6 Hidden Instagram Hotspots in Peru

Hi guys, I finally got my life (relatively) in order and wrote a new article for the National Student on six incredible hidden Instagram hotspots in Peru! Here’s an excerpt from the article, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it:

“With the likes of the stunning Amazon rainforest and the breathtaking ruins of Machu Picchu in its borders, Peru is already renowned for being one of the most picturesque and photo-worthy countries in the world. However, if you step off the beaten path in this South American country you can discover remarkable hidden gems just waiting to be photographed, taking your wanderlust and Insta stream to new heights.

 

1. Huayllay stone forest

In the open Peruvian fields of the Huayllay National Sanctuary, you can find a forest of stone, towering pillars rising impossibly into the sky.

Currently I am… October Edition

Hey guys, sorry I haven’t written in a while, these past few weeks have been hectic as I’ve been getting back into the swing of things at university and generally sorting my life out! Despite the busy-ness, I am so happy because this is my favourite time of year. I love everything from the falling leaves, to the smell of the air, to pumpkin spice lattes (ultimate white chick, I know), to the festiveness of Halloween in general.

Soon I’ll be writing some articles on recipes I’ve been loving lately and other Halloween-related things, but until then here is what I have been loving/thinking/feeling/doing this October:

Rainy Autumn Days in Utrecht

A few weeks ago I took a short trip to Tilburg in The Netherlands to visit a friend of mine who is doing a year abroad there. While I was there we took a day trip to Utrecht, a small picturesque city that is a bit like a mini Amsterdam. It was raining the whole time we were there but didn’t damper our fun at all as we wandered in and out of cafes, cute boutique shops and bookstores. Utrecht is such a vibrant, creative city and we were surprised by the number of independent shops and businesses. The canals glistened beautifully under fairy lights strung along the banks and were framed by trees bursting with autumn colours. The rain gave everything a special cosiness and it was such a care-free day full of serendipity so I wanted to share some of the photos I took with you guys…
