This place is special to me because this is the first capital city I visited when coming to the UK (I grew up in France) and this is where I first practiced my English where everyone speaks with a typical accent! I later lived in Edinburgh during my studies. Edinburgh is such a unique town, I love the sound of bagpipes and the smell of roasted malt !
Kapana is a small walkable district in the town of Plovdiv. Its history dates back to the 16th century, when it was the merchant and crafts center of Plovdiv. A few of its streets are actually named after the craftsmen that practiced there for centuries: Zhelezarska Str. (Blacksmith Str.), Zlatarska Str. (Goldsmith Str.), Abadjiyska Str. (Coat-Tailor Str.), Kozhuharska Str. (Fur-Tailor Str.). The name itself (Kapana) means “trap” or “labyrinth”. And it’s well-deserved too — one can easily get lost in its cobblestoned streets that always meet at peculiar angles. Having lost its liveliness since the mid-20th century (the streets being mostly packed with parked cars), in the past few years the neighborhood has been revived again, largely thanks to Plovdiv's nomination for the European Capital of Culture 2019. Today Kapana is the colorful heart of Plovdiv — a social place with an artistic spirit and unique atmosphere.
Kagurazaka is my absolute favorite place in Tokyo! They have a variety of restaurants, cafes and shops that sell authentic Japanese stuff, and plenty of traditional architecture, such as Akagi shrine and Zenkoku temple. It is the perfect place to hang out with your friends and enjoy the lively atmosphere!
This place is special to me because I lived in Washington for 6 years and fell in love with all of the local wineries, breweries, and distilleries. Wine was made throughout the state but many vineyards had tasting rooms in Woodinville, so you could experience what the whole state had to offer. This map is just a few of my favorites - there are really too many to include. Since we have moved away, we haven't found anything quite like Woodinville!
Last spring I visited Niagara Falls for the first time and fell in love! Here are my top recommendations on what to do, see and eat! Admittedly you could skip one or two of the Tim Hortons Coffee breaks, but why would you want to?
I visited Chiang Mai Thailand last December and I just instantly fall in love with this beautiful and relaxing city. I love the mountains, the trees, elephants, food and shopping! I use yellow as my main colour as the colour of yellow reminded me my favourite noodle soup from Chiang Mai: Khao soui (Curry noodle soup). I love illustrate map because it bring back the happy and beautiful memories if the subject is the country or city I've visited before or give me hope and expectation if the subject is the country I've never visited before.
Sometimes my wife and I just want pie and coffee. Whether the pie is savory or sweet. Whether it is brunch or early afternoon. Whether the coffee is a light or dark roast. So here is a map listing 8 of our "go to" pie places in Vancouver Washington - places that are usually guaranteed to have something yummy for our pie-holes.
I grew up around the city of Philadelphia, and I have really fond childhood memories of going into the city with friends and going on a "Cheesesteak Pilgrimage" as we fondly called it, where one of our moms drove us to all the well known cheesesteaks places so that we could rank our favorites. I illustrated a map of all the places that we went to, so that others would be able to enjoy the pilgrimage as well. :)
There are so many wonderful wineries around the finger Lakes, that I decided I'd like to see if we could take a family friendly staycation this year. Turns out there are so many things to do! I couldn't possibly fit them all in, but I did draw a few of my favorites that are now on my must see and/or do list.
I illustrated this map for TheNosher.com to accompany a detailed Food Guide to the Jewish Food of LA, which was co-produced by The Gefilteria. With this map, I wanted to illustrate the great diversity of Jewish food in LA, from Ashkenazi classics like bagels and challah, to Persian Jewish kabobs, Yemenite kubaneh bread and Israeli markets.
