Spring has sprung

Nothing like big fluffy clouds of petals… Ah Spring in London’s park, in that case St James’s park.

Hanging out

Met this big guy by Petra’s entrance. He was casually hanging out on his own and enjoying the sights. The colours, the coolness – I had to take a picture!

At the top

When visiting Petra, we picked a hike off the beaten track and which I very much recommend (map here). It took us uphill to the High Place which offers fantastic view of the ancient city (the archaeological site is huge!), then to the hidden Garden Complex and finally sent us back toward the Colonnaded street. It is physically challenging but really worth it as you end up in very quiet ‘neighbourhoods’.

The horde

When you enter Petra National Trust you will be welcomed by a horde of people and horses. You are given the choice to hike through the canyon to the Treasury or horse ride there. Jordan is full of surprises which you just have to embrace to make it a memorable trip!

La vie en rose

Talk about perfect timing! I was just leaving my hotel in Bo-Kaap when this little girl and her mum walked by this pink house with matching outfits and accessories. A photographer dream!

Ratan galore

On this raining winter day in London, I am day-dreaming of spring and picnic in the park. The picnic culture is huge in the UK. It feels like people are so used to the grim weather that at the first ray of sunshine the entire London meets at the park for a food feast!

Desert adventure

If you are visiting Jordan, a desert safari in Wadi Rum is a must! The place looks like Mars, all the guides live there and are genuine Bedouins. A real adventure!

People watching

When in New York go for brunch at The Spotted Pig. The restaurant is old school and cosy. The burgers are to die for, and I am obsessed with their shoestring fries and everything else on the menu!

Sometime everything is in the details… I took this picture at the V&A in London. If you are visiting, I highly recommend grabbing a cuppa and a slice of cake in the most beautiful museum cafe you may ever come across.

Sometime there is something very poetic about your daily commute. A shadow, a building, a silhouette,… It makes you forget for a few seconds that it is  7:45am and rainy.
