This place is special to me because of its importance in the history of Greece, its glorious nautical past that can still be glimpsed through the old houses and monuments. It’s the birthplace of famous sea-captains and heroes of the war for independence. It also has the best sweets made of almonds and orange blossom water ever. It’s one of my favourite places in the world :-)
I was adopted from China and moved to the USA when I was 8 months old. 14 years later, I travelled back to see the country in which I was born. This map is illustrating my return trip. It's certainly not a conventional map, as it is very personal to me and my story, but I'm proud to show it and give representation to other adoptees like myself!
This is my 'happy place' - Folkestone, off the South East coast of Kent, UK. It is such a vibrant hub of creativity and nature combined. You can stroll along the Leas overlooking the sea, or wind down through the pathways to the walk along the sea front. You can visit the Harbour Arm to listen to live music, sip a cocktail, eat from a variety of food trucks or just take in the view over the Harbour. Oh the Harbour! Watch the boats bobbing whilst walking over the disused but renovated railway track, with the beautiful cliffs setting the backdrop. Peruse the independent shops all along The Old High Street and shop at the local markets, and end the day watching a play at the Leas Cliff Hall. I have been visiting ever since I was little'un and it just keeps getting better. Every time I go there I just feel any worries washing away and I feel totally relaxed. It really is my special Happy Place.
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 grew up visiting Wales a lot, as my father was born there. I still visit Wales every year, sometimes twice a year to enjoy the great outdoors. Wales is not so well known by many people but it has such amazing things to offer, so I decided to make a map especially for the contest about Wales and in particular the south. I hope this map will encourage you to explore it as well and I hope you will enjoy it just as much as I do every time I visit.
This illustration is an autobiographical map of many of the places dear to me. It's got anything from stupid and fun things I did as a kid, to my girlfriend Meg & I buying our first house this year and doing it up.
And lots of tea, beer and coffee!
A map of Arizona, the Grand Canyon state! With jaw-dropping sunsets, and natural wonders, fantastic animals, and beautiful cactus of all shapes and sizes. Arizona is my home state, and I never get tired of exploring all the natural beauty and culture it has to offer.
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.
I live on the eastern tip of Long Island NY. We have more lighthouses in our township than any other in the US. Here are some of my favorites to draw, paint and visit. You can see them by car and boat. If you love lighthouses you should come visit!
