With India As My Teacher…

India. The vibrant, rainbow jewel of the east. When the word India alights my tongue I can hear the language. I can see the sun. I can feel the adrenaline. Together, in my eyes, it is beauty. A thrill of exhilaration, eclipsed by a crescendo of flower petals, falling toRead More

DAY 30: Mirma and the Cathedrals of the Sea

The scarlet red weals on my brother’s feet that had manifested overnight from the ice bath his feet had taken, made our course of action clear enough. There was no way we would be able to continue on today, tackling a whole 30 kilometres (18 Miles). Our Camino de SantiagoRead More

DAY 29: Bridge to Ribadeo

The tangy scent of the sea coming from the stunning coastline rides the cool breeze of the morning and provides an invigorating refreshment to the senses. The lush green mountains that dot the hilly landscape tie the breathtaking painting together in a remarkable way. I am tingly with excitement atRead More

Day 24: A Walk to The Twilight Zone

“Bring Ring!”  The musical chime of bicycles made us all look up from the breakfast we were eating under the coveted shade of a regal oak tree and wave. In front of us, four figures waved enthusiastically back, and we called out goodbyes in our best Spanish and then watchedRead More

Symphony No.1 – OLD DELHI

The first timer visiting India and New Delhi in particular, might be tempted to mistake the cacophony of noise, bustle and frenetic movement as the epitome of chaos, and disorganisation, but, I would challenge them to look a little deeper, for if they do, they will see something way moreRead More

Moscow from a Teen’s Perspective

Today, everywhere we look, be it when surfing the internet, flicking through TV channels or watching a movie, we’re bound to come across that common image of the ‘average teen’. You know the one: The constantly annoyed expression, an oblivious nature to everything but the iPod, and earbuds, the passiveRead More
