I hand drew this piece with watercolors and ink pens. On the left half of this piece is a geometrically designed map of Poland. In the middle is the flag of Poland. The right half of the piece has four places that are important to me. The names are written in both English and Polish, and beside them are descriptions of why they are important to me. This piece represents my heritage and origins because I am the only member of my family who was not born in Poland and most of my family still lives there.
Hanoi is fascinating. Lots of lovely old buildings, parks, lakes, and great shopping! The water puppet show is really worthwhile and fun. The puppets are super cute! Hanoi is one of the best cities for coffee lovers. They have lovely cafes on every corner!
Although golf-like games were played in other parts of Europe as early as the 1200's, it is thought that Scotland is where the modern game of golf as we know it was invented. The first written mention in Scotland was in 1457 prohibiting the play of golf since it distracted from practicing archery, a skill used for military purporses. But the real spread of golf happened in the late 1800's when train service from London to Edinburgh was much improved. Golf spread across the British Isles and then further to the entire British Empire. Even with the expansion of golf courses worldwide, it is still a rite of passage for many golfers (professional and amateurs alike) to head to the wind swept coastlines of Scotland to play on some of the most famous courses in the world. This illustrated map shows just a few of these top courses.
I visited Orkney over 10 years ago and I still can't get it out of my mind, one of the most amazing places filled with history from neolithic settlements to shipwrecks, art and chapels as well as the most incredible seascapes and sea stacks filled with wildlife, can't wait to return!
