This place is special to me because...it’s isolated, you can only reach it by airplane or boat, and it’s sorrounded by salty seas, a hidden gem in the Gulf if St. Lawrence. There are over 300kms of white sandy beach to explore, the biggest skies you’ll ever see, often dancing with colourful kites, because of all the wind! There’s history, great seafood, artisans, and the most spectacular views. You can walk for hours on a beach and never see another soul, or you can go cave-surfing, kayaking or just chill. The moment I set foot on this archipelago it stole my heart, I actually cried when it was time to leave. I bought a charm of the islands, and it hangs around my neck everyday, to remind me of the “bliss” I found here, on the “Maggie’s”.
This place is special to me because it recently became my new home :) Best known for its famous beer festival, Oktoberfest, Munich has much more to offer than just beer and lederhosen!
I moved to Munich recently and my family will visit me soon for the holidays. Because I wanted to show the beautiful side of Munich, I created a map to share the main attractions as well as some of the more local hidden treasures :)
This place is special to me because it's where I spent the most significant parts of my childhood. The map follows a food theme mainly, outlining the cafes that I've spent time in and tried different cuisines from. Pune's rich heritage and culture reflect in Kalyaninagar with The Aga Khan Palace, a historic monument and now a museum. Making this map made me nostalgic, taking me back to the lush, green grass in Jogger's Park and the chilled Kulfi(Ice cream- on a stick) from Punjab Sindh Dairy.
This place is special to me because it's the place where I spent the happiest hours of my life. Napoli and its magical harbors. From the former fishing village of Santa Lucia, you will reach the small marina at Borgo Marinari at the foot of the enormous Castel dell'Ovo. Here is the small, nondescript trattoria Castel dell'Ovo, also called O'Tabbaccaro, which serves delicious fish and seafood dishes. You sit directly at the water, the boats rock, in the background the ever present Vesuvius. Gorgeous! Here you will also find the street musicians who go from restaurant to restaurant and accompany the meals musically, often accompanied by loud songs of local guests. From Borgo Marinari, along Via Francesco Caracciolo, you will come to Villa Communale Municipal Park, where you will find the marine biology institute Acquario. From there, to the west, lies the picturesque harbor of Mergellina. On the way, you can visit two of the best pizzerias in Naples: Gino Sorbillo Lievito Madre al Mare and 50 Kalò. Arriving at the port, treat yourself to a delicious Neapolitan caffè and a babà at Chalet Ciro.
This place is special to me because I live close to Barcelona and I am a cat lover just like so many other people!
It’s incredibly relaxing to drink coffee around locely fluffy cats, which all are adoptable, by the way!
There’s also another place in that map where you can adopt and foster cats as well, I just enjoy the hard work and big hearts of these people.
I also enjoy the arts, so it’s no wonder why I also enjoy seeing the fun huge cat sculpture made by Botero and I also enjoy going to the MNAC (Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya), I get inspired by great artists and get to find a few cats in some paintings.
Barcelona is a wonderful place, rich in culture and full of kind people. I recommend everyone to visit this city!
This place is special to me because it makes me feel inspired. This map shows my favorite independent bookshops in London. Books are many people’s safe space. These really special bookshops made me feel home in a new city when I first arrived, and I’m sure they delight many others everyday!

This place is special to me because it describes my journey of relocating to a new city after living in my home country for 27 long years. The initial challenges and explorations are what this illustrated map is all about!
I and my partner [whom I call "Bunny" and is depicted as one here ;)] arrived in Melbourne in mid-year 2019. Melbourne being voted as one of the best cities to live in the world, we were very excited to discover the new city and somehow we managed to have a fair bit of it in the initial few months; from watching a footy game at the Marvel Stadium, watching penguins at the St. Kilda Pier to seeing KAWS at the National Gallery of Victoria. The crucial part was to find a place we could call our "Home", but after hopping from my sister's place to an interim Airbnb location and finally after a month finding our own house was a journey worth documenting. We were exposed to many different areas of Melbourne during the house-hunt in just one month of our arrival and eventually ended up exploring very interesting places and having some amazing experiences on our way.
After a few months, all I can say is - " Melbourne took my heart! "

"This place is special to me because after my graduation from University where I studied foreign languages, I had the opportunity to live in Bordeaux for almost a year. There I met very kind people and a beautiful culture. These are the places that marked my experience, that I showed my family when they visited meand that will last forever in my mind. I would have added more but the space i didn't have more space! :) This watercolor map is my first one I hope you like it and I hope to do more maps!"
