Monthly Instagram Update – May 2015

Monthly Instagram Update – May 2015

I’ve been having a particularly rough time dealing with the Delhi summer this year!
The city feels like a furnace, and more than 5 seconds spent outdoors feels like my skin might be set ablaze any moment!

Needless to say, I’ve been hiding indoors and avoiding stepping outside of home / office as much as possible. June is turning out to be quite an uneventful month.

But before that, here’s a quick look back at the past month, flashed back through Instagram.

What I Ate in Singapore – A Photo Essay

What I Ate in Singapore – A Photo Essay

I’m on a quest to Take12Trips this year, and it’s going VERY well so far. 🙂

In January I visited Mumbai and in February I took another quick trip to Mussoorie; I explored the Delhi Zoo in March and had a fantastic time traipsing around Europe in April. In May I went off to Shimla up in the hills to escape Delhi’s unbearable heat and in June a work trip took me to Manila, Philippines. I then flew to New York City to spend 10 glorious summer days in July and August meandering around Manhattan and falling in love with Brooklyn. September had yet another trip in store!

But like they say, everything happens for the best, because Brooklyn turned out to be pretty great!

Meandering around Manhattan with Walks of New York

I truly believe that the best way to experience a city, to really soak it up; is on foot. An aimless amble down an alleyway, or a saunter down a street; there’s nothing quite like the thrill of discovery in a new place.
