This week’s travel snap is of a Kathakali dancer in Kochi (formerly Cochin) Kerala. We were lucky enough to catch a performance of this classical indian dance/drama in our hotel on our last night in India after the most amazing few weeks exploring Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

Before the drama itself the dancers put on their make-up in front of the audience. This fascinating display is actually a traditional part of the performance and the bright colours and patterns of the make-up and costumes were a joy to photograph.

Travel Planning Resources


Travel clothes for women

Check out my guide to all my favourite travel clothes for women.

Book your hotel

Agoda is my preferred hotel search engine. I also use Airbnb ($31 discount) for booking rooms/apartments.

Rent a car

Discover Car Hire is a great site for comparing car prices to find the best deal. They search both local and international rental companies.

Book an experience

When I’m travelling solo, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions, in particular, food walking tours or to visit somewhere tricky to get to by public transport.

Protect yourself and your trip

Don’t forget travel insurance! Protect yourself from possible injury, theft, and many other unexpected mishaps while abroad. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 140 countries.
