Ain’t no joy like reading under a gorgeous old rain tree, as the first rays of the rising sun slowly filter in 😍⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ When I first arrived at @bruntonboatyard_cghearth, I was convinced it was atleast a 100 years old. The intricate wooden ceilings with Dutch and Portuguese influences. The “pankhas” - once manually worked by a “pankhawala” to keep it cool. The tea lounge reminiscent of the British era. The arched walls and windows. The old school switchboards. But turns out, it was built… Tea Lounge, Wooden Ceilings, Keep Cool, Kochi, Rising Sun, Portuguese, Travel Photos, Old School, Dutch

It wasn’t love at first sight when I first came here some 8 years ago. But cycling under the crescent moon, with the waves of the Arabian Sea crashing in my ears and the salty breeze on my cheeks, I can’t keep myself from falling in love. ⁣⁣ ⁣ After nearly a month of living in a remote village in Tamil Nadu, with only the sun, stars and rolling hills for company, I wondered how we’d adapt to the world outside. Turns out, it’s easy to adapt to the laid-back tropical life here. Arabian Sea, Kochi, Love At First Sight, Sailing Ships, Breeze, Travel Photos, Ears, Remote, The Outsiders

Found a vegan haven in Iran - Khalvat House - over a hundred year old traditional house in Isfahan, where a group of passionate Iranian vegans host travellers.  As Persian music plays in the howzkhaneh where I sit writing this over a cup of herbal tea and dates, I feel like I’m living in a Persian dream. Yet what I’m experiencing is (hopefully) the birth of a conscious vegan movement that will spread its wings across Iran... #theshootingstar #irantravel #digitalnomad #slowtravel Photography Tips, Travel Photography, Iran Tourism, Iran Travel, A Hundred Years, Slow Travel, Digital Nomad, Herbal Tea, Iranian

A few nights ago, in the desert oasis of Shefiabad near Kerman in Iran, we bundled up in our hosts’ car, and headed out into the Ka Luts desert in the dark of the night.  He knew the dunes like the back of his hand, and even in pitch darkness, he found his way up a beautiful dune, shut the car headlights and welcomed us to the land of stars. On that cold, dark night, under millions of stars and some shooting stars, there was no doubt in my mind. Iran is totally worth it.

This can’t be earth. This might be a slice of Mars that broke away. Or alien land that landed up in the Persian Gulf. This must be somewhere else... Spent some absolutely surreal days exploring Qeshm and Hormuz islands in Iran - of which the latter is believed to be the youngest island to have emerged out of the sea, some 4 million years ago. #theshootingstar #irantravel #slowtravel Iran Travel, Slow Travel, Mars, Travel Photos, Landing, Persian, Exploring, Grand Canyon, Islands

It’s one thing to scale the walls of an century temple and jostle for space with a dozen other travellers to catch one of Bagan’s magical, mist-drenched sunrises; quite another to get away from the crowds and seek out the real Bagan.

Before we left for Iran, many people asked why. My parents couldn’t fathom why I’d want to travel to a country where I’d have to cover my head the entire time. My friends warned me that entering the US after this trip might be quite challenging.  I won’t try to explain why. But I’ll tell you that being in Shiraz makes me feel part of a universal soul. As though I’ve become the words of a beautiful poem that transcends time, borders and languages... #theshootingstar #irantravel Iran Travel, Poems Beautiful, Explain Why, I Win, Languages, Travel Photos, Taj Mahal, Parents, Around The Worlds
