Welcome to our blog, a creative collaboration between photographer and writer as we make our way through India. Both from Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK, we have undertaken 3 months of slow travel, gathering stories along the way to share.
For us, travel is about making connections with people & places, with a sense of community in mind and respect for local customs & traditions, as well as the natural environment. We want to get hands on involvement with change making projects and make an active positive contribution as we travel. This is why we will be spending some time volunteering along the way with a work exchange travel site called “workaway”. We’ll making sure we interact with as many people as possible everywhere we go so that we can learn all about how other people live.
