A long time passed since I made a post on the blog. Unfortunately these last couple of months have been a bit stressful with a number of unfortunate events occurring in sequence, including the theft of 90% of my camera equipment during our trip to Kuala Lumpur. Yes, I’ve been robbed again, but fortunately (so to say) this time I didn’t lose any of my pictures and I still have my laptop and my data is safe. Because I couldn’t afford to stay without a camera for a long time, I made a quick decision and taking advantage of an offer, I bought myself a Fujifilm XE-2, which proved a great purchase (but I’ll write more about it in the next posts) although I still miss my big Canon from time to time.
Anyway, the negative spell seems to be fading out (although, please send me your positive energy 🙂 ) and I’m so excited to announce that Kerala Tourism recently picked me along with other 24 travel bloggers, writers and photographers, to be part of Kerala Blog Express. Starting March 10th, we will be travelling the Indian state of Kerala from South to North, take loads of photos and write about our experience.
Fellow KBE blogger Gaia from Brasil, already compiled a complete list of participants, so if you’re curious be sure to check her post here (the post is in Portuguese but it won’t be hard to spot the list)
The group Kerala Tourism put together is very diverse and includes people from the Philippines, Indonesia, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Brasil, Germany, Holland, Spain, USA, Denmark, Italy (that’s me!) and, of course, India.
I already visited Kerala in 2010 but this time Romana is not coming with me – she’ll fly to Portugal with little Diego and I’ll re-unite with them at the end of KBE.
Stay tuned for more updates – in the meanwhile, check our old posts about Kerala here:
