This place is special to me because this is the first place that I ever travelled to outside of the United States. The city is a beautiful place to visit because of all the attractions that exhibit the culture of Canada. Here I show some of my favorite places that I visited while there and would recommend to anyone who goes there!
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.
Situated in the midst of hills and vineyards Stuttgart offers the most beautiful views over the city from higher vantage points – to experience a tour of Art + Music one can just stay in the center and take a walk. I have drawn some famous sites and some personal recommendations such as a trendy jazz club and the café Teehaus. Don’t forget to eat a an iconic bretzel with butter!
This place is special to me because of it's rich cultural heritage and history. My map is inspired by Fraser's book Marie Antoinette: The Journey. These sites mark the dawn of the French Revolution, as well as the fall of the monarchy. Though some sites are marked by a statue and others repurposed, the architecture stands almost untouched by time. I love to imagine what everyday life was like for Marie and Louis, the nobles, and the commoners before those tumultuous times began. It's nice that tourists are welcome to mull over the history of the ancient city, and that we can drink the same tea and eat the same chocolates and pastries which delighted Marie Antoinette!
This place is special to me because I completely fell in love with the area, driving through it seven years ago. Then I met my husband and he also had a love for Montana (we are midwesterners so mountains are hard to come by). We recently took a trip to Flathead Lake and Glacier National Park, and enjoyed every minute! The mountains! The lakes! The wildlife! It's beautiful big sky country.
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.
Bondi beach is special to me, because It was one of the places I always wanted to visit when I was living in Europe. Now I am lucky enough to live in Sydney, very close to this iconic place. I find it absolutely amazing that I can go to the beach whenever I like and after 3 years I still feel like I am on holidays. What a great feeling! Why did I choose cockatoos? Because this noisy birds are all-around and they are absolutely gorgeous.
California`s Pacific Coast Highway is one of the most famous and scenic drives in the world. I`m so happy to share with you some of my favorite places on the section of the Highway 1 from San Francisco to Santa Cruz.
This place is special to me because it allows me to really experience what it means to be a Canadian. From the vast wildlife and foliage, to incredible sights in every direction you look, there is never a dull moment while exploring Banff National Park. The turquoise blue lakes are exceptionally picturesque. While the Rocky Mountains always offer challenging hikes that take me to new heights. Every trip brings new experiences, breathtaking views and unforgettable adventures. Downtown Banff has a delicious food scene and plenty of shops to spend hours perusing. There are plenty of activities for the young and old during any time of the year. This National Park is one of many Canadian treasures which I can’t get enough of!
