Blogs with a sense of place?

What I'm looking for are personal blogs that give a sense of the town the blogger is living in. Ideally, the focus should be mostly on the place but with details about the author as well.

I know that a lot of personal blogs give a little bit of attention to place but I'm looking for ones that put a lot of focus on the town--a sort of "personal guide to my town." I'd like to get a sense of different cities but I also like to hear personal stories.
For instance, Curbed LA
are good examples of blogs that give a a lot of good information about their respective cities, but there's no personal information. A blog like Garance Dore
gives a sense of New York as well as Garance herself, but the focus is mainly on fashion and photography.
I don't have a good example but I'm looking for a personal blog with a lot of details about the town itself--restaurants, culture, events, art, street fashion, shops, day in the life. The city/town is not important, so blogs from anywhere in the world would do. Any ideas?
