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, […]

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 #5 – Amazing Light

Uni is killing me at the moment so I decided to give myself a little treat by looking through my Cuba photos again. For this little category there were hundreds of photos to choose from. Sunsets, thunderstorms, night skies, sunrise, sun rays in the jungle, pretty […]

Malaysian Memories

This trip happened a long long time ago. It was the summer that we graduated from school and I just can’t get my head around the fact that that’s almost three years ago. After lots of parties in London, hopping around European capitals, relaxing days in […]

Frequency Festival 2014

5 days in St. Pölten, Austria, with the best bunch of people I’ve known for over 10 years. Awful weather, muddy boots & muddy everything. Taking showers in the river. Mice in our tents, disgusting food, lots of booze and lots of selfies. If you’re looking […]

Yogyakarta and its madness

I experienced Yogya and Java in a really intense and impulsive way. I took a 23 hour night bus from Bali – a bus full of men who couldn’t speak English and one white girl travelling by herself, we battled our way through heavy rainstorms & flooded streets, […]

Lombok, Indonesia

Indonesia comprises more than 13,000 islands and Lombok is one of them. It is close to Bali and also similar in size, but it is nowhere near as touristy as Bali. Bali is crowded & busy, every single piece of free land is used for bars, […]

Ubud, Bali

Everyone knows Ubud. It’s where Julia Robert falls in love with Javier Bardem and dumps James Franco for him in Eat Pray Love. It’s about an hour away from the coast, so unlike anywhere else in Bali you don’t come here for surfing. I came to Ubud for the […]

Gili Islands, Indonesia

At some point I felt like I had seen all of Bali: Denpasar, Seminyak, Uluwatu, Canggu, Sanur, Nusa Lembongan, Ubud, Candidasa, Lovina and a couple more in-between. So I decided to catch a boat from Padangbai and to go the Gili Islands. I had heard […]

Backpacking through Bali

Backpacking through Bali

I wanted to learn how to surf, so I went to Bali. Blonde girl with a big backpack, 17 years old. I had the time of my life. I met the most wonderful people – locals as well as fellow travellers. (Not sure if “traveller” […]

Out and About in Hong Kong

Before heading to Bali, I stopped by Hong Kong for one night to drop off some luggage at my best friend’s house. After a crazy month of backpacking through Indonesia, I returned to HK – and this time I stayed. Traveling by myself was such an amazing […]

Little Trip to Longsheng, China

Early in the morning, we got on a bus in Guilin that took us to a bus… which took us to a bus… that took us to a bus… which finally took us up to the mountains to a place called Longsheng. It’s only 100 km away from Guilin, […]
