India In Pictures: Part 1

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.

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 […]
