For most people, a trip to Kerala isn’t complete without a cruise along the backwaters of Allepey. An overnight stay on a traditional Alleppey houseboat is one of the biggest attractions for this region of India (and on any perfect India itinerary for that matter)… So of course, I wasn’t going to go all the […]
In 2015 I visited India for the first time and as I’m sure you already know, it totally changed my life. I explored cities in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh visiting Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Orchha and Varanasi. 3 years later in 2018, I re-visited this breathtaking country but in a totally different region… Kerala! […]
For me, ethical wildlife encounters are generally non-negotiable when it comes to travel (and life in general) and here in Negombo that was certainly no exception. Before I visit any destination – no matter where I am in the world – I always research the web (like these amazing Sri Lanka travel guides) to ensure […]
Nestled in the depths of Kerala, lies a magical national park where wildlife is most abundant. Also known as Periyar Tiger Reserve in Thekkady, this protected land is around 925 km² in size and the backbone of ethical wildlife tourism in Kerala. This beautiful location, along with its luscious untouched scenery, is the place where […]
Although very contradictory to one another, privilege and poverty are two very important topics that frequently cross my mind – and I’m sure the minds of many others. For those that are privileged, coming to terms with your luck can be confronting – but so important. Today, I’m here with Madhurima – A beautiful woman […]
As I’ve done with most of the destinations I’ve travelled to in recent years, I like to compile all of my favourite images from my trip into one huge photo diary! My trip in China was for a total of 10 days, travelling through Beijing, Hangzhou, Suzhou and Shanghai – It was a super fascinating […]
Being a foreigner in China was one of the most difficult to manoeuvre in my travels thus far. The Chinese communication barrier is by far one of the most daunting to overcome, as a lot of people in this country fail to speak English. “Fail” is definitely the wrong term to use though, as no […]
China is one of those places that I found incredibly fascinating; the people, the culture, the surroundings and the outstanding history. Every part of this place had an incredible story to tell – I learnt some interesting facts about almost every aspect of the country, so why not now share them with you? Here are […]
During my journey through China, I found myself taking photos of Chinese locals more than anything else in the country. There was something about their behaviour that I had never experienced anywhere else in the world. They were taking selfies with objects I wouldn’t even question to photograph, they would extravagantly pose for countless images, […]
Although many people know China for its overly polluted atmosphere and greasy foods, the Chinese people are actually healthier than what is often assumed. People in the world’s most populated country believe that a few basic techniques and life adjustments allow them to live a long and healthy life. And since I just came back […]
