Illustrated Map of Lockdown Walks

Illustrated Map site They Draw and Travel held a call for illustrators to draw maps of their experiences during the recent quarantine/lockdown situations so I decided to make a piece based on the walks I took with my oldest child during the lockdown in Paphos. With most of the tourist areas and beaches closed and a restriction on travel, we were only able to exercise outside within a limited distance from our home. As a consequence, we discovered some beautiful areas close to our flat that we  previously had no idea existed.
