Every year we try to visit Chennai at least for a few weeks to see my husband’s family and friends. And every year, without fail, there is always at least one day of temple hopping. My in-laws are very religious, and they love taking us around to as many temples as possible.(more…)
The strength and resilience of Chennai was brought to the forefront during the devastating floods these past few weeks. We decided that this was the perfect time to release this video, as a source of hope and inspiration that we can return to the Chennai that we all know and love. Chennai will come back stronger and more united than ever before.
Stormy weather makes for some interesting skies! I’m not 100% sure what is going on here, but my best guess is the sun is hidden behind the clouds and illuminating the clouds behind it.. as for the rainbows in the clouds, I have no idea how that is happening. Regardless, it was beautiful to see!
I have returned to Chennai, India, and will most likely spend the rest of the year here! 🙂 So stay tuned for pictures from my adventures here!
The above image is the view from the terrace of my in-laws’ house. I will never get tired of palm trees! 🙂
Three months ago today, I was travelling through the mountains of Kerala, India with my husband while on our honeymoon. As I sit in my room today in Toronto on this beautiful day, I can’t help but feel that tug in my heart to go exploring again. I’m currently saving up for my next adventure, and I can not wait until it happens!
One of my favourite things about Kerala (besides elephants and boathouses and spending time with my husband), was the beautiful landscapes! There was no shortage of natural beauty, no matter where we went! Being back in the concrete jungle of Toronto, I truly miss all the greenery and mountains that constantly surrounded us.

The snow is melting, the geese are back, and the weather is getting warmer! Happy Spring everyone!
Sometimes, I think we all should just stop focusing so much on what’s in front of us and simply look up. You never know what you will see. I enjoy looking up. Usually I look up at the clouds and smile at the sky, thinking how lucky I am to be who I am and have what I have. It’s my personal way of thanking the Universe (or God). This picture was taken at Fort Cochin. It was our last day in kerala, and I was pretty tired and grumpy from the heat. But, I happened to look up and see this beautiful crow sitting magestically, looking up as well. It felt like a personal reminder from the Universe, to stop being grumpy and be happy that you are with your husband on your honeymoon exploring places you’ve never been before.
At Allepey Beach, I saw this heron, gazing out at the ocean. Occasionally it would take a few steps closer to the water, but when the waves start rolling in, it would run back to higher ground. This continued for hours. I wondered if this was a way of getting food. Was there fish or crabs coming ashore with the waves? I don’t know for sure, but it was amazing to watch. There were moments where it would stand in one spot and just stare out at the sea for a very long time, regardless of waves rolling in. And I wondered what it was thinking. What does it see? What does it smell?
