Another absolute fave from Myanmar. This guy was just chilling outside a place where we stopped to have lunch after a hike, and I immediately saw the perfect photo opportunity. I asked if I could take his picture and like all the lovely people in Myanmar he said yes. I just wish I’d been able to ask his name! . Much of the time taking a great travel photo is about 90% luck, and 10% being able to recognise the opportunity and grab it. This was definitely one of those times!

Another colourful portrait from Myanmar. This lady works in an artisan workshop making the brightly-coloured paper parasols you see all over the country. I thought she was just beautiful! ☂️☂️☂️ What’s your favourite thing to take photos of when you travel? . . #myanmar #burma #umbrella #parasol #portraitphotography @portraitsoftheworld #photooftheday #picoftheday #myanmar🇲🇲 #visitmyanmar #yangon #myanmartrip #instatravel #wanderlust #travelgram #travelbug #travelholic #doyoutravel #roamtheplanet #travelmore #lovetotravel

Thought I’d revisit some of my favourite portraits from Myanmar. I found this lady in 26th Street Market in Yangon. She’s selling deep fried locusts... but I must admit I was too chicken to try one! 🦗🦗🦗 What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever tried while travelling? . . . #myanmar #burma #market #marketphotography #portraitphotography #photooftheday #picoftheday #myanmar🇲🇲 #visitmyanmar #smilesmilesmile #happyface #yangon #myanmartrip

Since I’m on a roll now, here’s one more of the photos that’s up for best photography at the travel media awards 2019! I took this in January in the Sahara desert in Morocco. We stayed in a glorious luxury campsite and rode camels up to the top of the highest sand dune to watch the sun set over the desert with a glass of wine. I was a bit worried about the ethics of riding camels, but these ones looked calm and very well-cared for and we had seen them resting in the shade for a good hour before we rode them. Plus the journey was only about 10 minutes so I thought that was OK. What do you think? 🐪🐪🐪 If you’d like to see the post this came from and the other photos, you can find it on the blog.

Another of the photos that earned me a place in the final of the best photography category at the TRAVEL MEDIA AWARDS 2019! I took this in January in the Sahara desert in Morocco. That’s our very lovely luxury desert campsite down below. We’d just watched the sunset from the top of a sand dune, then we all went back to the camp, and while the rest of the group relaxed with a drink I grabbed my tripod and struggled back up the sand dune to take some photos. Think it was worth the effort! . If you’d like to see the post this came from and the other photos, you can find it on the blog.

OMG! 😲 Thanks to this photo and a few others I’m a FINALIST in the best photography category at the TRAVEL MEDIA AWARDS 2019! That means a fancy awards dinner in October and the chance to meet some of the travel media’s most talented creators and editors! I can’t quite believe it!

At the hairdresser yesterday I was chatting with the stylist about how important hair is to us. It’s probably one of the least useful bits of our anatomy and yet one of the most important to our sense of identity and wellbeing. As a curly girl I got massively bullied at school and it’s only been in my 30s that I really learned how to manage and love my curls. I really think if I’d had the hair I have now in my teens I’d be an entirely different person today!

Another Turkey sunset, this one taken in Canakkale looking across the Dardanelles Strait. This is the border between Asia and Europe, I’m standing in Asia looking towards Europe. . I spent AGES stalking these fishermen trying to get this just right, while my fresh grilled fish got cold on the table behind me! 😂

Another Dardanelles sunset, this one taken from the gorgeous beachfront fish restaurant where we had dinner. The second photo is the restaurant - can you think of a more perfect place to sit, eat Mezze and grilled fish straight from the sea, and watch the sun go down? 🌅 . . . #sunset #sunsetbeach #sunsetlover #sunset_pics #sunset_love #turkey #canakkale #beautiful_world #beautifuldestinations #bluehour #bluehourphotography #travel #travelphotoblog #travelphotooftheday #picoftheday #photooftheday #dardanelles #coloursofthesky #coloursoftheworld #turkey_home #turkeytravel #discoverturkey #visitturkey

One of the things I didn’t expect about this part of northeast Turkey was the amazing sunsets! As the sun goes down they’re not all that, but after it dips below the horizon the colours are incredible! Especially the way they reflect off the waters of the Dardanelles Straits. Where’s the best sunset you’ve ever seen? 🌅 . . . #sunset #sunsetbeach #sunsetlover #sunset_pics #sunset_love #turkey #troy #canakkale #beautiful_world #beautifuldestinations #bluehour #bluehourphotography #sunlounger #travel #travelphotoblog #travelphotooftheday #picoftheday #photooftheday

As a TV Producer, I’m incredibly lucky that I get to travel to some amazing places. As a Photographer, I find it very frustrating that I rarely get any time to properly explore and photograph them. . We’re always rushing around on a tight schedule, with very little time to relax. . This week I’m in Turkey. We arrived at our hotel in Istanbul at 7.30 pm, so I had about 45 minutes before we had to meet the rest of the team for dinner. . It was just about enough time to walk from the hotel up to the famous Hagia Sophia mosque and take a few photos of the surrounding area. . There was no time to explore or go inside, and these photos are just snapshots, but I hope they give you some impression of what it was like as the sun set on my first evening in Istanbul. . Afterwards, we had dinner on our hotel’s rooftop terrace, with views overlooking both the Bosphorus and the Blue Mosque. Not bad, Istanbul. Not bad at all. . . . #turkey #turkey🇹🇷 #turkeytravel #discoverturkey #istanbul #istanbulcity #hagiasofia #hagiasophia #bluemosque #travelphotography #travel #behindthescenes #tvproducers

Keeping with the rainbow theme, here’s rather a good one I spotted after a brief shower in Italy last month. Taken from Pozzuoli looking across the bay of Naples. The island is Nisida - do you think there’s a pot of gold there? 🌈 . . . #pride #pride2019 #pridemonth2019 #pride2019🏳️‍🌈 #rainbow #rainbow🌈 #rainbowsofinstagram #stormysky #naplesitaly #pozzuoli #italytravel #italylovers #italylandscape #bayofnaples #italian_trips #italian_places #italyphotolovers #italyphoto #potofgold #travel #travelphotography #travelbloggers #aftertherain #rainydays #doublerainbow

[AD] This is the incredible view from the top of Monte Casale in the Comano district of Trentino, Northern Italy. Trentino is right at the top of Italy, on the edge of the Italian Alps, so it's no surprise the region feels very Alpine! ⁠ I thought we were going to have to hike up to the top of the mountain but instead we were given e-bikes which made the whole thing so much quicker and easier!⁠ In winter this mountain is covered with snow, but in June when I went it was full of wild flowers and humming with bees. From the top you can see down into Lakes Toblino, Santa Massenza, and Cavedine, which I think is the one you can see behind me.⁠ #gifted⁠ Photo by @nellie_winter .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #visitacomano#visittrentino⁠ #trentinowow#traverseevents⁠ #trentinotravel⁠ #trentinodavivere⁠ #trentinolovers⁠ #northernitaly⁠ #italianalps⁠ #italytravel#italy_photolovers#beautifuldestinations#dolomitesmountains#traveladdict#traveleurope#traveltheworld#whatitalyis⁠ #ebike⁠ #gooutside⁠ #beautifulview⁠ #mountainlove#getoutside#feelthealps⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #montecasale⁠ #bikelife ⁠ ⁠ @traverseevents@visittrentino@visitacomano⁠ ⁠

[AD] I'd never been on an e-bike before I tried one in Italy a couple of weeks ago. As part of a trip around the region of Trentino in Northern Italy, we rode e-bikes up to the top of Monte Casale near the town of Comano.⁠ .⁠ The road was STEEP! If they'd made me ride a push bike I'd never have managed, I would definitely have had to get off and push! But on an e-bike it was a breeze... just a bit of gentle pedalling and we comfortably made our way to the top (except for when I skidded on a loose stone and nearly fell off!) I would never have considered a cycling holiday in the Alps before, but e-bikes are a real game-changer.⁠ .⁠ And what a view when we got to the top. Stunning alpine meadows filled with wildflowers, and the snow-capped peaks of the Dolomites off in the distance. Breathtaking.⁠ #gifted⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #visitacomano#visittrentino⁠ #trentinowow#traverseevents⁠ #trentinotravel⁠ #trentinodavivere⁠ #trentinolovers⁠ #northernitaly⁠ #italianalps⁠ #italytravel#italy_photolovers#beautifuldestinations#dolomitesmountains#traveladdict#traveleurope#traveltheworld#whatitalyis⁠ #ebike⁠ #gooutside⁠ #beautifulview⁠ #mountainlove#getoutside#feelthealps⁠ #bikestagram ⁠ ⁠ #bikelife#instabike#electricbike#bikelove⁠ @traverseevents@visittrentino@visitacomano⁠ ⁠

Flashback to this time two weeks ago when I was on my way to the beautiful region of Trentino in Italy for #Traverse19. [Gifted trip] I’ve been to Italy a few times but I’d never even heard of Trentino! What a mistake! This region is stunning, with the jaw-dropping Dolomite mountains, rivers, canyons and rolling scenery. It’s a very different side of Italy, less decadence and relaxation, more adventure! 🏔 📸 Photo by @germanbackpacker . . . #italy🇮🇹 #italytravel #bellaitalia #travelblogger #travel #welcometoitaly #italy_photolovers #bellaitalia #travelphotography #beautifuldestinationsaroundworld #beautifuldestinations #visittrentino #trentinowow #travellersdiary #travellover #dolomitesmountains #travelgram #traveladdict #traveldeeper #traveleurope #traveltheworld #canyon #gorge #riverlife #rivers #riveradventures #limarogorge #sarca #sarcariver

First day back at work today and I’m missing Trento! I’d never even heard of Trento before I went there for the #Traverse19 bloggers conference but I really fell for this chilled, colourful, pretty city with its quiet, brightly-painted streets, sunny squares and gorgeous views. If you’re planning a trip to Italy I highly recommend you check it out! . . #italy🇮🇹 #italytravel #bellaitalia #travelblogger #travel #welcometoitaly #italy_photolovers #bellaitalia #travelphotography #skylinephotography #skylinelicious #beautifuldestinationsaroundworld #beautifuldestinations #coloursofitaly #trento #visittrentino #trentinowow #travellersdiary #travellover #dolomitesmountains #travelgram #traveladdict #traveldeeper #traveleurope #traveltheworld

Gorgeous lavender in full bloom in the gardens at Buonconsiglio Castle in Trento. The castle was founded in the 13th century and is full of stunning rooms with beautiful artwork, but these peaceful and fragrant gardens were definitely my favourite part🌷🌿 . . . #trento #trentino #visittrentino @visittrentino #traverse19 #castle #castles #historylovers #gardenofthegods #gardens #beautifulgardens #beautifulgarden #italytravel #gardenphotography #gardeninspiration #castles_oftheworld #lavender #beautiful_destinations #italian_city #italian_places #italianplaces
