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!
As the world’s first Garden City, Letchworth was created with both of those two attributes in mind. A place for hustle and bustle of city life with restaurants, coffee shops and all the local shops you’ll need, nestled in the expanse of green open spaces with trees, parks and leisure facilities all around.
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
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.
This map illustrates the walking trails right outside my backyard. The trails are an endless journey of gardens, fields, bugs, birds, ponds, streams and beauty.
I discovered this walk while doing one of the parts of the Green Chain walk in London. It was a surprise to me to discover the statues of the dinosaurs and the Maze. I had seen mazes like that in movies but never in reality so it was super fun to go inside and find the exit. The whole park is kind of magical and it is interesting to imagine the Crystal Palace which doesn’t exist anymore because of a big fire. The only parts remaining from the palace are the terraces and a tiny bit square but you can still imagine how big it was and how beautiful the place used to be.
One of my favorite things to do in central Izmir is to take a walk on the seaside or the central park, get some fresh air and grab a quick bite. Here is a list of my favorite dishes and places in walking distance.
This is a bite-sized walk, part of Portland’s amazing Trail system... it’s just enough for a quick dog walk, to see flowers, trees, birds, or catch up with a friend (there’s something for each season!)- A shot of nature nestled in our little city.
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.
Walking around Margaret Island is one of my favourite activities when I visit my home city, Budapest. It has a rich history dating back a millenium including tatars, Medieval monasteries, kings' residencies and poets. This beautiful park that sits right at the heart of the city, got its name from Pricess Margaret of Hungary. It's the one place where my family of four always go for a walk when we are in town. I love the story that unfolds through its landmarks and beautiful trees.
