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?
This place is special to me because my husband and I go to Cabo every February. It's such a magical getaway, full of delicious food and drink, generous hospitality and natural beauty. I created this map to highlight a few of our favorite places, but there is so much more to discover!

Set in the Mule Mountains in Southeast Arizona near the border Bisbee boasts the longest highway tunnel in Arizona and what was (and may still be) the largest open pit mine in the world at 300 acres by 900 feet deep.
The Lowell area of Bisbee is slowly falling in to it.
There are also over 2,000 miles of mining tunnels under and around Bisbee.
This was a once in a lifetime trip that I have been planning for years. My husband and I traveled from Minnesota, USA to Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and then to the North Island of New Zealand. These were some of the highlights from the trip.
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.

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.
This map is a sample taken from the 380cm x 210cm panel, which I made for the Banca da Conceição. This place is a small and lovely store that sells books and local artists' works. It is located in the superquadra 308 Sul, which is considered a model city quarter in Brasília, with an urbanistic project by the architect Lúcio Costa and landscaping by Burle Marx. Also included in the project are the church of Nossa Senhora de Fátima, better known by the brasilienses as Igrejinha, which was designed by the architect Oscar Niemeyer and has the external walls covered with tiles by the artist Athos Bulcão.
So if you go to Brasilia and want to know a little more about the history and architecture of the city, do not forget to visit the Igrejinha, the 308 Sul and the Banca da Conceição!
Esse mapa é um recorte do painel de 380cm x 210cm, que fiz para a fachada oeste da Banca da Conceição. Na verdade, a banca é uma pequena e adorável loja que vende livros e trabalhos de artistas da cidade. Está localizada na superquadra 308 Sul, considerada quadra modelo de Brasília, com projeto urbanístico do arquiteto Lúcio Costa e paisagismo de Burle Marx. Também compõe o projeto da quadra, entre outros, a igreja de Nossa Senhora de Fátima, mais conhecida pelos brasilienses como Igrejinha, que foi projetada pelo arquiteto Oscar Niemeyer e tem as paredes externas revestidas com azulejos do artista Athos Bulcão.
Portanto, se você for a Brasília e quiser conhecer um pouco mais da história e da arquitetura da cidade, não deixe de visitar a Igrejinha, a 308 Sul e a Banca da Conceição!
