I love the village I live in because it is surrounded by nature. Just above my house, there is a path leading to an awsome lookout point (and a huge virgin overhanging the village as well -hence the potential redemption ^^). I often walk here, even more since the lockdown. There is no place I feel better than here, admiring the landscape amongst the trees. I love walking around the main street of the village too (ok ok, there is only one street :D).
In 2020, my life completely changed overnight. I gave birth to my beautiful baby. All the newborn checklists, pregnancy classes and books I read did not help and I had no idea what I was doing. Everyday seemed like a surprise! Good thing is that you learn fast. As a new mom, I learned fresh air and good naps are essential to good night’s sleep. So I, “my-neighborhood-is-boring” person, started strolling around my neighborhood with my baby and I have to say I quite enjoy it! Of course, huge part of the joy comes from seeing my baby busy discovering new things and the occasional nap is an added bonus! The map I illustrated shows the “new mom walk” I took with my baby around one of the parks in my neighborhood, the Englischer Garten, during the past year. Throughout the different seasons and weather, I discovered so many new and old things with my baby in this over 200 year old park.
This walk in another bit from the Green Chain in London. I used to do this walk to go to Eltham’s swimming pool but didn’t discover Vista field until I did that part of the Green Chain and I loved it. One of the things I like about London is that you can find hidden places where you don’t even feel that you are in the crowded London. You can visit Vista field and The Tarn and be alone. In Vista field you can see the famous London skyline and in The tarn you’ll be surrounded but the beautiful lake and a great variety of birds and plants. Eltham palace is very special as well, it looks like a place from a fairy tale with a bridge and beautiful trees.
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 the best way to walk and visit the city, his islands, beautiful buildings and bridges of the old town in Wroclaw. There is everywhere something to do, either visit the Panorama Museum, or buying some local food at the market. The cathedral has a fantastic view point to see the city and great stained glasses inside! Make sure you take a boat to discover the Odra river, and don’t forget to see the typical for Wroclaw culture dwarfs!
The capital of Poland has its' legends and its' icons. The Mermaid is one of the most famous icons. And very close to the inhabitants of Warsaw. The Mermaid has two monuments. One is located in the heart of the Old Town Square, the other - right on the bank of the Vistula River. The walk between them is a great opportunity to see the romantic part of Warsaw.
A walk around a nature reserve tucked in a northern city. These little woods have been the set for my children's imagination. During lockdown, they have travelled to deep dark forests, taken Winnie the Pooh to 100 Acre Wood, flown to the moon, stomped out a bear hunt and searched for treasure island.. We have seen birds and bugs, followed footprint trails and rabbit poo! Collected feathers, all the colours of leaves and precious rocks. Then watched the geese come and go. A lovely place for city dwelling babies.
This gorgeous area on the Southern California coast is home to some of the rarest pine trees in the world. It's a wonderful place for a walk, either on the bluff trails or along the beach.
Between Concord and Walnut Creek, CA, sits Lime Ridge Open Space for walkers, hikers, and mountain bikers to enjoy. It's wild land so we see coyote and snakes. A herd of cattle work 24/7 to keep the grass short to mitigate fires. We hike a 3 mile loop (our legs never looked so good). At the summit of this section we get views of Suisun Bay, three cities, a long range of high hills, and Mt. Diablo, one of the highest peaks in the region. Spectacular!
Stanley Park is one of the largest urban parks in Canada and is only 10 min from my home. There are a lot of things to see. My Favorite route is a walk from Second Beach to Brockton point. You can't miss the features on this way! Meet Raccons near the Lost Lagoon, the flowers on the Rose Garden , and see the view of the North Vancouver from the lawn close to the Brockton Oval. Some Restaurants , Vancouver Aquarium and other attractions are temporarily closed, but you can Enjoy the fresh air and the giants trees right now!
I have been born and raised in Rio de Janeiro. Copacabana is without a doubt my favorite place to walk. A place that I lived for many years and that is still my favorite today. The energy of the people, the beauty of nature, the explosion of colors was the reason why Tom Jobim named Copa The Princess of the Sea. Every time I need an injection of energy I visit the streets of Copacabana. Visiting Copacabana always makes me smile, makes me feel that life is beautiful and I always leave the city full of inspiration.
Below I leave the lyrics of Copacabana composed by the genius of Brazilian Bossa Nova, Tom Jobim and I invite you to listen to it. Enjoy!
Existem praias tão lindas cheias de luz
Nenhuma tem o encanto que tu possuis
Tuas areias, teu céu tão lindo
Tuas sereias sempre sorrindo
Copacabana princesinha do mar
Pelas manhãs tu és a vida a cantar
E á tardinha o Sol poente
Deixa sempre uma saudade na gente
Copacabana o mar eterno cantor
Ao te beijar ficou perdido de amor
E hoje vivo a murmurar só a ti
Copacabana eu hei-de amar
