it is starling season and the fields surrounding the farm are full of them. murmurations of them swoop around just before sunset and you can hear an almighty whooshing noise as they all leave the trees in perfect synchronicity. it reminds me of watching them at the end of the pier in brighton and it feels like home.


using it

these maps have turned my life around. they are the best city maps ever and when using it it is possible to feel a bit less like a tourist and a bit more at home. we have used them in vienna and prague and every suggestion on them has been wonderful. they are non-profit and run by locals and if you want one for your city you can apply to start one which is great (there are none in england yet…). you can see what cities they have on their website and i am going to plan future city breaks on whether they have these maps or not!
