For my family's "staycation" convenience I've mapped where 15 independently owned bookstores are located along the Oregon Coast (USA). One of my family's favorite things to do is walk a long distance beside the Pacific Ocean then have a picnic and a "sit and read by the sea" session. A great way to un-plug!
If you visit Tokyo and get a chance to come around Shinjuku area, I’d like to introduce you to this amazing art supply store called SEKAIDO. In this 6 story building, you’ll find absolutely everything to make arts and craft. Stationery, papers, paintings, paintbrushes, sculpturing, clay, frames, office supplies, I can go on forever! SEKAIDO truly is an artist’s heaven and it’s the cheapest in the town! I usually meander around on the 1st floor checking on new items and always buy MONO erasers and different sizes of double-sided tapes. Then I go to the 2nd floor to savor beautiful papers, and the 3rd floor to indulge myself into the sea of colorful paintings and pastels! To finish off, I have yummy ice cream sundaes at a lovely tea lounge on the 5th floor. This place is a paradise. I wish I could live on its rooftop and be surrounded by the sea of art supplies everyday!
From May through October I love to buy local & seasonal foods at nearby farmers' markets. It's great to be able to walk or bike to a market any day of the week to pick up fresh and tasty ingredients for a meal. As a project for the Folio Focus group, I've mapped out my favourite westend markets for each day of the week as a reference guide.
