This place is special to me because of the wonderful chilhood memories I have there. I grew up in Brussels and I remember my weekends being full of museum visits, bike rides and waffle breaks. What inspired me the most to create this map was to think about all the places I go to when I have international friends coming for a short visit and I have to introduce them to my hometown in only a weekend. You can be sure that food is always a big part of the experience!
Edinburgh is a special place to me because it's my second "home". I've been living in Edinburgh for 12 years and 3 months now and so many sweet and sour memories happened in this beautiful city and shockingly I have never illustrated anything about Edinburgh before. That's why I decided to illustration this beautiful city as my second entry for this competition. I use to working in one of restaurant in this map for 4 and half years as a professional chef before I turned my career into professional illustrator. My first Children's menu commission job was commissioned by one of the most delicious burger restaurant in Edinburgh and it's also in this map. All the locations I decided to illustrated in this map are my favourite location in Edinburgh. Maybe one day when you have chance to visit Edinburgh you can use my map as guide!
Low Moor is the neighbourhood I grew up. I have fond memories of growing up here. As a kid, me and my friends loved playing out, having adventures and riding our bikes round the area. We only stopped playing for dinner time and the ice cream van! We actually used to have walkie talkies in case anyone spotted the ice cream van a few streets over and could alert everyone else! The "big wheel" is an iron monument in the heart of the neighbourhood which commemorates the local iron works heritage. We use to hang out here and try to climb it! The big puddle was HUGE and we all used to ride our bikes through it! I have fond memories of the church too. Before it was turned into flats, the hall used to be the hub of the community with kids clubs and events. Even though my family weren't Christian, we were still very much welcomed there.
I lived in Portugal 20 years ago and Lisbon was a city of which I have many fun memories. I'm FINALLY getting back for a visit in a few months, so I'm trying to remember the old (like CENTURIES old) faves, as well as check out all the new things which have appeared in recent years (hello vegan sushi and drag queen cooking classes!). Staying in a 5th floor walkup with no elevator, so I'll be sure to work up an appetite for eleventy million pastéis de nata.
This place is special to me because I have moved to Trier from Moscow 2 years ago and i have totally fallen in love with this place. Trier is over 2,000 years old – making it the oldest city in Germany with an astonishing 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. There is a lot to see in downtown Trier with traces of the Roman times almost everywhere you look. The city is often referred to as the “Rome of the North” because it served as the key city of the Roman northern territories. There are many beautiful vineyards located around Trier which are perfect for taking walks. But there’s plenty of nature inside the city of Trier as well. Old trees rise among the historic buildings, casting welcome shade in the summertime. Trier has a special atmosphere all of its own. It is an ancient city but young at heart.
This place is special to me because I love art. Paris has everything for the art lover. I mapped down the top beautiful museums that feature the works of famous artists like Leonardo Da Vinci, Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet and more. Impressionism, which is my favorite art movement, found its origins in Paris.
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.
Discover Mullion. Situated on the west coast of the Lizard Peninsula this village is surrounded by beautiful Cornish landscape and abundant wildlife. Seeing that the main demographic is over 60 it's not a surprise that garden safaris, scarecrow trails and coffee mornings feature prominently in village life. However, that's not to say Mullion hasn't anything else to offer, on the contrary! Alongside these activities you can get out and walk the coastal paths, taking in the magnificent views from the cliffs and harbour, go surfing and kayaking from the popular beaches of Poldhu and Polurrian, visit a chocolate factory at Trenance, get in a round of golf at Mullion club before treating yourself to a lovely cooked breakfast at Colroger Deli and then perhaps a quick pint pulled for you at the Old Inn. If after all that you'd like a quiet sit down why not visit the historic 15th Century church St.Mellanus, and be inspired by the craftsmanship you'll find in the carved wooden pews.
The map shows all my favourite spots to walk dogs in the North of the city of Oldenburg in Germany. There are forests, lakes, moorlands, and little villages. I added shopping facilities or cafés where you could warm up after a long walk, use the toilet, or get some water for the dog(s). You can also see my home on this map.
This place is special to me because of the magical feeling you get when you visit Inverness. I travelled there this month with my boyfriend and we loved it. The wild nature is magical itself with lots of trees of different kind everywhere. It’s easy to understand why they have so many stories about magical creatures. Although I didn’t see the Loch Ness monster it wasn’t disappointing, the lake is beautiful and so it was the Ness Islands and all the old buildings like the Chanonry Point Lighthouse or the ancient stones of Clava Cairns. My favourite story was the one about two men who spent the night in Tomnahurich partying with two fairies, the next morning they found out that a fairy’s day was equivalent to a hundred human’s years as they turned into dust when they stepped out of Tomnahurich.
