THROUGH MY EYES
I LOVE to travel. To immerse fully in the culture, to really engage with the local people, sample the cuisine, dance along to their favourite music…
When I am travelling, exploring, connecting – THAT is when I feel most Alive & Inspired.
Travelling offers so much more in the way of experience and perspective.
I believe it truly broadens the mind.
During my years in Corporate, my idea of holiday heaven would be to spend a week in a luxury hotel in the Caribbean, lounging by the pool, visiting the spa, or reading a book at the beach. No need ever to leave the Hotel Complex. Those holidays served their purpose – for me, it really was the one week of the year where I would truly switch off and recharge.
But now, the idea of a week lounging by the pool does not inspire me at all. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy beautiful hotels and I will always love to spend time by the ocean and feel the warmth of the sand between my toes. But for a week to 10 days – definitely not.
These days, I’m inspired to take my camera or iPhone and explore my surroundings. To really ‘feel’ the magic of the place I’m visiting. I want to experience the energy, visit the market, interact with the locals, try some of the street foods, and learn more about the local cultures.
In this part of my website, I invite you to join me on my adventures and to experience the world ‘through my eyes’.
I don’t profess to be a professional photographer nor a tour guide or food critic.
