Iran – Part 1

Sri Lanka in 100 photographs

It was during my third and final year at UCL that I decided to extend my half term break and book (relatively) cheap flight tickets to Sri Lanka. I had a pretty full plate with lab experiments for my dissertation, job applications and general London chaos, […]

India is an unbelievable country full of colour, contrasts, energy and spice! In 2008 my family travelled around Rajasthan in the Northern India for a couple of weeks. The trip will always remain one of the most magical and unforgettable experiences I have had in my […]

Cuba #8 – On The Road

Photos taken from the car, in the car, of the car, around the car. Photos of bizarre situations, crazy perspectives, beautiful landscapes, people passing by. All things Cuban, some things blurry. Endless roads disappearing over the horizon. We spent an insane amount of time in our […]

Cuba #7 – Magical Havana

Havana is a city like no other. The colonial architecture, the music, the busy street life, the colours, the cigar dealers, the cars – it is uniquely beautiful. We spent many days just wandering about the streets of Centro Habana, which I preferred 100% to the touristy […]

Cuba #2 – People

Cuban people either greet with you with the biggest smile or scare you away with a terrifying death stare. I love how life here takes place on the street. Half the population is chilling on their front door step. The other quarter of people carefully […]

Istanbul Day Two

Even though V. and me are very serious about our sightseeing, there’s always enough time to sleep in. After all we’re here for five days! A juicy fruit breakfast from the local shop followed by a quick espresso and we were good to go. First, a […]

Nice to meet you, Istanbul!

I don’t know why my sister and me have never travelled together before. Just the two of us. We’ve been raised to travel and visit foreign countries the same way. Not only have we learned to appreciate the same things but we also have the same idea […]

Driving along the Syrian border

I learned a lot during my ten days in Lebanon. In hardly any corner of the world it is more interesting to see how culture, politics, religion and language define a people. How a country unites as well as tears apart over these issues. The people are so proud […]
