    The "B.C. Effect"

    The "B.C. Effect"

    When my friends and family read the title of this story, they will no doubt roll their eyes and say something along the lines of, "OK, OK, we get it - B.C. is the best place on earth...now shut it and move on!" And honestly, I wouldn't blame them. I haven't shut up about how beautiful the Western-most province of Canada is since I came back home to Ontario in July. But - can you really blame me for this?! There's just something about that province that was able to completely flip my perspective and mindset. Having grown up in the suburbs outside of Toronto, I typically think of "nature" as being up at a cottage in the Muskokas. Yes, we have lovely, curated trails to walk and bike through, with beautiful trees and gardens. But...nothing, and I mean NOTHING, compares to the majesty of British Columbia.

    Why are black people don't go for camping?

What about Anna, who grew up in Macclesfield, a rocky outcrop in the Peak region? "What can I do for you?" he asks, busy. Email, on the other hand, never even considered putting it in a tent.

    Invisible No Longer

    Invisible No Longer

    In the 1800’s, when New Zealand was colonised, the ancient and sacred female tattooing practice of moko kauae began to fade away. Its very existence was placed under threat alongside the spiritual culture and identity of Māori. Yet, what was initially thought to be lost by the devastating impact of colonisation, has now begun to blossom once again; meaning that a whole new generation of Māori women can wear their identity with pride.

    I'm nothing without Travel Industry

    I'm nothing without Travel Industry

    You might think that the title is a bit of exaggeration but let's be honest... It's been half a year since we were forced to "stay home" and I don't see the end of it. Again, you might think I'm exaggerating but we all thought it would be gone by summer. Then the summer came along and somehow nothing changed. Now we are going into the fall and all the restrictions seem to come back, stay the same or simply not go away any time soon. It makes me wonder if the travel industry will survive all of that? Are we ever going to travel the way we used to?

    In Search of Serenity

    In Search of Serenity

    The Butchart Gardens are without a doubt one of the most majestic and fantasy-like places I have ever visited in my life. The Japanese Gardens in particular, especially with good morning light and peak Autumn colors; are nothing short of amazing. I came here early one Autumn morning and managed to get in just after the place opened. I paid my $30 entry fee and immediately started speed-walking to the Japanese Gardens. I was so excited to visit this place that I had always heard about but never visited. And I was even more excited to finally have the chance to photograph it. Plus, I came on a midweek day when there weren't as many people in the park so I could better enjoy this gem in solitude.

    MY LOVELY TATTOO

    MY LOVELY TATTOO

    It all happened when I was visiting my parents in Connecticut! My niece asked me if I wanted to get a tattoo, I told her Yes. The next day she had off work and we went to the tattoo place. When we arrived there we talked to the artist and let her know what we wanted. I wanted the tattoo on my ankle, and I wanted a picture of a vine with a bird on it. My niece wanted a more simple tattoo than I did. We waited in the waiting room for about an hour. Then the artist called us into the room and showed the drawing to us. I said to her I really liked it and I wanted her to do it. My niece also liked hers and she wanted the artist to do the tattoo. The artist cautioned us it would hurt. I told her that I could stand the pain and I wanted it done.

    The year of 2020 is not making anything easier to anyone. Hollywood productions were shut down throughout the last several months due to the pandemic. Barely any of the major Hollywood productions are back in production, but at least one (The Batman) has been shut down again due to someone in the production being tested positive for COVID. This can happen with other productions. This pandemic is also affecting Disney World. Although the coronavirus had caused the delays for other attractions and developments, Disney is still prioritizing their Star Wars hotel to open.

    Why do I live in Delhi?

    Why do I live in Delhi?

    I have been living in Delhi for the past 30 years. After my marriage, I shifted from Jaipur to Delhi and never looked back. But nowadays, I am often asked this question – ‘Why do you still live in Delhi?’ The question doesn’t surprise me. Delhi had been facing lots of issues recently. The traffic jams were always there, but the rising pollution levels are really a health hazard. In recent years, the city had witnessed some of the most horrific crimes against women and it is not safe to go alone at night. Recent riots in Delhi have only aggravated the situation. But I still prefer to live in Delhi. One of the major reasons is the habit. This has been my home for decades and I have become used to the city, its roads, its people, and the environment. I am not willing to adjust myself to a new city and new challenges. But there is much more which keeps me in Delhi.

    Why I traveled to Latin America what I learnt

    Why I traveled to Latin America what I learnt

    I was born in South London to Peruvian and British parents. Growing up, “Latinidad” didn't really have a meaning to me. It was simply just the way things were. Spanish was spoken at home, Peruvian food was served, we’d buy our food at the market and on Saturday mornings I’d have to get up to clean! Our friends were Peruvian too, so nothing felt unusual to me. Moreover, being raised in a multicultural environment like London taught me that everybody did things differently at home.
