This place looks beautiful, from the looks of these photos, I should add it to my ever-increasing list of destinations to visit!

Kerala on the southwest coast of India is a unique place. This area is known for stunning, unusual scenery, backwaters, boat rides, lush foliage and Ayurvedic treatments. This place is lovely and romantic, you must see the fort kochi and surrounding areas to see the history of this place where jews, arabs, europeans all settled, this is one of the most beautiful places in India and one of the most beautiful 100 places in the world.
I know I’ve been pretty quiet on the Tumblr front lately. I’ve actually been off traveling in South East Asia; an experience I will never forget. I’ve particularly fallen in love with Laos as a country, it’s so laid back, you really have to get used to everything happening on “Laos time”. For me, someone whose mind never seems to stop fretting about one thing or another, it was the perfect place to discover how to just let things be and not try to control everything- a concept I really am trying, sometimes successfully, sometimes not so much, to apply to my life now I’m back at home. An added bonus for our trip to Laos was our being there during the new year celebrations, which included an awful lot of water being thrown over you fairly consistently. It didn’t matter who you were, monk, tourist, photographer holding expensive camera; at some point, you were going to get wet! This video (I’m sorry, I don’t know the creator but it is not mine) offers a small glimpse into those fantastic few days.
Heading off on more photography adventures this spring, this time in Laos and Cambodia. I’m so excited and can’t wait! Prepare for some gorgeous photos!
Returned home from Cairo today; looks like we made it back just in time. Having been right in the heart of the city, I can look back and say I was there for a moment in history. It was however a little scary, even before things escalated to the current situation and so I hope anyone there stays safe. More about my trip to Egypt to follow soon: it wasn’t all a state of riot and revolution and, from a personal perspective, I feel lucky to have seen the greater elements of the city before things erupted. Now sat glued to the news to see how things develop in what is clearly an important part of the country’s history and I’m amazed that a matter of days ago, I was calmly walking around the areas now pictured.
I’ll update more soon
