✈️IT’S HERE! My Sustainable Packing List for India! 🇮🇳
This guide is EXACTLY what you need for your next trip to India - it’s comprehensive, covers everything from clothing to footwear to toiletries to zero-waste items! Most of the things I’ve listed are items I’ve personally taken with me, so they’ve been tried, tested and work! I’ve been there more than 10x, lived there for 6 months a few years ago and most of my family still live there, so my knowledge of what you’ll need is pretty spot on 👌🏽
Most of the blogs and sites you’ll find online cover what you’ll need if you’re backpacking. I wanted to provide a sustainable option as well as one that was for a more elevated experience - think rooftop bars, lounges, palaces and beautiful hotels. There’s a widespread misconception that India is rugged, dusty and hard, and while it most definitely is those things, it’s also incredibly luxurious, modern and dreamy☁️
This guide has some awesome clothing options that are modest but still stylish, ethical and beautiful. And the best part is that this guide isn’t just for India - use it for ANY country you’re visiting that’s slightly more modest. Think places like Morocco, Egypt, Oman, Jordan, Turkey, Malaysia etc.!🗺
I had the pleasure of working with some incredible brands on this guide, including some faves like @email@example.com@treefairfax@loganandfinley@matterprints and @arraeicollective . What I love even more is that all of these pieces transition so well into your everyday life, so the clothes you buy for your trip (if you need to buy anything), can extend far beyond the few weeks that you’re away for ♾

There’s nothing like a change of perspective to beat those Monday blues... 💙
Brighten up #bluemonday by meeting some of Wrocław's most famous residents...
Across the city track down over 300 miniature gnome statues spread throughout Wrocław, one of Poland’s oldest cities located on the banks of the Odra River. The little guards of the city began are constantly rising, now in excess of 300. Equip yourself with a special map available at visitor centres and the mobile app to attempt to find all the gnomes, exploring the different stories behind them 💙
We are all human, and all of us live with some kind of pain and fears at some point or another...the secret for me, to help to not loose the inspiration, encouragement, the spark and the motivation is to never loose sight of the simple everyday miracles in life, focusing on that simple beauty, like closing your eyes and feeling the soft warm light of the sun on your skin, the the depth and the relief we feel in our inbreaths, a good read, laughter, beautiful music that melts or lightens your heart, nurturing conversations, art, and wonderful nature with its magnificent healing power. We deserve this little miracles, we deserve the peace, the ease, of this unrepeatable present moment.
To whatever we resist it persists, wether it is pain or change, by resisting these we are resisting life because everything in it is impermanent.
Tension and flow are one same force, which only vary according to our inner resistance.
When we flow we grow.
Today I choose to flow, and to find the good and the beauty around me💖 .
Todos somos humanos, y todos vivimos con algún tipo de dolor y miedo en algún momento u otro...el secreto para mí, que me ayuda a no perder la inspiración, el ánimo, la chispa y la motivación es nunca perder de vista de los simples milagros cotidianos en la vida, enfocándose en esa simple belleza, como cerrar los ojos y sentir la suave luz cálida del sol en la piel, la profundidad y el alivio que sentimos en nuestras inhalaciones, una buena lectura, risas, hermosa música que derrite o alegra tu corazón, ricas conversaciones, arte y la naturaleza maravillosa con su magnífico poder curativo.
Nos merecemos estos pequeños milagros, merecemos la paz, la facilidad, de este momento presente irrepetible.
A lo que sea que te resistes, persiste, ya sea al dolor o al cambio, al resistirlos, resistimos la vida porque todo en ella es impermanente.
La tensión y la fluidez son una misma fuerza, que solo varía según nuestra resistencia interna.
Cuando fluimos, crecemos.
Hoy elijo fluir y ver la belleza y lo bueno a mi alrededor💖

Tribù datoga: sono i nostri vicini di casa, con i maasai ci passano molto tempo e ci conviviamo benissimo. Le foto vi mostrano un viso, non sono dipinti, non usano cammuffarsi nella loro normale quotidianità, li si riconosce da alcuni "segnetti" sugli zigomi, "assomigliano ai baffi del gatto". Benvenuti in Tanzania alla Scoperta del Villaggio Masai e le tribù della savana.

le foto scattate a "tradimento" sono sempre le più belle, ti mostrano come sei.... Con il popolo maasai si vive di emozioni, ogni giorno passato vivendo con loro è una nuova scoperta, questa esperienza mi sta insegnando a vivere di semplicità, non mi importa più il vestito all'ultima moda, ho scelto la gioia di vivere serena e felice tra le mie tribù della savana !!!!

There are still amazing places hidden in Munnar to explore !
And still beautiful as it is untouched and undiscovered.
Mankulam is one such place where I found mysterious histories and interesting stories to dive into the beauty of Munnar! 🍃
Do you know !!
The very first ancient road during British era from Munnar to Kochi was through >
Letchmi estates, Mankulam forests, Pooyamkutty -Pindimedu - Kuttanpuzha - Thattekad , Periyar river cross, and directly to Kothamangalam - Aluva - Kochi by trek 🤗 .
The Old Alvy- Munnar road known as 'Rajapatha' in histories made to transport tea from Munnar by British Residents!
And completely damaged and became a dense Forest path after the 1924 Kerala Flood , referred to as "തൊണ്ണൂറ്റി ഒമ്പതിലെ വെള്ളപ്പൊക്കം"
Later a new route was made through Neriyamangalam, that most of us travel through now !
And Munnar - Mankulam- Letchmi estates- Kallar- Adimaly -Neriyamangalam- Kothamangalam still exist as sacred Beauty of innermost portion of Mama Munnar 😌!
Happy History of Mankulam-Munnar!
New Year's Resolution #2 : Meditation. 🧘
I'm going to be honest. I HATE meditating. I have tried it on several occasions and have a really hard time getting into it. That being said, it's so good for mental health, focus, and gratitude that I think it's important I continue to try. I'm going to meditate just for a short time twice a week to start and see if I can stay consistent with that. 🧘
I've tried headspace and I did enjoy that, and I recently downloaded Calm. For the full subscription though it's rather expensive. Does anyone have any recommendations for free beginner meditation apps or videos?
