Taking a stroll around the block after dinner to pick fallen and overhanging fruits over public footpath.
My dog Bonzo LIVES for walks and runs. She loves sniffing, watching for squirrels, and meeting new people! And being part Husky, she's always on the go go go. This walk is our favorite together in any weather.
This is a map of my favorite restaurants, bakeries, bars and coffee shops in Logan Square. I recently moved away from this neighborhood and this is my way of reminiscing not only the place itself but a seemingly so distant time of wonderfully packed gatherings, edible explorations and convivial conversations. In this time of masked smiles and gloved gestures, I wanted to focus on their always friendly, familiar faces and that made any cup of coffee, glass of wine or bowl of soup so enjoyable not only for the body but for the soul. These small businesses are strongly surviving such time, carefully, graciously and more than ever passionately giving us flavors and feelings of hope and happiness to come.
I live in Kamogawa City, Chiba Prefecture in Japan. Chiba is next to Tokyo, but if you go south for about two hours, you will arrive in the idyllic countryside.
Facing the sea where surfers gather, it is a great location surrounded by mountains, rice terraces and fields.All of the pictures I have drawn here are my favorite places. A delicious vegan cafe, a farm-to-table cafe where you can eat wild herbs, a natural yeast bakery, a botanical dyeing clothes shop, a library with exciting books, and a beautiful rape field.
Take a walk and discover these secret courtyards called "hofjes" in Amsterdam's Jordaan neighborhood. Originally built as housing for retired nuns, widows and older single women, these charming houses surrounding courtyard gardens are wonderful places to sneak a peak. Some of them are now home to music students and artists and you may even catch a concert or open atelier on your stroll. A few of my favorite hofjes are pictured! :)
This is my usual stomping ground during lockdown, I must have done this walk over 100 times! There's not usually much to see, just the usual dog walkers, squirrels, joggers, and occasionally the odd helicopter carrying a vehicle!
The evening is the best time for a little walk, just around the corner. The streets are calm, the people are at home and (… that’s the best, I admit it …) they turn their lights on! So you can see all that little stories of live behind the windows. And our cat? Feely is always very enthusiastic at the at the start, but she remembers her personal limits quite quickly. So only some big Meows follow me and a reproachful but relieved cat waits for me at the end. So we draw together a map about our walk in honour to that all-day-pleasures. And – as in every good map – there’s an unknown territory: the reign of the Grey Cat! (One day we’ve been there … but that is a story for another map!)
I took a long walk on saturday to explore my neighborhood but was massively disappointed. If you’ve ever visited Vienna in winter you know that we have barely snow here and it’s dizzy and foggy most of the time. While I walked down my favourite path I thought about summer and autumn where the weather is nice, the grass green and the area covered with grapevines. So I thought about: why not showing the path in my mind instead of the grey environment?
This map shows me and my dog's two favourite routes in my neighbourhood. We like to go up to the park on the hill where we can enjoy the whole city view. Our second favourite route is to a little creek where we can meet a lot of other dogs.
This map shows a typical urban hike I might take from my apartment on the island of Södermalm in Stockholm, Sweden. I start with the overlook at Monteliusvägen, continue through Mariatorget, the square in my neighborhood, then I continue over to the lookout from Skinnarviks park, where you can see Stadshuset (city hall) and the apartments along Norr Mälarstrand. From there, I head to the allotment gardens located in Tanto park, then a stop by Fabrique bakery where I might pick up a tasty cinnamon bun or fresh loaf of levain bread for an afternoon fika (coffee break). On my way back to my apartment, if it is the weekend, a stop by Röde Orm to pick up a pizza dough for homemade pizza is a must!
Discovery Gardens is a sprawling residential community inspired by garden living. Though it's located at one end of Dubai, I love living in this community as it is surrounded by lush green landscapes and it is great for long walks. There are so many birds and flora that it does not feel like a part of Dubai. During the Lockdown, I walked a lot in the mornings around this community.
I live in charming little town call Aylmer in the province of Québec next to Ottawa (Ontario province) the national capital of Canada. The fun with this town is the fact that we live right next to the National Gatineau Parc. Outdoor sport is part of our daily life. The French Quebec province also offer plenty of lovely restaurant, coffee shop (crêpe et croissant) and a cute market during weekend.
This map shows a small circular route round a beautiful part of North Bristol. I live locally so it's wonderful to celebrate its beautiful history and architecture as well as its niche independent shops, bakeries and restaurants.
