HOW TO

How to keep your cool in Sleeper Class Trains in India

As you may remember, leaving Mumbai was really hard for me – I’d just had the most incredible time with lovely people and really, really interesting events. I was also really curious as to whether I could imagine ever living in an Indian city. After three weeks, I’ll say I could – but it would […]

The NUMBER ONE thing you should be doing in Mumbai.

I can feel my heart breaking; I’ve not had a breakup like this since I was seventeen and adamant that Kurt Cobain was the only possible person who understood what I was going through. Well, Kurt Cobain and Avril Lavigne, but don’t tell anyone. This new relationship I’m in has only been for three weeks, […]

My most blissful moment in India… and it might surprise you!

Today I celebrated sixteen days in India. Actually, sixteen days in Mumbai to be precise. I certainly hadn’t planned to stay here in this city for so long, but as it turns out, Mumbai really is an incredible city to be in. I learned long ago that I really can be terrible at leaving – […]

& staying safe in India

How I was publicly masturbated at & staying safe in India.

A few days ago I was sitting in a bus stop in Mumbai, India. The local guy that I had paid no particular attention to moved closer. From the corner of my eye, to my horror, I realised that he had pulled out his penis and was masturbating, staring intently at me. I felt sick. […]

OFF (2)

Eat Pray Love & Workaway. I’m off again!

Readers, it’s time for me to head off again. “Where Lucy, where?” I hear you all cry. Well, to answer that, journey with me, all the way back to January 24th. (Okay, that’s only five weeks ago, but nevermind. We’re journeying). It was a Saturday evening and I’m ashamed to admit, I was not out […]

Lily-Dipping in Nong Kiaow

  I’ll admit – I was completely and utterly devastated to have to drag myself away from Luang Probang – a place where I’d found an incredible group of friends, gobbled my way through the all-you-can-eat buffet at the night market more than once (more than twice, more than three times, more than… oh, you […]

Life in Cambodia

A Day in the Life of… Living in Cambodia.

I have a feeling this blog post will be full of confessions. And apologies. I am learning that I apologise a lot. Since coming to Cambodia two and a half months ago, I would estimate that about 80% of my attempts at speaking Khmer (Cambodian) somehow include an apology. Anyway, my first apology comes in the […]

26. Waterfall hopping

A stolen camera and a conquered fear… Luang Probang.

Its funny travelling alone; you get really used to always looking out for yourself, making all the decisions, keeping an eye out on other people and just generally being a tiny bit more responsible than when you have your parents around to make your lunch. So, when I met the three lovely Norwegian girls on the […]
