Rattled

INDIA | Sun, 7 Feb 2016 | By davidford | Views [149]

I was sitting in my room earlier today and reflecting on the last few days. The word 'rattled' came to my mind. Rattled as in fazed but also literally, as if something in my chest has been shaken loose and is bouncing around within the confines of my ... Read more >

Namaste Nepal- “I honour the place in you of which is love”.

NEPAL | Mon, 7 Dec 2015 | By gemma_laing | Views [647]

I have to admit, I was never keen to go to Nepal. On reflection, I guess it was a bit of ignorance. Perhaps ignorance is my biggest secret. I knew nothing about the country, the culture or the people, and for some reason I had no great desire to find ... Read more >
