More than a decade ago, I studied half a year in León, Nicaragua. For sure, this was one of the happiest times of my life! I totally fell in love with the people, who where so kind, passionate and joyful. I learned not only to get a deeper sense of their culture and language but to live a life far from wastefulness, complaining, jelousy and indifference to others. It was a way of life that shaped me, a way of life I'll never forget. Gracias Nicaragua, mi amor!
When people think of Germany, they always think of beer, but I live in wine country. The Oppenheimer Schlemmerwanderung is the first major wine event of the season, and really kicks off the nice weather and best time of year to live here. This is the first event my friends and I tend to meet for after a long cold winter, and somehow, this event ALWAYS has perfect weather. I'm convinced witches organize it. Sadly, it's been cancelled two years in a row due to the pandemic, so we could only attend in our memories, which inspired this map as my happy place.
One of my absolute favourite places to escape to is Cubbon Park, also known as the lungs of Bangalore. This green haven was originally created in 1870 and called Meade Park. It was renamed after Major General Sir Mark Cubbon, the longest-serving commissioner of the city. The park is spread over almost 250 acres and is a treasure house of beautiful and exotic plants, including gorgeous bamboo groves. It is a hot spot for nature lovers, joggers, bird-watchers and cyclists. The park is a major reason why pollution levels remain low in the city centre. A trip to Bangalore is incomplete without visiting this little piece of heaven!
My Happy Place is the Rhein Riviera in Basel. Here at the river banks is the place where the life happens and everybody gathers. I enjoy the Riviera all year long - to walk when it is cold or to sit there after a swim, grab a drink and some food, draw, play board games, listen to an improvised concert or just to look at the river and the hustle and bustle inside it.
This illustration depicts my love for live music. I’ve been missing it so much and can’t wait to be back there again! So many small venues around the country were at risk due to the pandemic. I was proud to rally with other concert-going fans to raise money to help save some venues from closure.
The first swim after a year of the pandemic was magical. I planted an herb garden, having discovered that deer don't like aromatic plants. Bring on the salads! Watching the first Hummingbirds arrive after their long migration is always a thrill.
Back in the day I had amazing opportunity to visit my dear friend in Dubai and see it from a very different point of view. Now, sitting second year in a global pandemic, I looked back on all the small bits and pieces from that trip and put it all into illustration.
Beautiful Indonesia Miniature Park which is located in Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia is a very pleasant location, you can go around Indonesia in just one day or even hours. There are many things that are typical of Indonesia that we can learn. Going out with family, friends, cycling or even walking is fun when you get there.
This map tells the story of my journey in Uppsala, my home away from home! I stayed in Uppsala for my studies last year - all these places are where I have always been and the route shows where I have always walked in Uppsala! Dedicating this map to all the amazing friends I have met in Uppsala (some of them are drawn in the map!) This map illustrates not only the walk but also my lovely memories. :) I have also included some elements that I love about the Swedish society and culture: the more equal parenthood and better gender equality, the LGBTQ-friendliness, the proximity with nature and animals - love it very much!
