Inspiration Through Travel – Photo Report 2017

This photo report accompanied by a few comments is all about trying to summarise the cultural and inspirational nourishment I get when travelling and visiting global cities. There’s something about moving through unfamiliar spaces, and navigating cultural differences that resets your capacity to experience life anew.

What a year! It started with us leaving St Petersburg and going back to Rio de Janeiro via Ukraine. We spent our last few months in Brazil visiting Niterói, Ilha Grande, Iguaçu Falls. Got back to the UK in July just in time for a big family celebration in York. Celebrating our friends’ wedding in Lebanon was a highlight. Again we found ourselves in Ukraine and finally settled down in London.
