Getting up at 5 am to watch the sunrise is not something you do when you’re not traveling. When you are traveling however, it is so often worth it. Don’t get me wrong it still hurts but watching the world come to life had a certain magic to it, more than the sunrise will ever have.

Why You Should Do The Touristy Thing

Contrary to what the title of this article might suggest I’m the last one to encourage you to behave like a stereotypical tourist or backpacker but stay with me here. I actually like to see us more as visitors of a country, observers of a new culture or just passers-by. I believe in having respect for the culture that you are visiting and for nature in which the country resides. Even if the locals don’t have that same respect.

Wow, I never expected to leave the blog behind for so long. It started with one bad WIFI connection and then another and another (not that I have been able to locate excellent wifi since) and then came the preparations for a new design for the blog. That new design looks amazing and will come really soon but I didn’t want to leave the blog alone for much longer than I already have so here it is, finally a new post! I created so much content already traveling through India, Maldives, Laos and Cambodia already that I didn’t really know which post to start with first. I decided to go for one of the outfit shoots that I did right at the beginning. These photos were taken on the houseboat that we took to travel through the Kerala backwaters around Alleppey. This was truly a beautiful start to get to know India and I’ll show you more about this soon.

Traveling on the ‘superfast’ train (hint: it’s not fast at all) from Kottayam to Kovalam I wanted to put a quick post online. India so far has been fascinating and beautiful. I should actually say Kerala has been fascinating and beautiful because the provinces of India are quite different from each other. Internet connection however has been difficult to find. I’ve been hoping for hotels with WiFi but that is not a given here (me, an internet addict?). Apart from my internet connection it has become quite clear that India takes control over a lot more. Time is one of the main things, India is going to decide what your life is going to look like. It’s no longer in your control, so lay back and enjoy.

I know, I have been teasing you all a bit with the news I have been wanting to share. I gave away quite a few clues on my birthday and I’m so excited to tell all. When I turned 26, I wrote an article about what I wanted to achieve before I turned 30. It was scary to write but I felt like it resonated with a lot of you guys. I wanted clear goals, steps and a direction to follow in the hopes that all will go according to plan. A year later, I still want those steps and goals but it turns out that life just isn’t that simple and that, sometimes, you have to discover it along the way. But then again, if life would be predictable, what would be the fun in it anyway?

A birthday always requires for some sort of birthday wishlist. As I’m currenlty plotting several plans, most of these wants are of a very functional -but beautiful- nature. Around this time last year I wrote this article which has played a very active role in the past year. I’m very excited about the up-and-coming year and look forward to spilling the beans to you as well. For now I will leave you with this moodboard, a little explanation below and the tips that you can find within this board. It won’t be that difficult to figure out!
