Let’s begin with a quote from the Paddington Bear himself: And honestly, I couldn’t agree more. My trip to London was inspired by many things. Harry Potter was definitely at the top of the list followed by my mum’s stories after staying there for some years. Before visiting, I had a very fantastical picture of the city in mind and honestly, I wasn’t disappointed. It … Continue reading The London Postcard
For a long while as a preteen, I’ve had a history of referring to the colour ‘Green’ as ‘Hulk-coloured’. Hehe. True story. For two years in middle school, my whole aesthetic was ‘Hulk-coloured’. Starting from the school bag to t-shirts and nail polish, literally everything had the touch of green. While I did get over my obsession of having everything green, it’s interesting to note … Continue reading Green Trees Inc.
When I was a wee lamb, I used to think that skylines referred to some sort of cosmic line in the sky and that it had something to do with aliens. Imagine the disappointment when I found out that they are so called because of the ‘line’ formed by the continuous heads of skyscrapers. Hehe. Fun fact though, it didn’t disappoint me. True, I didn’t … Continue reading Skyline Story
The best kinds of travel recommendations are obtained from works of fiction. The Loch Ness monster has always fascinated me, ever since I was a wee baby. My mum used to tell me (imaginary?) stories of encountering the monster on her trip to Scotland before I was born and her claims were backed by a rather realistic souvenir of Nessie that came back with her. … Continue reading With Love from Nessie….

We come across so many forms of light apart from the sun, be it street lamps or candles or fairy lights or even chandeliers. In this post, Imma take you through some of my favourite photos incorporating the above … Continue reading The Lit Blog
Fun Fact: Da Nang was a city we decided to visit based solely off of an ad on TV. So the only thing that came to mind en route the city was that some bridge here got hands. While that is true, Da Nang was a city like nothing I’ve ever seen. Often when we travel to foreign places, there are elements which strike us … Continue reading Postcards ft. Da Nang
Travelling to Cambodia was literally a decision that was made after looking at an assortment of Google images. We combined the trip with our whole summer tour to South East Asia, including Vietnam, Singapore and Malaysia for a grand period of two weeks. Now, with the said number of countries on the itinerary, the whole tour was what I like to call a ‘flash tour’. … Continue reading Flash tour ft. Siem Reap
Travelling to Greece was an idea borne out of watching Disney’s Hercules and reading Rick Riordan’s fiction entwined with Greek mythology. In fact before visiting Greece, the only thing I pictured when I thought of the country was alabaster statues with empty eyes, philosophers and broken columns of stone. While the country has a lion’s share of the above elements, walking through its streets gives … Continue reading Postcards from Zeus
