, but usually ends up with a cup of coffee. And of course, if you do not share a drink with friends in a Scottish Pub, the day does not count and you need to start all over again...
One of my favorite walks in any season is through the historic village of Kinderhook in upstate New York. The village was home to the 8th president of the US, Martin Van Buren, and today has a great mixture of history, agriculture and art. The center of the village is very pedestrian friendly with sidewalks and a bike/walk trail that takes you on a quiet stroll past orchards & farms.
Here’s a map of the 218 km I walked through Spain, following the last part of the famous “Camino de Santiago”, or Way of Saint James.
An amazing experience through breathtaking landscapes, sun and rain, meeting people from all around the world.
This map shows the sites to visit while wandering in the historic center of the southern France city of Aix-en-Provence. You can walk in those streets for hours! I've been living myself in Aix-en-Provence for more than 11 years and I still get lost in those small streets! That is why I didn't draw a geographically accurate map. You do not visit the historic center of Aix-en-Provence with a map, there are too much small streets. You just wander and the monuments will be there, awaiting for you. It's always a discovery, but you are sure these sites are great to visit and the general style of the center, with those extremely old buildings, is so romantic. When you finish, you can have a nice view over the mountain called Sainte Victoire and have a break eating the sweets of the city, called Calisson. That's the proper end to your walk! I've left the names in French because they are proper nouns that you cannot translate (Albertas, Rotonde, etc.) or they are transparent words (such as cathédrale, place...) so it gives a little French charm, but the reader still understands. For this "provençal" map, I chose a sketch style that, in my opinion, testifies the best of the atmosphere of this city that has a very artistic History (city of Paul Cézanne, Picasso lived only 15 km away in a village). I tried to recreate the wonderful colors of Provence, the sweet nature atmosphere.
This is not a typical glorious walk where one might discover sunshine and greenery, nor the smell of blossoms and summer breeze. This map is a walk of memory and history.
Considered as the last fishing village of Hong Kong, one of the best way to immerse oneself amongst the historical ambience of the village is to take a 20-minutes boat ride. The collage style of the map is a representation the bits and pieces and present imagery of the village. Stilt houses with programs that ranges from residential homes, restaurants to abandoned huts. The village is a complex mixture of new and old, past and present.
Here is my map of my renewed appreciation for the green spaces surrounding the town that I live in. This town used to be the centre of British glassmaking. Now, only one glass cone survives in Wordesley, which you can walk to along the canal towpath. Stourbridge is surrounded by green belt area and you can walk from one green or wooded area to the other easily on a nice day, ending the day with the best fish and chips you will ever eat. You are always sure to make dog friends with a few good boys along the way!
La calle 20 de noviembre es una vialidad emblemática de la ciudad de Durango, México. Alrededor de esta se encuentran edificaciones antiguas que son un gran atractivo para pasear y admirar su arquitectura.
A few weeks ago, my husband and I took a self guided historic walk, downtown Springfield. The walk, "The Lenski Walk", was included with our renewed membership to the Westcott House. Lois Lenski was a Springfield native, writer, illustrated, and contributed to 98 children’s books. To make the walk even more interested we created a challenge, we would each create artwork inspired by our walk. He took some amazing photos which can be seen on his blog, https://www.jeremymuddphoto.com/blog. And I created my first fully digital illustrated map.
The map takes us into the beloved 'Baug'(Park) of the Baroda city, that was developed more than a 140 years ago for a benevolent king for the people of his kingdom. It points out all the heritage structures housed in the park along with the wonders that embellish the park. It also draws out on personal experiences as well and brings out the true nature and ambience of the park.
