Food maps – The new world atlas

There are a lot of different ways to represent our world in a piece of paper. But what if comes about a food map? Never heart about it? Well, think about a country and what is the most representative food/product that make it world wide known and unique…
France – Cheese & bread
Two photographers tried to figure out how some country maps may look like and the result is outstanding. The next food maps are created by Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves originally were inspired by a passion for travel.  
China – Noodles

 Exploring new places through the food you eat is often a portal to the cultural complexities of that place.

In this series they have taken many of the iconic foods of countries and continents and turned them into physical maps. While we know that tomatoes originally came from the Andes in South America,  Italy has become the tomato king. 

Africa – Bananas

These maps show how food has travelled the globe – transforming and becoming a part of the cultural identity of that place. Who doesn’t know the saying “throw some shrimp on the barbie” and not think of Australia? Who goes to France without eating bread and cheese?  And who makes a Brazilian caipirinha without a fistful of limes?

India – Herbs

These maps are a playful representation of our interpretation of food from around the world, painstakingly created with real unadulterated food.  This project speaks to the universality of how food unites people, brings us together and starts conversation –  just as they hope these beautiful maps will do too.

Italy – Tomatoes

 

USA – Corn

 

UK & Ireland – Biscuits

 

Japan – Seaweed

 

New Zealand – Kiwis

Australia – Shrimps

Capturing your memories in a creative video…

You are coming home after an incredible trip and lot of memories and material on your camera/mobile/pad.

Everyday life is on again and consuming all the energy and positive thoughts you gained, of course once jet-lack is away -:), but you have to tell your friends, family, pet what you liked the most but also to keep the trip in your heart.

Evgeniy Kaurov (http://kaurov.net/) created an inspiring video regarding a trip to Tokyo, Japan. It is not only the creativity of the creator and his talented graphic additions but the simplicity of the out come as well.

Watch the video clip and I am sure you will start thinking of creating your own video clip from your last unforgettable trip.

Travelling is happiness, don’t you thing?

It is been a while since my last post. In the meantime several things occurred and time was limited to share my thoughts and experiences with you but I am back.

What is actually the happiness of a trip or travelling in generally? The destination, the free days, the company we are travelling with (mates, family, kids), the exploration of the world? To be honest I do not really know but I neither wish to know. Every trip is different, same each day of our life.

I know only one thing: I love travelling, exploring unknown places and meeting interesting people. And I know that many people love that too. Most of major travelling websites and companies are focusing to profits and forwarding well known destinations and specific attractions.

But almost everything is remarkable in this world. Every place, even the little corners hide memories and experiences that needed to be share and be known. Hope one day to give a chance to all the travellers and locals to enjoy our truly remarkable world.

Travelling is happiness, don’t you thing?

PS: More confessions to come, stay tuned!
