My husband and I live in a remote mountain valley in Eastern Oregon with our German Shepherd pup and our kitty. We are always looking for beautiful walking spots with lots of steep hills (so that our puppy can get all of his energy out). This loop is the perfect mix of challenging hills made worth it by breathtaking views of the valley. It is a great loop to run as well. On especially beautiful days it is worthwhile to keep climbing up through the huckleberry and rosehip filled forest to the top of the hill where you can linger and take in the 360 degree views of snow capped mountains and Ladd Marsh.
This map shows a small circular route round a beautiful part of North Bristol. I live locally so it's wonderful to celebrate its beautiful history and architecture as well as its niche independent shops, bakeries and restaurants.
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.
During this stressful time of quarantine, my mother has suffered from high blood pressure and cabin fever--two things that don't mix well. I didn't realize the severity of her health issues until we tried to walk around the lake at her apartment complex, a walk we had done many, many times before, and realized that she could hardly make it around anymore. Everything on the walk felt like a danger. I documented those dangers--and my fear for her-- in this map.
Kaas Plateau also called as the 'Valley of Flowers' is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Satara district of Maharashtra. Over 850 varieties of flowers bloom here after the monsoon season every year.I got a great sense of satisfaction after I ticked it off from my travel bucket list. Within a 6-7 km radius walk one can find over 25 different species of flowers. Some flowers even bloom once in 7 years! The plateau is a sight to behold with various shades of pink, purple, magenta and yellow.
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.
Yaowarat Road is well known for one of the best street foods in Thailand. There are varieties of food such as noodles, seafood, desserts, and drinks. Prices are reasonable. Business hours are from around 5:00 pm to midnight. One lane of the road is closed especially for pedestrians. I often go there on weekends. Unbelievably there are many street food vendors who received Michelin Guide awards. It's so fun and so fulfill.
My favourite walk is a local jaunt that takes about 30 minutes. Along narrow pathways surrounded by trees and filled with a diversity of wildlife. The changing of the seasons means there’s always something new to discover. Chattering birds, sheep that pretend to ignore you, hungry ducks and a pair of Swans, who return each year to nest. A large, fluffy Maine Coon walks up and down the road, greeting anyone willing to stop and stoke it. There’s also a historic, manor farm with a dovecote, the building and grounds of which have been used in film sets and for Shakespearean productions during the summer months.
I drew this map about Tianhe District in Guangzhou. My undergraduate university is in Guangzhou, so I spent four years here, it was a wonderful time during my life, now I just want to draw and share this amazing place to all you guys. Tianhe District is the CBD of Guangzhou, which is the commercial center and entertainment center of Guangzhou. On the other hand, it is also the cultural center of Guangzhou. Not only just have Guangdong Museum, but also several famous universities in Guangdong Province. In addition, Guangdong cuisine is also gathered here. Shuttling through the streets of Tianhe District, you can enjoy all kinds of Guangdong cuisine.

Walking through the historic district of my hometown is a magic experience full of stories, old cathedrals, sea breeze and the joy of it's people. I recommend to start this tour at sunset and finish it with a cool beer at night. Hope you like it!
For this illustration theme, I chose one of my favorite walks in Griffith Park, Los Angeles. From the Greek Theater, at the base, this is a short and mellow walk to the Observatory’s deck, where beautiful panoramic views of the city await you. For a much longer jaunt, you can continue walking towards the famous Hollywood Sign or simply explore any of the countless trails that Griffith Park has to offer.
This gem settles in the city’s heart, with astounding nature and local fauna. If you go in the late afternoon, falcons, coyotes, deers, and even mountain lions might say hi!
