I’ve had a lot of inquiries lately about how I edit my pictures so I went ahead and brain-dumped all of my knowledge & the process into a new blog post! Link’s in my bio.

Also, for those of you asking if I have presets to sell... hopefully someday! I’ve spent a little over a year creating my own but I’m not confident enough to sell them yet. That’s something I’ve been working on for a while now, amidst all of my other millions of tasks, but maybe within the next 6 months or so I’ll have them on the market! 🤞🏼
🇬🇧 One more memory of sunny Brazil, arriving in Iguaçu. Funnily enough, the current cloudy and rainy weather seems to reflect the dark political times the country is going through.
🇪🇸 Un recuerdo más del Brasil soleado. Esto fue llegando a Iguazú. Curiosamente, este tiempo nublado y lluvioso parece reflejar el oscuro momento político que está viviendo el país.
*One little story filled with memories*
After arrival to north of Iran, we were stunned with the green and humid landscape. First night we spent somewhere in a shelter on someone’s garden, but then we finally got to the place we were there for. First part was just too touristy, but kinda funny too as the path to a castle called Qaleh Rudkhan was just too slippery and a lot of people just could not walk it. Though it was a magnificent place, we were in search for something else there. For a path that would lead us all the way on the other side of the mountains as we were aiming to hike from the jungle to the desert.
After a while of searching around the castle, we found something that looked like a path, but just so tiny and hidden that probably it was used by local shepherds only. Of course we went for it with no idea what to expect.
The path went just straight up the crazy slope, at few places we lost it, at few we almost fell down the slope as it was crazy dangerous at some spots like crossing crazy steep slope horizontally over loose soil covered by fallen leaves. At the evening we were still on the slope, so no flat space to lie on the ground so we had to set up our hammocks and make a shelter as it was drizzling. Does not matter that we were scared in the night of the animals, as we had no idea what can live in that jungle and we heard something big walking close by. When I got out it the morning and I saw this spot with our hammocks, it looked just perfect, beautiful and peaceful.
In the morning it was not far to get out of the jungle on the top of the mountains where we met few shepherds who offered us food and a sleepover, which has few funny stories as well, but that is for some other time. But for sure it has been my most difficult, craziest and most beautiful hike I have done so far. Just #keepsmilinginside@ospreyeurope#iamadventureproof .
Oh Lahore, no matter my intentions you find a way to pull me in longer than expected every time.
It's not so secret that Lahore is my favorite of Pakistan's major cities. Every time I visit, it feels like a bubbling cauldron of unknown depth and endless possibilities.
Passion for one's city makes all the difference to visitors, and Lahoris are not lacking in love for their home.
It's palpable when I visit. People are all too happy to offer recommendations and explanations about everything from chic coffee spots to hole in the wall street food joints, glamorous old havelis to manicured new parks.
You can eat at places built before partition, roam through relics crafted by Mughals, watch rituals from centuries ago that are still very much alive today... or you can cool down in AC bliss in malls made this decade or bright cafes over chai while watching the elite go by.
I love the enthusiasm and pride for this cultural capital, a world where old meets new and many people find a way to appreciate both.
There are so many places to see, so many foods to try, so much music to hear, so many people to meet, sometimes I don't know where to look or what to do. But this conundrum is one of the reasons I come back time and time again.
I love finding cute round houses like this 😍 It’s in the gardens of a Sissinghurst Castle - a home of English poet, novelist and garden designer Vita Sackville-West.
⠀ 🌿 The garden comprises a series of "rooms", amounting to ten in number, and was one of the earliest examples of this gardening style.
