All Things Shiny. In Morocco

‘Ooh, Shiny!‘ my visceral excitement walking through the doors of very precious looking Moroccan handmade pieces. I stayed there for a few minutes all by myself in a complete silence absorbing finely crafted artisan work. If you have ever been to Morocco you are probably wondering by now where I was able to find a quiet spot…

Slowing Down and Inhaling the Blues. In Morocco

9 am. The driver is here. They gave me a seat at the front. I am the only one travelling without a friend. So happy. Will be able to take pictures through the window. It’s so hot. Why isn’t he putting an air conditioner on? I am sweating. The driver says another 3 hours to…

When You Always Want More

It is about 15 minutes walk. You will see it on your right. There is no way you can miss it, she said. I am doing as told. My feet is dusty and dirty and I am sweating even from my …. (You don’t need to know that). I keep going. There is nothing that looks…

Do Not Forget To Smile. Angkor Wat

Early morning. My tuk tuk driver picked me up before the sunrise. Big day. A day I was a guest at the very special Angkor Wat, Cambodia. It is easy to get overwhelmed in such surreal places. I like to wander. Not one of those bullet point visitors. I enjoy being in places and not ‘doing’…

If You Could Do Anything What Would You Do?

My Google photos ‘Rediscover this day’ notifications is the biggest joy and pain in the a**. Nothing like being stuck at a freezing train station after a long day at work and getting an update on where you were this time last year. I went to Sapa, Vietnam. Nostalgia for my wanderlust. I am torn every single day…

They were kind and let us cruise through Inle Lake when our cry for help hugging toilets stopped. We started out trip just before the…

For the Lovers of Extraordinary. Greek Wander

Do you get stuck? I do. Trapped in an imaginary world of problems. Making failure plans and having nothing to look forward to. Misery can be so tiring. Why would anyone choose to feel that way? Then the imaginary happens and you snap out of it. I hope you do. Travel pictures always bring light…

My Big Fat Greek Holiday

10AM. We have already had breakfast and walked a few miles. We are eating ice cream. A lovely ice cream lady pointed out to her favourite mix of praline and cinnamon. Interesting. Sold! I am also licking some Ferrero flavoured goodness. We have a dilemma. There is not enough time in the day to try all…
