4 months on

Hello! At the end of March I completed my Social Starters programme in Hyderabad. Since, I have been travelling Incredible India with family, friends and on my own. As I set into my last week here, making it 4 months since I arrived back in February, I am reflecting and attempting to put into words…

week 6 – all good things…

I’m currently lying in my Airbnb in Mumbai, a city which has sucked me in, spun me around and thrown me back out again! I realise I am extremely late to write about my last week Hyderabad but hey.. there’s no time like the present. The final week on the programme – in all honesty…

week 5 – dancing in the rain

I’m currently sitting by the backwaters in Alleppey, Kerala. It’s so peaceful and quiet, all I can hear are the very many birds swooping up and down the river and the rickety fan above me spinning away. This is worlds and worlds away from Hyderabad, if only a 2 hour flight away. I am now…

There are always tons of events and workshops here and always seems to be filled with lots of interesting, passionate looking conversations over chai (It’s a shame I don’t understand Hindi or Telugu). It’s a place I love to come and…

week 2 – culture club

When it comes to travel I am a real believer in quality over quantity. I much prefer to settle into one spot, really allowing myself to get under the skin of the culture, the people and the place. Last week in Hyderabad was truly a cultural immersion, which I loved every minute of. Firstly it…

week 1 – from Harrow to Hyderabad

It feels really quite crazy to think I have only been in India for only 10 days. It was quite a whirlwind when I first arrived, however I am now beginning to find a routine and feel very much comfortable living in the wonderful city that is Hyderabad. I landed in Hyderabad at 4am on…

an indian adventure

Hello! I recently joined the _Social Starters Immersion Programme in February, where I will be living in Hyderabad and working with the social enterprise Bamboo House India for 6 weeks. I am aiming to write a weekly series on my experiences in India (both work and play!). Before I begin, here is an introductory blog post…
