Reigate is a vibrant market town, very close to where I live, full of restaurants, bistros, cafes, boutique shops and entertainment. It has a beautiful park for all sorts of activities, which hosts outdoor cinema in the summer and an ice rink in the winter. It nestles under the Surrey Hills and the North Downs way for hiking. It is only half an hour from London and less than an hour to the sea!
With most of the tourist areas and beaches closed and a restriction on travel during the lockdown period in Cyprus, my family and I were only able to exercise outside within a limited distance from our home. As a consequence, we discovered some beautiful areas close to our flat that we had previously had no idea existed.
This is our walk route which is a little over 3 miles. It was a coping ritual that is now habit. We see gopher turtles, plumeria trees blooming, egrets, herons, ibis, spoonbills, wood storks, singing frogs and alligators, who is our friendly neighborhood map monster. We moved to Florida back in November and we love it here!
As a broke of college art-school student, here is my guide to save most of your money in Silver Spring, MD! You start off with your classes at the Cafritz center! After a long day of classes and drawing, you get a little hungry right? Here are your options - 711: Instant ramen, mini beef tacos, some chips and water; fine dining wouldn't you say? The Big Greek Cafe: They sell fresh Gyro's for only 5$ on Wednesdays! Kaldi's Cafe: Your main caffeine supply, if you get to know the baristas you might get lucky and get an extra espresso shot in your cappuccino. (shoutout Casen and Kathy) Fortunately for me I use to work at the Starbucks in the corner, so I occasionally get free food. Usually don't go there cause it's kind of a walk from school. (shoutout ash and rein) Or maybe you're ready to purchase some overpriced art supplies? Head over the Plaza Art Store and preemptively apologize to your wallet. (The people at Plaza are actually great staff that do their best to give you the best discounts, shoutout to Theo) Library is a pretty nice place to study; lots of window. Planet fitness, cause fitness is great. and that's about it
My current reality is walking. Walking and walking and walking my neighborhood. I see the changes that people are making to their homes and the flowers that are starting to bloom. The trees have gone from sticks covered with snow to green buds. The birds are new and the wildlife is preparing for their new families. I listen to podcast and wave to my neighbors. This moment holds a lot of beauty.
I’ve mapped where Dante and I go on our almost daily COVID 19 walks. With my iPhone in hand, I’ve documented most of our walks that’s full of botanicals on my personal home life IG @DanteMom. The walks is a chance for Dante and me to bond. I’ve called it daily homeschooled field trips on foot. The orange dotted line walk takes us approximately 30 minutes to walk with only 4500 steps on average. Hope you enjoy our neighborhood walk to the Westlake area in Daly City, California!
