Last night was so magical 🎐 #YeePeng
Sunday morning, hanging out with the king of the Konso people. He thinks tourism is generally a good thing but asks visitors not to throw plastic bottles away, to separate their rubbish into biodegradable (fruit etc) and non, and to 💩 responsibly if they’re camping.
On my quest for photos of my local area this morning, I visited the Stable Yard Studios at the back of Cockington Court in Torquay.
I watched an artisan glass blower at work and perused crafts made of wood, metal and slate.
Such a fab place.
Wandering around the streets of St Petersburg is the best way to discover some of the city’s hidden gems. But sometimes the streets themselves are the stars of the show. How beautiful are they? 😍💕
Spain's menú del día offers great value and the chance to try new dishes you wouldn’t otherwise go for 😋
Well, this is a bleak read*. Support your local independent restaurants, everyone.
