Assam, North East India - for the tea (and toy trains).
Rajasthan, India for all the amazing forts & historic hotels.
Alladale, Scotland for rewilding my soul.
One thing I can't travel without...
A journal and pen.
Two truths, one lie:

I once spent the night in an Indian railway station.
I've helped release Lynx into the Scottish wilderness.
