Feeling Small in Wadi Rum

Feeling Small in Wadi Rum

‘In this big ball of people, I’m just one grain of sand on this beach.’ – Aurora. This vast land rolls away as far as I can see in every direction, barren and empty. Space is disceptive. Things seem closer than they actually are. My eyes trick me, making distance difficult to calculate. A rock formation appears to be close, but as we walk towards it, it grows further and further away until we have been walking for half an hour…

HTMW Recaps: December 2017

HTMW Recaps: December 2017

I normally add a quote to the beginning of each post that sums up or enhances my writing. However, I’m going to use my monthly recaps as an opportunity to sum up the month – be it the mood, the weather, my feelings… Anything really. December is all about Christmas, right? The food, the lights, the time spent with loved ones, the giving and receiving of presents, time at home, time to relax, all the alcohol… So it seems fitting…

Reflections on 2017

Reflections on 2017

‘We do not remember days, we remember moments.’ – Cesare Pavese. Every year, I write a reflection post on the past 365 days, looking back over everything I’ve done and remembering the highlights, the bad times and throwing up some of my favourite images taken. You can find my previous posts here, reflecting on 2015 and 2016 respectively. 2017 has been a busy year. And the time has flown. I can barely believe I am writing my annual reflection post…

HTMW Recaps: November 2017

I normally add a quote to the beginning of each post that sums up or enhances my writing. However, I’m going to use my monthly recaps as an opportunity to sum up the month – be it the mood, the weather, my feelings… Anything really. One of my highlights this month was attending the TEDx Women’s Conference. It was so inspiring! This month’s quote is therefore from one of my favourite speakers of the day. ‘Every time we find hope,…

HTMW Recaps: October 2017

I normally add a quote to the beginning of each post that sums up or enhances my writing. However, I’m going to use my monthly recaps as an opportunity to sum up the month – be it the mood, the weather, my feelings… Anything really. Despite a wonderful holiday and lots of fun with friends, October hasn’t been the easiest for me and I’ve had a few sleepless nights worrying about this and that. This quote just about sums up…

Postcards from Chefchaouen

Postcards from Chefchaouen

‘Blue thou art, intensely blue; Flower, whence came thy dazzling hue?’ – James Montgomery. I’ll admit it, hands up, guilty. Chefchaouen, or The Blue Pearl, is the first place that I’ve travelled to because Instagram inspired me. This stunning city in the heart of the Rif mountains is every single shade of blue that you can imagine, and I wanted a slice of the pie. So, when £50 return flights to Fes came up one random weekend in April, I…

HTMW Recaps: August 2017

I normally add a quote to the beginning of each post that sums up or enhances my writing. However, I’m going to use my monthly recaps as an opportunity to sum up the month – be it the mood, the weather, my feelings… Anything really. I’ve spent the entire month of August in London, trying to get out and explore old haunts and find some new ones! I’ve also had some great catch-ups with good friends, so here’s to the…

HTMW Recaps – July 2017

I normally add a quote to the beginning of each post that sums up or enhances my writing. However, I’m going to use my monthly recaps as an opportunity to sum up the month – be it the mood, the weather, my feelings… Anything really! This month I was prepared for a busy month but it turned out to be a bit quieter than I anticipated! One of the highlights of my month was seeing Green Day live, so this…

HTMW Recaps – June 2017

I normally add a quote to the beginning of each post that sums up or enhances my writing. However, I’m going to use my monthly recaps as an opportunity to sum up the month – be it the mood, the weather, my feelings… Anything really! This month it’s been a bit tough in the capital, with some really horrid stuff unfolding, so this quote reflects that and how communities always pull together in the face of extreme adversity. ‘To pull…

When I Miss New Zealand…

When I Miss New Zealand…

‘I feel that New Zealand is my second home.’ – Luke Evans. When I miss New Zealand, I like to look back over my favourite photos from the eighteen months I lived there and reminisce over the good times I had. I miss New Zealand less than I used to (i.e. not every single day anymore), but waves of ‘homesickness’ for the Land of the Long White Cloud do still hit me from time to time and I feel anxious…
