Deep in the Colca Canyon of Peru- named the sixth largest canyon in the world, surrounded by nothing but breath-taking, luscious nature, saturated with vibrant colours, and the sounds of flourishing ecosystems- I, ever dramatic, lay in agony certain I was dying. These intestinal pains had been going on for over a month now, so…

This morning I woke up on a deserted beach on the coast of Java. My friends and I traveled through the night to get here and it is just beautiful. As I sit out in the water waiting for a wave I realize that I am perfectly and completely happy in this moment. I could…

My 2017 sojourn spanning 49 days through the seven sister states of north-east India had whetted my appetite enough to make me want to return to the region – which I did in December 2018.
