India In Pictures: Part 1

India In Pictures: Part 1

One of my favourite things about travelling, is reminiscing once I get back home. Rummaging through slips and pamphlets collected along the way. Looking through photos. Remembering.  It’s been four months since I got back from the three week trip to India and I’ve been looking through my pictures and aching, just aching to go […]

Incredible India: The Video

It’s taken me four months to edit this video. Partly because I am a complete novice at the video editing game and partly because it was so incredibly difficult to cut down three weeks of unforgettable experiences, caught on video between my iPhone, Olympus PEN and Fuji X20, into just two or three minutes. I […]

I have secured some work until the end of June and I’ve had the opportunity to do what I love most, travel (and plan more travel). I know this immediate success can’t last forever, but […]

10 Things To Do In Cape Town

An Australian friend I met while I was in India last year recently contacted me, asking if June/July was a good time to visit Cape Town and what kind of things she and her husband could do while they were here. Well, I got very excited and I could hardly type fast enough to get […]

10 Things About India

10 Things About India

In November 2013 I spent 3 weeks in India, exploring Mumbai and Kerala. I have long been obsessed with this beautiful country and her people, food and culture. If I had had more time, I would have loved to travel from North to South and back, but as it was, I made the most of […]

Places To See In Cape Town: Smitswinkel Bay

Places To See In Cape Town: Smitswinkel Bay

As you make your way from Cape Town to Cape Point, you pass through the quaint harbor village of Kalk Bay, winding along through the naval-themed Simon’s Town and around the bend past Smitswinkel Bay. To your left, a jewel-coloured bay overlooked by a slope dotted with ramshackle houses takes your breath away. Just past […]

What India Taught Me

What India Taught Me

As the last day of any holiday draws nearer, that familiar anxious feeling inevitably seeps slowly back into my body. My tummy is a knot of ice and butterflies.
