As a vegetarian in Providence I have plenty of wonderful options for a meal out, including numerous restaurants that cater solely to vegetarians! However, my husband is an omnivore so it's extra special when I find a place where we can both get a meal we're craving. I left out my favorite exclusively vegetarian restaurants—they can get a map all their own!
There are so many good choices around here that I had to constrain them to an area of two square miles in order to cap the list at ten. This is an ode to dishes that have captured my heart.
This place is special to me because it reminds me of my childhood. When my family moved out of state, my sister and I still remained close to our mutual best friend from our hometown in upstate NY. Though we didn’t see each other often, we could always count on spending one magical weekend together in the summer! Every summer my sister and I would spend a few weeks visiting our grandparents just south of Lake George, NY. Conveniently, our best friends’ grandparents had a cabin just north of Lake George. So naturally, Lake George became our spot! Martha’s Dandee Cream was always the drop off/ pick up spot, and from there it was a weekend filled with mini golf, theme parks, arcades, and kitsch statues (it was’t until years later that I realized not every area has these weird old theme park statues running rampant)! Now that we are adults and have cars of our own, our meeting spots have changed, but every once in awhile a drive through the village of Lake George is on the agenda and it’s retro charm never disappoints!
This place is special to me because for the world, it’s a major tourist destination but for me, it was a short term workplace that made me explore the place beyond its beaches and churches. All the sights marked have been discovered on my way to the office or to the printing shop
, or just grew out of the need to escape on a fine weekend. And they’re my favourite spots to show-off my tourist friends visiting Goa the second or third time around. The city feels mine. Like I’ve known it for longer.
This place is special to me because, it is the small, charming part of the city I like to escape to. As a kid, I practiced my bike riding skills here, in my teen years I used to visit the beaches and the parks with friends, as an artist I still like to take inspiration from the buildings and streets. I enjoy the sights, history and multicultural elements. The Istanbul Biennale usually takes place on locations listed here on the map. Sometimes I like to sail here or just take the ferry for 30 minutes to enjoy some fresh seafood. There are many things to explore and enjoy when you visit the Büyükada in Istanbul.
This place is special because talks to me about the mediterranean people and our way of life. Sometimes it’s and easy path through the trees, the most quiet place on earth and it’s all calm and peace of mind. Sometimes it’s narrow and hard and climb it’s a tough thing. This is a strange windy brave coast, with only a few small beaches to get some rest, but it’s worthy to do the walk and celebrate every stop with some fresh good food and nice chat around the table. Enjoy the way!
I live in a beautiful coastal town on the east coast of Australia, 4 hours north of Sydney. There are lots of walks and places to see amazing native vegetation in the surrounding areas but my favourite is the one that follows the coast, and in the right time of the year you can even spot the annual whale migration.
This place is special to me because it’s charm and delicious food stole my heart. One of the first things I saw in Charleston was a happy family of dolphins swimming in the harbor, which is something I had never seen before. New experiences like the wildlife made me feel connected to this small city. As we looked over the menu at Fleet Landing I saw a heron outside who was also looking for its dinner. I wanted to make this map highlighting the food we had in Charleston because of the people behind the food who cared about what they cooked and the experience they provided. The restaurants and landmarks I illustrated are just some of the many great places Charleston has to offer.
This place is special to me because it's my secret winter escape. OK, maybe not so secret as thousands of snowbirds have discovered it as well. I love Tucson not only for the fun breweries, tasty eats, farmers markets, cool shops, and fascinating historical sights but the city is surrounded by nature. To the north you can hike at Catalina State Park and Sabino Canyon, to the east and west you'll find both sections of Saguaro National Park. When hiking you may be surprised to find the desert teems with life like hummingbirds, phainopeplas, hawks, roadrunners, ringtail cats and javelinas. The cactus wren pictured here is the state bird of Arizona. Hope you like my map! :) Come explore the desert!
This place is special to me because it’s emotionally connected to the memory of my youth. I discovered Berlin at a time when I was figuring out who I wanted to be, so every corner evokes intense emotions, memories and life expectations. I have recently moved back after ten years (who would have thought!). Reencounters can be a little bittersweet. The city has changed a lot, and so have I, but I am pretty sure it still remains one of the big love affairs of my life. Here goes a bit of the old and a bit of the new Berlin, some of my favorite places to share with the many visits you receive when you don’t live in your country of origin. Hope you enjoy the walk!
This place is special to me because I live in Amsterdam Eastside, which is the most amazing colourful neighbourhood. With colourful I mean there are people of so many cultures living here, it's wonderful. And the last couple of years many students have come to live here too, which means it's the most lively area you can possibly imagine!! You can get food and foodstuffs from all over the world and cafes and restaurants everywhere....see for yourself....
This place is special to me because this is where I've grown up! Bengaluru, known as the Garden City of India, is located in the south of India and is known for its pleasant weather all year round. It is a beautiful combination of history and everything modern. It is also the IT hub of India and is also known as the Silicon Valley of the country. The city's pleasant climate, its tree lined streets and the presence of many beautiful parks such as Lalbagh and Cubbon Park makes it the Garden City of India. This illustrated map takes you on a trail around the various historic structures, the beautiful parks and lakes and some of the legendary eateries in the city.
This place is special to me because it is the birthplace and home to a woman who means the world to me, my mother. Despite being born and raised in this town, I've never really got myself 'that familiar' with it. Probably because of the many years being out of town for studies. Listing out the places of interest was quite challenging and I think that is normal for a lot of us when it comes to extracting such information from one's hometown; how ironic. Sure, you frequent its traffic, you rush through that one hidden gem on daily basis, you may know every turn and corner like the back of your palm but to get that sense of 'this town is touristy enough', that may need some work. My secret is to turn to TripAdvisor. That way, I get to learn to see it from a different perspective. That's how I see the hidden gems - that's how I realise there's a lot to re-learn about this little town we call home. So here is a little introduction to Klang from my side.
