We want to create a booklet of ice cream shops in Europe, spreading the simple joy to more people in the world！
Why is it worth contributing?
Ice cream, an icy snack that contains history and culture, has brightened up numerous classic moments since hundreds of years ago. Carrying people’s memories and stories, ice cream contains with feelings that move everyone.
Through The Ice Cream Map, we hope to connect these ice creams together, collecting 50 European ice cream shops that not only own a tasty ice cream but also have a touching story, culture, and a spirit. Recorded in the blog and video, The Ice Cream Map will be a guidebook for ice cream lovers to visit these shops. It is a great adventure not just for taste buds, but more importantly, for soul！
Why is The Ice Cream Map so Special?
The Ice Cream Map not only introduces the ice cream, but also collects all the stories, culture, and spirit related to it. Under the guidance of this map, you won’t miss any ice cream shop. Ice cream should not only be a dessert enjoying in summer, but a blending of culture, spirit, story and feeling!
