madrid - nice places around Puerta del Sol

My name is Karlijn and I live in Utrecht, a small historic city in the heart of the Netherlands. I'm married to Michael and have a dog called Biscuit.

My daytime job is (internet) brand manager but after work I'm busy with paper, paint, buttons and getting creative. With my husband and our friend Marjolein I organise Creative Mornings Utrecht ( and live inviting speakers and meeting nice, creative people.

I want to create a map of Madrid. The second week of november I'm enjoying a noce long weekend with my family there. The map needs to have some cafe's, restaurants and nice shops. We are going with my mother (65 years old), her kids and their partners (all in our 30's) and my 2 lovely nieces of 4 years and 1 year old.


This is the first version of my map. I worked directly in photoshop and ik took me a few hours. I chose clean lines because I'm nog very good at illustrator so I used photoshop. Ans also because I wanted to get a feel of map making so chose a simple version of a map.

I've traced google maps and added content from different websites. I wanted to make a map that is a good way to start our holiday in Madrid and is also a fall back around the hotel. For my brother and husband I've added starbucks near the hotel. The yellow dots are shops or shopping area's. The apotheek (pharmacy) is in case we need something for the little ones.

Next staps is adding the streetnames and making the map a little neater.
