My stay in Salvador was an opportunity to self-reflect, and in doing so I centred my reflection around my ancestry... Who am I?, and who would I have been had my Tabom ancestors not left Salvador da Bahia, Brazil around the year of 1835?I sought a photographer I could collaborate with to share insight into...

I arrived in Salvador da Bahia, the land my Tabom ancestors left close to 200 years ago for their freedom in West Africa, more specifically Accra Ghana (then the Gold Coast).

Memories of a Christmas Wonderland… Czech it out!
A few years ago when I went with my sister to Prague for our Christmas holiday, we lost ourselves in the sheer size and beauty of the Christmas markets and not to mention the marvel of the romantic city…
This year I can’t be in Europe to experience the novelty. But if it’s a warming cup of mulled wine, creative handcrafted gifts, smells to excite my senses, then thankfully I can find all those in London… But it’s not quite the same! I can’t help but to reminisce on my Christmas couchsurfing adventure with my sister two years ago…
You might be lucky enough to find some last-minute flights to Europe this Christmas, but it’s you’re short for time, or cash, checkout the Christmas Markets dotted across London… You can’t miss the one on South Bank!
Share your favourite Christmas markets in the comments! Thanks 🙂
Czech out our trip…
