This place is special to me because I recently moved from Chicago IL to Galway Ireland which has been a huge change of scenery. I try to walk down to this area of the city at lest once a day because it is always such a calm and beautiful place which never fails to put a smile on my face.
Welcome to my neighbourhood! The South part of Amsterdam is known for its 1930's Architecture called the Amsterdam School. I feel so lucky to live in this beautiful area, I love to walk or bike around to discovering new details every time. This neighbourhood is very lively, with the Architecture Museum, the Art House Cinema and lots of cute Café's. Every other year this area hosts the International Sculpture Biennial with larger then life sculptures decorating the streets. I hope you enjoy this walk as much as i do, have fun!

This place is special to me because it’s the city where I arrived as an outsider, and left as a local. The map depicts “My Leeds” — the landmarks which helped me navigate the city when I first arrived as a university fresher, and the bars where I spent many incredible nights into early mornings. Known as “the London of the North”, Leeds grew out of Britain’s Industrial Revolution, and its rich, diverse history is reflected in the vibrant and eclectic city we see today. From elegant victorian shopping arcades and architectural splendour, to boozy bar-crawls and toe-tapping music venues, Leeds has plenty to offer the wide-eyed country boy when first moving away from home. No matter how many times I return to this city, there’s always a quirky new bar or restaurant to add to the extensive list of interesting places on offer, and although I may not currently live there, I always consider it to be home. Included in the map are not only the places, but the people who made this city an obvious, unquestioned choice for my favourite place — a place “where there’s music, and there’s people, and they’re young and alive” (The Smiths, 1986).
This place is special to me because it was where I spent my 20s. I came to Wellington, New Zealand as an international student; and this place has greatly influenced who I have become. The city center is compact and everything is within 2km walking distance. The people are friendly, there are many places to eat and explore, and if you are lucky you may spot a Kiwi bird! I hope my map inspires you to consider Wellington as your next trip. We often say "Nothing can beat Wellington on a sunny day!" I love you Wellington. And thanks for the memories.
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.
Over the last few years I visited all these places in beautiful Switzerland. I felt in love with the lakes, gorgeous mountains and historic towns. This little country has everything what I fancy: chocolate, cheese, stunning nature and maybe the happiest cows in the world.
