I’ve been terrible at blogging lately- luckily it’s because I’ve been working on a lot of new and exciting things!
I started another blog during a five month stint in Asia last Winter – http://www.travellisttheworld.wordpress.com . Backpacking is a unique situation- sharing dorm rooms with strangers, exploring together and building memories in an environment free of responsibility and stress lends itself to creating intense bonds with people of all lifestyles. I asked each of my subjects to write me a list of their choice. Because of the freedom given to us by our environment, my subjects felt able to share with me lists that might not ordinarily be shared between strangers.
Ten Reasons for Life Without Heroin

5. I can socialise without having to be high
6. More free time
8. I don’t live in fear
9. I’m able to help others
Ten Reasons I Don’t Want to Go Home
Adam’s Peak, Sri Lanka
1. I love travelling
2. The cultural side
3. I have hardly any friends living at home anymore
5. How expensive it is
8. Dirty drugs
10. So far away from my friends in St Ives
I’m hoping to keep the project going and publish it in book or magazine format, so please check back for updates.
