This week, our first guest post about photography, we have Joanne and her words: “Travel with Joanne came about as the result of a personal challenge to explore Suburban Sydney and share my findings every fortnight. I write about and photograph what I see, the people I meet and the interesting things that I discover. After almost two years I haven’t missed a post even when traveling for six or more weeks.”
India is like no other country I have visited. It is colorful, chaotic and noisy and yet has a way of getting into your heart. Yes there is dust and heat, the traffic is crazy and the noise of the horns is overwhelming. But there is beauty everywhere, especially in the people. I was fortunate to win a ‘build’ in India with Habitat for Humanity to help build a house for people with insecure housing. I spent the most amazing week in a little village outside of Pondicherry, experiencing village life, getting to know the villagers and their children and providing labour for the build. Afterwards I spent two short weeks touring India by bus and train. As a person used to western comforts, traveling on local trains and busses was challenging and yet, provided some of the best travel memories. I wandered the streets, chatted to people and engaged with stall holders in markets. India really is incredible. Everyone should visit India at least once.
Beautiful Sydney looking back from the Taronga to Balmoral harbourside walk. Why did it take me so long to do this walk?
