Kaas Plateau also called as the 'Valley of Flowers' is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Satara district of Maharashtra. Over 850 varieties of flowers bloom here after the monsoon season every year.I got a great sense of satisfaction after I ticked it off from my travel bucket list. Within a 6-7 km radius walk one can find over 25 different species of flowers. Some flowers even bloom once in 7 years! The plateau is a sight to behold with various shades of pink, purple, magenta and yellow.
As a family of 5, we love exploring all of the local (and not so local) outdoor hiking opportunities in and around Illinois with our girls. Spring Valley in Schaumburg, Illinois hits all the buttons for us: epic play area, prairies and trails lined with blackberry and black raspberry bushes in June and July, an awesome Nature Center, covered picnic areas, a heritage farmstead with animals and BONUS-- it is all FREE to explore and enjoy.
The map takes us into the beloved 'Baug'(Park) of the Baroda city, that was developed more than a 140 years ago for a benevolent king for the people of his kingdom. It points out all the heritage structures housed in the park along with the wonders that embellish the park. It also draws out on personal experiences as well and brings out the true nature and ambience of the park.
Yaowarat Road is well known for one of the best street foods in Thailand. There are varieties of food such as noodles, seafood, desserts, and drinks. Prices are reasonable. Business hours are from around 5:00 pm to midnight. One lane of the road is closed especially for pedestrians. I often go there on weekends. Unbelievably there are many street food vendors who received Michelin Guide awards. It's so fun and so fulfill.
Here’s another illustrated map from Mykadelica! Following on from last years map, in which I charted my route to my local supermarket, I thought I would show you what I saw when I was allowed to venture a little further... I spotted this squirrel while doing exercise in Regents Park - its darting around seemed to suggest an imaginary route known only to itself - so I decided to draw some of it!
My favourite walk is a local jaunt that takes about 30 minutes. Along narrow pathways surrounded by trees and filled with a diversity of wildlife. The changing of the seasons means there’s always something new to discover. Chattering birds, sheep that pretend to ignore you, hungry ducks and a pair of Swans, who return each year to nest. A large, fluffy Maine Coon walks up and down the road, greeting anyone willing to stop and stoke it. There’s also a historic, manor farm with a dovecote, the building and grounds of which have been used in film sets and for Shakespearean productions during the summer months.
This is based on the walk I planned for our 3 day Chicago trip and this map shows the walking tour we did on one of the days.
Sefton Park is a popular place for stroll within the city of Liverpool. Its bandstand was said to have influenced the Beatles song, ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’. The Palmhouse is an iconic Victorian glasshouse and the boating lake is home to a variety of ducks, swans and even herons. You must throw some coins into the waterfall pool at the Fairy Glen and make a wish -then go to see how many creatures you can find engraved in the statue of Peter Pan! No wonder it’s a family favourite place to visit on Merseyside.
Hectic Jakarta is the capital city of Indonesia, Many tourists treat Jakarta as an entry and exit point to Indonesia, but if you are passing through the city and have some time to spare then there are a wide range of attractions to enjoy from quirky museums to a variety of street foods. Jakarta is also a great place to learn more about Indonesia’s complicated history, and you can visit a variety of culturally and historically significant locations such as the old town and the port which will give you a glimpse of how the city would have looked in the past times. As well as harking back to the days of old, Jakarta is one of the most modern cities in Indonesia, and you can spend time embracing this cutting edge side of the city at its famous malls, bars, and restaurants. Jakarta may be crowded, loud, and busy, but it certainly isn’t boring.
Walking through the historic district of my hometown is a magic experience full of stories, old cathedrals, sea breeze and the joy of it's people. I recommend to start this tour at sunset and finish it with a cool beer at night. Hope you like it!
Every Sunday is a great adventure for the little twins! After a while exploring and discovering Sherbrooke's downtown, they defined an amazing circuit with incredible stops. As a token of their gratitude for this adventurous walk, they have added two stops specially for their parents. It can be a challenging walk, but at the same time very pleasant for the whole family. The twins highly recommend it!
