This place is special to me because San Felice Circeo is where I grew up. It is a magical little town just 100km south of Rome where you can do anything you want:from hiking to diving to taste some real Italian foodies! You are surrounded by the sea and immersed in the forests of our National Park! if you go to Rome, you cannot miss spending a day here
This place is special to me because...it was living in “cottage” country, and working at a resort! How great to be able to kayak in the early mornings on a beautiful lake, I learned to sail a catamaran here, mountain biked 1000’s of km’s, skiied and met my husband here, I crashed skiing, major concussion, I ate a mogul😝and he was a ski patroller, the rest is history. I miss our tiny log cabin in the trees, but not the flying squirrels that often ended up in the bedroom, and once in the bed😝. It was an amazing decade spent there, truly blessed, the fondest of memories.
This place is special to me because...it’s isolated, and there are 300kms of white sandy beach to explore, and the only way to get here is by airplane or boat! It’s windswept, the big skies are often filled with colourful kites from the kite-boarders. You can walk for hours on a beach and not see another soul, the food is great, the people are friendly, the vistas are amazing, lots of history to explore, and amazing artisans to visit, what’s not to love? I cried when i had to leave, the Maggie’s stole my heart, so much so, I wear a silver charm of this beautiful archipelago around my neck to remind me everyday of our wonderful time there💜
Mayne Island is a special place for our family. It's only a short drive and ferry ride from our place but once you arrive you feel like you're a million miles from home! It has beautiful rain forests, a peaceful environment, sea life and earthy living which makes it just right for a restful getaway. My map is a handmade watercolour painting which is my favourite way to render artwork.
This place is special to be me because Tiong Bahru, a quaint old neighbourhood tucked almost south of our busy Singapore island, is the perfect place for the kinda day when I needed to spend some time by myself or with a friend or two and not knowing exactly yet what to do. This is because Tiong Bahru has good bits of everything--local food galore, independent bookstores, art galleries, Instagrammable wall murals, vinyl music store, local fashion labels, temples and many more hidden sites. The neighbourhood is almost entirely in Art Deco architecture. Being there is like taking me back in time, when days were longer and time was slower. Awesome!
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 :-)
This place is special to me because I grew up there and I know it by heart. Truthfully working on this map made me realize how special that neighborhood really is with all it's possibilities for social activities and general standard of living. I'm very grateful to have been able to grow up there. So therefore this map is my way of saying thanks. :)

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 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... growing up I used to love eating at Milk Bars. These diners were like a 🕑 time-machine for me. They offered a rare insight into the everyday life under Communist regime. Luckily, some of them are still open and operating. Have a look at the map, pick a place and go!
You plan to visit Vietnam but don’t know where to go first? You stay in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) for a short time and there are too much places to go? Let’s me take you to the central districts of Saigon, where includes almost every famous attractions of the City.
Saigon is the old name of Ho Chi Minh City, the biggest city of Vietnam. However, the local citizens there prefer calling this city as "Saigon" as it sounds more friendly. If you don't want to walk, the city cyclo tours take you around the central districts of the city. You can admire the modern city with lots of historical buildings. You can enjoy different types of local cuisine in the markets. Vietnamese coffee and Pho (beef noodle) are always the signatures. And also, as called as a "Never-sleep city", you can take part in the beer parties with your friends at the Western-walking street at night. The local beer tastes fantastic and cheap!!
Just go and enjoy your awesome trip there!
You know you want a wide selection of wonderfully weird things to do in Austin, Texas! I lived in Austin for years, so the city is near and dear to my heart. There are so many wacky things to do in this place. From the funky goodness of South Congress to the Cathedral of Junk (made of...yes...junk) to Chicken Poo Bingo, Austin has a totally unique vibe. My father attended graduate school at UT in the 70's, and I'd get to visit the campus with him occasionally. I grew up on Willie Nelson and Schlotzky's. I worked in an art gallery on 6th street after college and fell in love with my husband in those years. We've taken romantic strolls through Laguna Gloria, played mini-golf at Peter Pan's under the giant T-Rex, and held hands while moonlight snorkeling at Barton Springs. The whole city makes me feel young and in love with happy memories! Seeing the bat colony rise into the sky at dusk is something you should see at least once in a lifetime. And don't skip Uncommon Objects...they have everything you don't know you want yet. Do you hear that, taxidermied tiny alligator wearing a party hat? I'm coming for you. Shiner Bock ice cream from Amy's will be the perfect end to any day. Happy Austin-ing!
This place is special to me because it illustrates a place of growth and integrity for me and many others. It is a place many students call home throughout the academic year and is the place I will get to accomplish my goals of getting both a bachelor's and master's degree from
