Ranthambore National Park safari adventure!

My client Martin and I continue the wheelchair world trip to India! 

Incredible experience checking out this beautiful National Park in an open top Jeep! I haven’t even been four wheel driving back in Aus so this was an amazing first for me. It was also the steepest rockiest road I have ever been on. 

We had an amazing guide whose passion for nature was a total joy to witness. I could see his face lighting up while he was sharing his knowledge of everything from plants, birds to animals. Towards the end of the journey we got totally soaked by a sudden downpour of rain. But this didn’t dampen our spirits. Well apart from my pants. I got my only pants totally soaked. I might have packed a bit light for this leg of the journey. So glad it was nice weather afterwards and I was able to just let things dry out. 

The next morning while looking in the mirror I noticed one of my eyes was a bit red. It’s a good idea to look where you’re going whilst standing up in a Jeep. I got a bit distracted by my surroundings at one stage and got whipped in the eye by a branch. But totally worth it.

I’m not sure how I landed such a sweet job that is allowing me to travel all over the world. You never know what life will throw your way. 
Here is a picture from of the chilling polar bear at Singapore zoo. One of the best zoos in the world. It has a unique design which sometimes gives the impression that you are caged and the animals are roaming free. Some encloses only have a small river separating you from the animals.

Singapore
My world trip begins on the 9th floor in Singapore. I haven’t slept in almost 24hrs. Happened to arrive on the the moon cake festival which coincidentally had world themed lanterns foreshadowing places I’ll be visiting over the next two months. Here are the solar powered sky trees at Gardens By the Bay in the technicolour tropical jungle.

Impromptu dinner photo shoot! Did I mention that I have the most amazing housemate who sporadically makes me cocktails mid week hugs me when I cry and cooks the best burgers! I’m such a lucky girl. 
Home made brioche buns! Or bro-she buns as I had mistakenly been calling them. Ha ha …I suspect this mispronunciation contributed to why I no longer work at a certain cafe. We decided that my version of the name was better anyway. More bro! Beautiful hot buns too picture perfect not to photograph. Oh and honorable housemate made this cheese! Amazing just don’t ask me how.  Thank you Daniel for this meal and all the lovely meals!

I’m currently rereading Alice in Wonderland. I was inspired by the beautiful original drawings by Sir John Tenniel. Such intricate detail and character. That line work! I’m in love with his lines!

Above left is my drawing which is a study of Sir John Tenniel’s work on the right. 

I feel like copying is an important part of studying drawing. Just from copying I can get insight into other Artist’s techniques while building on my own.  

I made this strawberry pom pom necklace on the weekend!
I gave it to a beautiful fashion monster I just met as a housewarming gift. 
I was inspired by a punk fruit image a friend sent me. I thought this was kinda the opposite of punk fruit… fluffy fruit. I used a tutorial I found online a while ago and just extended the loop to make a necklace. Check out the tutorial below you can make a whole bowl of fruits!

As the night progressed I imagined that the strawberry had taken on a life of it’s own. I rode my bike to the party with the pom pom around my neck. While riding the strawberry pounded against my chest and I felt as if I had a strawberry for a heartbeat. Later it looked like the strawberry was having the best time dancing along with fashion monster as we got down on the dance floor. I’m sure the pom pom had more adventures once I left. I wonder what strawberry will get up to next?

While hanging out the washing today I found myself staring at the ever growing forest in my backyard. In the twilight this afternoon everything looked glowing and one panda was hungry. ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ

p.s My backyard is a full stinging nettle forest. My hands and butt stung for a while but I think it was worth it. Either way panda was hungry and had to eat. 

I got a new lens for my camera!  I broke my previous lens going to too many music festivals over the summer. Somewhere in the middle of Woodford the autofocus stopped working and my camera stopped taking images because it could no longer focus. So all photos ended there for a while. Until now! I wanted to test it out on my dinner. So here is my dinner from last night aka “Dinner by Daniel”. Food by my talented housemate with mad kitchen skills.
