What to expect in Jaipur: it’s loud, it’s crazy and it’s utterly beautiful

Letter 162 Jaipur for me was a whirlwind and had many ups, a few downs and moments of pure confusion. We spent 3 days wandering around The Pink City, visiting palaces and forts, and taking in as much of this insane city as possible. There is so much to do, both in and out of … Continue reading What to expect in Jaipur: it’s loud, it’s crazy and it’s utterly beautiful

The calm and chaos of India’s White City: Udaipur

Letter 159 Udaipur was everything I expected and more. It was grand, full of exquisite architecture and littered with colourful fabrics, food and flora. What I didn't expect was to find some of the kindest people I've ever met, to feel relaxed and at ease quite so quickly, or to see cows sit at the … Continue reading The calm and chaos of India’s White City: Udaipur

Beauty of Berlin

Letter 122 My 5 days in Berlin were filled with beautiful architecture, striking street art, salty pretzels and Christmas cheer. I fell in love with this quirky city and all its perfect imperfections.

Bad at blogging and missing Montenegro

Letter 111 I'm pretty certain I'm one of the worst bloggers out there. Honestly, I'm not even sure I can call myself a blogger. Maybe I can when I'm no longer suffocated by deadlines and restricted to spending most of my waking hours in the studio I'll get better. Or maybe I just need a … Continue reading Bad at blogging and missing Montenegro
