Adventures in Kenya : Part III - Mombasa & Lamu

Adventures in Kenya : Part III - Mombasa & Lamu

After our safari adventures we headed down to the coast, to my home town, Mombasa. Here K and I had access to a car and fill our days with friends and mini roadtrips along the coast. I would drive down streets familiar to me and along the way share stories of my childhood...

Chefchaouen's Blue Hues - Morocco Part V

One of the places I was particularly looking forward to visit was a beautiful town known as Chefchaouen. I came across it through Instagram earlier in the year and since we were already talking about visiting Morocco I knew that somehow we would find a way to visit it!

Now this is where the real highlight of my year happened! Out in the desert, warm fine sand sinking softly under my bare feet and nothing but blue skies and bright sun above, suffice to say, life felt pretty perfect. Walking high on softly rolling dunes was a dream (one I didn't even know I had) come true! 

a new year, a new journal & new resolutions!

After deliberating and talking about a new space for my blog for over a year, with the start of a new year comes new life resolutions and one of mine is to finally start doing everything I've been putting off and to give Passion a go.

At the end of last year I made the decision to leave architecture and commit full time to photography and all the things that I've wanted to do (but never found the time to).  It's a scary decision but I'm hoping that with a positive attitude, hard work and lots of self motivation anything is possible. We're only here temporarily and I couldn't waste another minute feeling as though I wasn't doing what my heart drives me to do.

This year is going to be exciting. It's the year that I'm going to give everything I've ever wanted to do a go! I'm not going to let my nerves or self consciousness hold me back nor think or worry about failure. I will battle negative thoughts with bright positive light! No one can make our dreams come true but us right? ;)
