Take a crafty tour of the cities and hometowns of our members to discover their favorite shops, restaurants and inspiring hang-outs
Despite being the second largest city in Denmark, Aarhus is a rather small, cosy city vibrant with students and student life and with a lot of focus on culture; 2017 saw Aarhus as the European Capital of Culture which shows that the small city can really hold its own on this front. Creativity is also a big part of everyday life here, and there are a lot of different craft-shops scattered around the city. Another great thing about Aarhus is its modest size, meaning that nature is just outside one's doorstep!
One of the best things about living in Denver, the Mile High City, is the spectacular views of the mountains. Denver serves as a gateway to the Rocky Mountains, which attracts people from all over the world. If you are an outdoorsy type of person, Denver will fulfill all your needs for hiking, dog parks, dirt biking, outdoor yoga, gardening, etc. You are just a short drive away from the mountains where you can enjoy skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and the hot springs in the winter and hiking, rock climbing, white water rafting, and geocaching in the summer. Denver, Colorado is filled with endless adventures and 300 days of sunshine. If you come to visit, you will not be disappointed.
The best thing about Chester besides the history and the shops is that there is always something to do.
Chicago is a fantastic Midwestern city, so it has all the advantages of the big city, but still friendly and welcoming to all. In Chicago you get to experience all 4 seasons, so bundle up and dig your car out of the snow in Winter, then grab your bathing suit and head to the beach at Lake Michigan in the Summer. There are loads of Museums to visit, restaurants to try, parks to play in Sports or Theater to watch. There is a great local art and music scene too, it pretty much has everything you could want
The best things about living in Franklin are the beauty and the history. On November 30, 1864, the Battle of Franklin was fought here. It was one of the bloodiest battles of the American Civil War, and saw some of most severe hand to hand fighting of the war. There are several historic cites within the city to visit and learn about the war including Carnton Plantation, Lotz House, & the Carter House. Now Franklin is once again a jewel of the South, featuring beautiful rolling green hills, a mix of old and new homes, and a thriving downtown full of independent businesses and boutiques.
The best thing about living in my city is the weather! It's warm and sunny all year round.
The beautiful Garden City, and largest city in the South Island, ?tautahi (in Te Reo M?ori), also known as Christchurch, is a vibrant and thriving place, with old English charm. Though the City was affected by earthquakes from 2010, until more recently, there are M?ori and Kiwi culture, art, and inspirations everywhere, from Pegasus Bay, to the Avon River, the vastness of the Pacific Ocean is only a short drive away.
The best thing about living in Swindon is the wide range of shops, entertainment venues and outdoor spaces.
Toulouse, also known as the pink city for its brick walls is a very endearing city. When I arrived, I immediately fall in love with the meanders of its streets, the banks of the Garonne river where the students come to enjoy the first days of spring, or the bicycle path along the Canal du Midi connecting the town to the Mediterranean Sea since the seventeenth century.
Plymouth is known as the Ocean City. The best thing about living here are the stunning views. The open sea on one side and the rugged moorland the other. Plymouth caters for most people, with the Barbican and cobbled streets, restaurants, antiques and variety of shops. The city centre and the new Drakes Circus shopping mall for the hardened shoppers. The Royal William Yard, the place to be for for food and meeting people.
