SOUTH INDIA

IMG_8295-19.jpg

MAGICAL BACKWATERS, UNFORGETTABLE FACES
AND AN INTENSLEY TROPICAL LANDSCAPE

India has remained high on my list for as long as I have been in love with travel and after spending a few more days than planned in Sri Lanka's favourite surf spot Arugam Bay, it was finally time to go. I decided to start at the bottom, in the South West state of Kerala, a place hugely popular amongst local and foreign travellers alike, famous for its beaches, backwaters and gorgeous tea-covered hillscapes. A world a way from the energetic and frenetic India we've come to know through movies and stories, Kerala was a serenely beautiful introduction to a country so overflowing with colour, charisma and culture...

SRI LANKA

SUNSET SWELLS, TRAIN ESCAPES AND PALM FRINGED

SHORES - SRI LANKA IS HARD NOT TO LOVE

After four months back home in London recovering from a shoulder surgery, I was desperate to get back on track with my adventure in Asia - starting with Sri Lanka. Maybe I was a little too eager booking a one-way ticket without any research on this stunning little island, but then again, maybe I was all the better for it. I arrived with eyes wide open and no expectations or plans and fell madly in love with its tropical coasts and lowlands, lush green hills and mountains, welcoming faces, smiles and of course, its spectacular train rides...

MYANMAR


ENDLESS ENERGY, BRIGHT RED SMILES

AND CENTURIES OLD STUPAS

When I heard the Thai islands were flooded, I knew I needed to alter my plans and find a way to stay north for a while. Myanmar was brought to my radar earlier in the year when a friend who'd travelled there told me I'd be a fool not to go when visiting Asia. I saw one photo of Bagan and was convinced I had to see this place with my own eyes. I flew out on December 9th and for two weeks was captive to the incredible charm and colourful character of this place, a melting pot of Asian culture and a devastating clash of incredible landscape and impoverished community - this is a place you have to experience first hand. We travelled to the gritty capital of Yangon, then upward to Inle Lake, through magical Bagan and finally to Mandalay. Here are some of my favourite captured moments along the way...

BARCELONA


A VALENTINES ESCAPE TO ONE OF MY
FAVOURITE CITIES WITH MY FAVOURITE GIRL

With a shared appreciation for one of Spain's most popular cities, I surprised Antonia with a valentines trip to Barcelona. We spent four days staying in an Air BnB, roaming through the old and the new and of course, spending some time on the beach. I'd been once before when I was a little younger, but exploring this city this time round with Toto was so much fun. Take me back!

ITALY


TWO ASIANS AND A GREEK TAKE ON

THREE OF ITALY'S MOST VISITED CITIES

Having all become such good friends at University, we celebrated our graduation with an unforgettable trip to Amsterdam. Two years later and it was time for a reunion and Italy was at the top of the list. Training through Pisa, Florence and Rome we got to spend just over a week exploring one of my favourite countries in Europe.

HONG KONG + CHINA


ART GALLERIES, HOT POTS, CONCRETE JUNGLES

MY FIRST TASTE OF FASCINATING ASIA

After hearing that one of our good friends was stopping off in Hong Kong and China during his travels, my brother and I impulsively decided to join him. After a 12 hour flight we landed in Hong Kong, the furthest I'd been away from home and in a place so culturally different to what I was used to. We stayed in Hong Kong for four days before heading to China for two weeks, travelling on over-night trains through Beijing, Xi'an, Suzhou and Shanghai. Here are some of my shots along the way.

AMSTERDAM


Crawling on the roadside
Swinging from the street lights

 

Last weekend I ventured to Amsterdam, taking Antonia to experience the city for the first time. We spent four days exploring the diverse neighbourhoods of the capital, flitting from vintage shops to artsy cafés to museums, getting lost in the the narrow streets and tangled canals of the city...

CYPRUS


BEACHES, SOUVLA AND UNREAL LANDSCAPES

WELCOME TO MY HOME AWAY FROM HOME

 

Whilst born in London, my roots remain in Cyprus. Both my Grandad from my Dad's side and my Grandmother from my Mum's are one of over ten siblings, which means my family over in Cyprus in pretty big, and since I was a baby it's been my home away from home. Some of my earliest memories have been from our summers spent there. Here are some of my snaps taken over the last five years...

JÖNKÖPING


SNOW, SUN AND FUN WITH

ANTONIA IN HER HOMETOWN

After meeting in London and spending almost a year together in my city, Antonia ventured back home to start planning her education. As sad I was to see her leave the little life we'd built in London, my visits to Sweden were always amazing. Snowy beaches and duvet days in the winter, beautiful sunshine and endless cafe life in the summer...
