This place is special to me because this is where I used to spend my summer vacations as a child and teen. I always stayed in my cousin’s house. It was an adorable typical little house. Ericeira is a small and lovely village. Is a very calm, charming, typical fishing town that is situated along a coastline of outstanding surfing beaches. Nowadays, and because of the boom of surf lovers, Ericeira is a nice fusion of Portuguese heritage houses and atmosphere with a cool surfing ambience, where traditional fishermen’s cottages live amongst trendy lounge bars and cafes. The fresh smell of the sea is all over this place. It’s truly just wonderful.
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!

My boyfriend Jim and I have been visiting the Lido di Venezia since the mid-90s! This year we took my sister Salli. We swam and cycled every day. We also took little trips into Venice (a 10-minute vaporetto ride away!) to visit the Biennale and see the sites.

This is a map of some of the buildings that house bee hives on their roof tops. There are many more and bees are thriving in cities around the world. Many restaurants in cities are now making rooftop gardens and creating safe feeding stations for bees and insects, creating bee hotels and placing hives to use their own honey.
This is a map of our local music festival. It takes place every year in mid July and is located on the Gurten, our local mountain. You get to the festival by taking a small rack railway or by hiking the 3.6 km and 300 altitude difference.
The Isle of Mull was one of our favourite place in Scotland! We spent two days exploring the island and had the time of our lives…
The beautiful town of Tobermory (house to the only whisky distillery on the island) was a favourite! But we also enjoyed smaller less touristic areas such as the Isle of Mull Weavers yarn factory and the lovely Isle of Mull cheese farm…
