Maybe I shouldn’t give away our little secret, but my home town of Fort Collins Colorado is a little jewel nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains. Our vibrant downtown is a great place to wander. Fort Collins is said to be one of the inspirations for Main Street Disneyland and you can feel the magic when you are here. Little shops, awesome restaurants, and street performers provide dynamic entertainment. Minutes away you can be connected to the Poudre River or extensive bike paths.
This is the route to my favorite castle that I often go to. It takes about an hour from my house to that point, which is a good walking course :) What is depicted in this illustration is the things I found along the way. The route is a little bit complicated and I often get lost, so I always use them as "guides" to reach the castle.
Where we walk - I spend almost everyday walking all around my garden. There is always something new to see. I check for newly emerging plants, things ready to bloom, even for insect or animal damage. I see all the interesting tasks I need to do. Walking all around there brings such joy!
Coyoacán is one of the loveliest neighborhoods in Mexico City. Its small town vibe makes it a great place to go on a date and have ice-cream, churros, coffee, or even cartoon pancakes! Start your walk in Francisco Sosa street, and cross the arch to enter Jardín Centenario. See the fountains and kiosk in Plaza Hidalgo, then continue until you reach La Conchita church and Frida Kahlo Park. Buy books at Elena Garro Cultural Center and visit Coyoacán's huge market. You can finish at Frida Kahlo's house or in the beautiful park Viveros.
The ‘24 Stops’ walk or also called Rehberger-Weg is around 5 km long, runs between Switzerland and Germany and links two of my favorite museums - Fondation Beyeler and Vitra Campus & Vitra Design Museum. Along the path are placed 24 sculptures, created by the artist Tobias Rehberger. The route runs through meadows, vineyards and you can enjoy a lot of beautiful sights. This is my favorite walk in the spring.
My favorite walking route is along Altamont Road, which sits atop the crest of Red Mountain and provides some of the best views in Birmingham. The majority of the road runs through Altamont Park, an undeveloped green space that, oddly, houses a WW1 cannon (topic for another time). Just past the cannon the sidewalk begins, passing by diverse, interesting houses - some hanging off the side of the mountain and others perched halfway down. Each one exhibits a different style, vibe and era, and I’ve included some of my favorites in this illustration. Throughout the mile-long walk, I enjoy gazing at the beautiful cityscape vistas of downtown Birmingham.
This is Croxteth Hall and Country Park. Once the country estate of The Molyneux family the Earls of Sefton. An Edwardian mansion with a Victorian walled garden, horses, highland cows, a farm, a cafe and lots of fresh air! I’ve walked there in every season but a brisk early morning winter’s walk is a must to see the vast acres of grass coated in a frosty shimmer.
For this illustration theme, I chose one of my favorite walks in Griffith Park, Los Angeles. From the Greek Theater, at the base, this is a short and mellow walk to the Observatory’s deck, where beautiful panoramic views of the city await you. For a much longer jaunt, you can continue walking towards the famous Hollywood Sign or simply explore any of the countless trails that Griffith Park has to offer.
This gem settles in the city’s heart, with astounding nature and local fauna. If you go in the late afternoon, falcons, coyotes, deers, and even mountain lions might say hi!
Yep, this isn't meant to be taken too seriously! I mean i do leave my house....sometimes! This was originally drawn with gouache and acrylics, but didn't look all that neat once scanned - so step 3 of this illustration was repeated....alot.
During this stay-at-home era in California, my homestead has truly become my heaven on earth. Nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains amidst the “Three Magical Miles”, our beloved Blanch Ranch is always buzzing with activity and life. The trail of bees around my home represents my daily stroll - from the labyrinth to the apiary, the Ranch is ripe with sunflower patches, vegetable gardens, log hives, and wild peacocks. On any given day, you are sure to see bikers on Mulholland Highway zipping down to the beach, or a zipliner dashing to and fro from the Adventure Haus. The view from the hilltop art studio inspires much creative joy, and reminds me to take one step and one day at a time.
