LOVE My City Project

Union Square, San Francisco

Every city in the world is different. It has its own story, points of interest, characteristics, beauty and colors. Also, for every person each city is different. Just one word can bring out in us a colorful mosaic kaleidoscope of images, memories, stories, people, souvenirs, emotions and feelings.

So what is a city? What do you think of when you hear the name of the city? Famous sights? Beauty? Or people?

If you have mixed feelings towards reviews and opinions (you can read more about it in Beauty of Choice post), this project is a great opportunity to tell a story of your City, get to know a local version of other places through the stories and experiences of the people that live there. This is an opportunity to see the real version of it, faults, beauty and all.

Participate in LOVE My City Project:

Tell a story of your city (or your state, or even a town), what you love about it, your favorite sights and places, and why you are proud of it. Most importantly, convince other people to visit it. (Great opportunity for traveler/tourist-overlooked places!)

No special format required (as long as it fits the subject matter!). Be creative!

Read, travel and get inspired by these stories:

My Jacksonville

Connecticut, my beloved Constitution State

Send a story of your city or contact me for more information: nadia.globetrottinggirl@gmail.com.

Let’s unite LOVE for our cities, see and experience them through the stories of the people that live there. Let’s create a new way of traveling through LOVE My City Project!

Would you like to share a story of your city? Do you know anyone who would like to write about his/her city?

 

Peace. LOVE. Joy.
