Elephants have been my favourite animal since I first clapped eyes on one roaming the streets of Mumbai, when I moved over to India with my family aged 8. I didn’t know at the time the suffering the poor elephant had probably been through to find itself walking the chaotic streets of such a busy … Continue reading #SavetheElephant: Responsible Elephant Encounters
My tales of an exciting trip around northern Thailand, including jungle treks, elephant sanctuaries, floating bungalows and more!
As the nights began to draw in and the weather was becoming increasingly drab, I couldn't help but give in to the desire to escape on another adventure. My latest trip and the final break of 2017 was to the Czech capital, Prague. It may not offer the sunshine I've been longing for since the summer … Continue reading Prague: The City of a Hundred Spires
When your best friend owns a vineyard in Bordeaux it would be rude not to pay her a visit, right? Well, last weekend I was lucky enough to be invited out to France with a group of friends to check out their stunning new abode!

Stay-cations are definitely underestimated and I'm just … Continue reading Summer Staycation: A Weekend in Bath
I've always had a desire to see the world, I think this was probably inspired by a stint living in India as a child, however it wasn't really until recently that I realised quite how much I want to explore.
Vibrant, colourful, chaotic, energetic, fragrant (not always pleasant...in fact more often unpleasant), crowded, dirty, beautiful, bustling, historic...Just a handful of words I could use to describe the vast, diverse and truly unique nation that is India. Having lived in India as a child, I wasn't entering the country blind, however upon arrival I realised … Continue reading Eternal India
Ever since I left uni nearly 3 years ago I've had it in mind that I would love to revisit India, but for one reason or another each time I went to organise it, the timing wasn't quite right (that and I kept chickening out). I lived in Mumbai for 3 1/2 years when I … Continue reading India I’m Coming for Ya!
