I was born in HanKou, Wuhan. HanKou is economic district in Wuhan. The historical buildings in HanKou is almost on every street and blocks. There are really exotic and beautiful, you can breathe the old history in them.
Chatsworth House and Gardens has many visitors from all over the country, but it also has a beautiful estate where there are many areas to walk. One of my favourite walks is along the river to Beeley village, you walk across two beautiful old bridges and then a climb up to the hilltop. From the Emperor Waterfall and the Hunting Tower you can enjoy fantastic views right across the Estate.
Right now all museums are closed due to national lockdown, but you can still admire their architecture from the outside and all the museums included in the map offer a virtual tour online!
If you want to experience a day of ASP student, here is a map to follow through. This a typical daily walk from back in my days Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk. In the cold winter days, it was really hard to leave the house for the itchy cold. My day starts with a run to the classes, and of course deadlines. After the classes I used to go to get coffee and work in one of my favourite cafes in old town, Drukarnia. I was walking through the Basilica, where it is always windy in front. Always. Somedays, my road was changing to stop by some friends' houses, but usually ends up with a cup of coffee. And of course, if you do not share a drink with friends in a Scottish Pub, the day does not count and you need to start all over again...
One of my favorite walks in any season is through the historic village of Kinderhook in upstate New York. The village was home to the 8th president of the US, Martin Van Buren, and today has a great mixture of history, agriculture and art. The center of the village is very pedestrian friendly with sidewalks and a bike/walk trail that takes you on a quiet stroll past orchards & farms.
This walk in another bit from the Green Chain in London. I used to do this walk to go to Eltham’s swimming pool but didn’t discover Vista field until I did that part of the Green Chain and I loved it. One of the things I like about London is that you can find hidden places where you don’t even feel that you are in the crowded London. You can visit Vista field and The Tarn and be alone. In Vista field you can see the famous London skyline and in The tarn you’ll be surrounded but the beautiful lake and a great variety of birds and plants. Eltham palace is very special as well, it looks like a place from a fairy tale with a bridge and beautiful trees.
This is the best way to walk and visit the city, his islands, beautiful buildings and bridges of the old town in Wroclaw. There is everywhere something to do, either visit the Panorama Museum, or buying some local food at the market. The cathedral has a fantastic view point to see the city and great stained glasses inside! Make sure you take a boat to discover the Odra river, and don’t forget to see the typical for Wroclaw culture dwarfs!
Who knew Tulsa has the third highest concentration of Art Deco architecture in the U.S. behind NYC and Miami? I didn't until I asked a friend to tell me about Tulsa. She moved there to attend college and stayed. The 3-mile walk from the Center Of The Universe passed the "Artificial Cloud" sculpture to Boston Ave United Methodist Church will take about an hour to complete. South of the city center you'll find "God Mod" architecture on Oral Roberts University campus, an architectural style unique Tulsa. Seriously, Tulsa is an unsung architectural mecca. Road trip!
The second lockdown hit Georgia in November. By that time, I had come to Tbilisi, the Georgian capital. The city, which dates back to about the 5th century, is full of interesting and beautiful places--Persian-influenced architecture, lopsided "Italian" courtyards, picturesque hills, and quiet, sleepy neighborhoods. With the great weather and decent coffee to go, we discovered new little routes every day. However, the walk down Rustaveli Avenue to the Old Town and back to Vake Park is my favorite.
The first lockdown caught me far from home, in the small town of Batumi, Georgia, on the Black sea coast. My boyfriend and I spent hundreds of hours walking the city. Those walks filled us with peace and gave us a sense of tranquility in front of an uncertain future during the beginning of the global pandemic. This map shows a few of the most iconic places in Batumi such as Batumi Boulevard, the Ali and Nino statue, and the original railway station.
