I am honored and oh, so proud to have been featured on none other than the BBC Travel blog The Passport. Yes baby, the BBC!
The lovely people at BBC are running a special feature on the illustrated maps produced for They Draw and Travel. My very pink and very girlie “Les Cafés de Paris” was one of the chosen ones. Check it out:
I’m so very proud!
Lots of love from Switzerland.

This is my new favorite film.
I have been a fan of Woody Allen’s for many years. I think I’ve pretty much watched everything he’s ever done. He can do no wrong in my eyes (please note that I’m talking about his work here, not his personal life).
Anyway, Midnight in Paris is so delightful I can’t recommend it enough! The storyline is great and the cast is impeccable. Without giving too much away, I particularly loved Corey Stoll (from Law and Order) as Hemingway. I don’t watch much TV so I didn’t even know who he was. Great performance though, just the right mixture of ego, suffering and comedy. Typical Woody Allen material, really. – If you haven’t seen it, go watch it now!

♥ Paris is the most feminine city in the world.
It’s true, think about it:
Every corner has a pastry shop;
Or a flower shop;
Or a chocolaterie;
Or a perfumarie.
Women are everywhere. The take over every sidewalk, every garden, every museum wall:
♥ There are flowers everywhere:
♥ And everywhere, there is pink:
Paris is a constant monument in honor of women and all things female.
I love being a girl. But being a girl in Paris is even more lovely than usual. :)
Wishing you a beautiful and inspiring weekend.
I am so excited about my latest drawing! I couldn’t wait to share it here.
Over the weekend, I illustrated a map of my favorite cafes in Paris for They Draw and Travel.
Here is the final piece:
Here are a few close-ups:
It’s not your usual map, I know, but if you look closely, all the vital information is there: the street name, the metro station, the river Seine and finally, the cafes: Les deux Magots, Leon, Café de Flore and Brasserie Lipp. I recommend each one of them. They are lovely.
This was such a joy to draw. It made me miss Paris like crazy.
Don’t forget to check out the other maps on They Draw and Travel. There are some really stunning illustrations there!
