A few favourite images from shooting with my cousin Nik of chappalschappals. Working together, we created a collection of images for her newly launched website for her leather sandals or "chappals" imported from India. As a an avid traveller, Nik is constantly mapping out her next destination. Always on her feet, always seeking adventure, but never compromising style, these chappals have been her best friend when exploring new territory. Check out the goods at chappalschappals.com
Not to shabby of a timeline to get my India photos up here to share! Well done, Stephanie, well done.

quick stroll around the neighbourhood
we accidentally take a 5 hour nap and wake up to darkness, just in time to find dinner
headed south to Agonda Beach for a day trip
the drive was 1.5 hours and i was having a hard time breathing in all the pollution
Drove my first scooter about 30 minutes further south to take a peek at the recommended Palolem Beach
much busier and less quiet, happy that we booked our place in Agonda for the night
Our sweet little hut for the night at Agonda White Sand

after a day of sight-seeing and a lot of driving, we arrive in North Goa

the beautiful bride and groom
fireworks and lantern releasing
i decided to not bring my camera along on what ended up being my favourite day in Goa
perhaps the universe meant for me to savour it instead of attempt to capture it
