I love markets, I love to walk though the stalls, to look for fun things or things I need. I can spend hours walking around big markets everywhere in the world. This year this has been a recurrent and nice walk, the one we are allowed to do to and through the neighbourhood market.
Frankfurt has a long tradition of selling fresh products on the streets. There have been farmers' markets in Frankfurt since the 12th century. The map shows six of the overall 20 farmers' markets, which exist in the city of Frankfurt nowadays. Each district has its own one an a particular day of the week from Tuesday to Saturday.
As a broke of college art-school student, here is my guide to save most of your money in Silver Spring, MD! You start off with your classes at the Cafritz center! After a long day of classes and drawing, you get a little hungry right? Here are your options - 711: Instant ramen, mini beef tacos, some chips and water; fine dining wouldn't you say? The Big Greek Cafe: They sell fresh Gyro's for only 5$ on Wednesdays! Kaldi's Cafe: Your main caffeine supply, if you get to know the baristas you might get lucky and get an extra espresso shot in your cappuccino. (shoutout Casen and Kathy) Fortunately for me I use to work at the Starbucks in the corner, so I occasionally get free food. Usually don't go there cause it's kind of a walk from school. (shoutout ash and rein) Or maybe you're ready to purchase some overpriced art supplies? Head over the Plaza Art Store and preemptively apologize to your wallet. (The people at Plaza are actually great staff that do their best to give you the best discounts, shoutout to Theo) Library is a pretty nice place to study; lots of window. Planet fitness, cause fitness is great. and that's about it
I love grocery shopping, it's therapeutic. And heading to the neighbourhood supermarket is probably the most 'exciting' moment in my life these days. In Singapore, the new normal now is having to put on masks, have our IDs scanned and temperature checked before we're allowed into the supermarkets. It's also interesting to observe what everyone is buying these days to stock up at home. Stuff that people used to panic buy - eggs, hand sanitizer, toilet paper - are now fully stocked. Instead, kimchi, pasta and baking goods are flying off the shelves. It's also a bummer that everyone else loves sour cream and onion chips as much as I do. What are people stocking up on in your area, and what are your personal essential items to tide you through this stay home period? Keep a safe distance and stay healthy!
This map shows small cafés, restaurants and shops in my neighborhood which I love very much. They all are located along one street named Leipziger Strasse. During the Covid-19 crisis these small businesses are having a hard time. So I think is very important to support them through this difficult time.
I've visited Japan many times and I know I will keep going back! There's so much to see and every trip I feel I've discovered something new. One of my favorite places to go is Harajuku. It's so bright and colorful, and you can always find new trends in clothes, art and even food. Yet within the hustle and bustle of crowded streets, you will stumble upon pockets of peace.
This place is special to me because it makes me feel inspired. This map shows my favorite independent bookshops in London. Books are many people’s safe space. These really special bookshops made me feel home in a new city when I first arrived, and I’m sure they delight many others everyday!
Kapana is a small walkable district in the town of Plovdiv. Its history dates back to the 16th century, when it was the merchant and crafts center of Plovdiv. A few of its streets are actually named after the craftsmen that practiced there for centuries: Zhelezarska Str. (Blacksmith Str.), Zlatarska Str. (Goldsmith Str.), Abadjiyska Str. (Coat-Tailor Str.), Kozhuharska Str. (Fur-Tailor Str.). The name itself (Kapana) means “trap” or “labyrinth”. And it’s well-deserved too — one can easily get lost in its cobblestoned streets that always meet at peculiar angles. Having lost its liveliness since the mid-20th century (the streets being mostly packed with parked cars), in the past few years the neighborhood has been revived again, largely thanks to Plovdiv's nomination for the European Capital of Culture 2019. Today Kapana is the colorful heart of Plovdiv — a social place with an artistic spirit and unique atmosphere.
This place is special to me because I took the leap to move to Hanoi, Vietnam from the UK to have a (drastic!) change of scene and rediscover my creative voice. I am passionate about sustainable fashion and joined Fashion Revolution Vietnam to promote ways of enjoying fashion sustainably through exhibitions and events. I have discovered so many amazing ethical designers, second hand boutiques and winding markets which many people don't know about here, so I wanted to share them through this playful map to begin the adventure for someone else...
Kagurazaka is my absolute favorite place in Tokyo! They have a variety of restaurants, cafes and shops that sell authentic Japanese stuff, and plenty of traditional architecture, such as Akagi shrine and Zenkoku temple. It is the perfect place to hang out with your friends and enjoy the lively atmosphere!
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!
