Experienced, even professional, skiers and boarders from all over the world come to Gulmarg for the endless opportunities exploring the backcountry terrain. I had no idea what I was in for. Will I ever belong here, will I ever fit in?Read More
The wild horse is like a mythical creature. Liminal; vanishing; in the world I grew up in – Europe – extinct. There was a species of wild horse there once, known as the Tarpan. Many native breeds trace their ancestry back to it, but the species itself was lost some time around the turn of the twentieth century.

Slow travel is an offshoot of the slow food movement, which began in Italy in the 1980s as a protest against the opening of a McDonald’s in Rome. The slow food movement aims to preserve regional cuisine, local farming, communal meals and traditional food preparation methods.

Lexi Connors headed to Europe to commence her 800km walk along the Camino de Santiago route. Read about her adventure on the blogRead More
