This is the route to my favorite castle that I often go to. It takes about an hour from my house to that point, which is a good walking course :) What is depicted in this illustration is the things I found along the way. The route is a little bit complicated and I often get lost, so I always use them as "guides" to reach the castle.
The ‘24 Stops’ walk or also called Rehberger-Weg is around 5 km long, runs between Switzerland and Germany and links two of my favorite museums - Fondation Beyeler and Vitra Campus & Vitra Design Museum. Along the path are placed 24 sculptures, created by the artist Tobias Rehberger. The route runs through meadows, vineyards and you can enjoy a lot of beautiful sights. This is my favorite walk in the spring.
My favorite walking route is along Altamont Road, which sits atop the crest of Red Mountain and provides some of the best views in Birmingham. The majority of the road runs through Altamont Park, an undeveloped green space that, oddly, houses a WW1 cannon (topic for another time). Just past the cannon the sidewalk begins, passing by diverse, interesting houses - some hanging off the side of the mountain and others perched halfway down. Each one exhibits a different style, vibe and era, and I’ve included some of my favorites in this illustration. Throughout the mile-long walk, I enjoy gazing at the beautiful cityscape vistas of downtown Birmingham.
This is Croxteth Hall and Country Park. Once the country estate of The Molyneux family the Earls of Sefton. An Edwardian mansion with a Victorian walled garden, horses, highland cows, a farm, a cafe and lots of fresh air! I’ve walked there in every season but a brisk early morning winter’s walk is a must to see the vast acres of grass coated in a frosty shimmer.
In the fall of 2019, I walked the Camino de Santiago from Ferrol to Santiago de Compostela (known as the Camino Ingles). Highlights included taking a detour and meeting up with friends in the Fragas Do Eume, walking before the sun rises, and making many cat friends along the way. Also just past Bruma, inexplicably, there's a dinosaur by the side of the road. It was a great experience and I would like to walk a longer pilgrimage one day.
A walk from home, discovered during the first UK lockdown when we weren't allowed to drive anywhere for exercise. Good news: the ice cream parlour was open for refreshments. Bad news: the pub was not.
My home away from home, the British Virgin Islands! Sunday mornings were hiking days and I had a few lucky occasions to join in on the fun. Walks in the rain or even getting caught in the bush without a machete still bring up fond memories. One small hike even brought us to a kayak spot for a little trip around the bay. With the help of our fearless hiking leader, this map was created as the group continues to hike around the island and provide me video and photo updates while being locked in Colorado. I can’t wait for our new adventures!
Salvador...It’s my birth and childhood city, where I lived until move to São Paulo. I have the fondest memories about places I used to go with my parents. Small (great) pleasures. This is what my inside child remembers of a ( today) very chaotic but super beautiful and charming city. It was the first capital of Brazil, what makes it unique in many ways.
