I feel so lucky that this little pup @lolathewelshie came into my life at the perfect time. Honestly having a puppy is almost like having a baby. Lola needs so much attention and wakes us up at 3am but we love her! Being at home all the time has helped so much but we need to start training her to be ok with being on her own now. Let me know if you have any tips!

Did you know that in Swedish they now have a word for "flight shaming" (flygskam) and another for "train bragging" (tagskryt)? I think it's brilliant 😄

2020 will be the year of train travel for me! I have friends and family dotted around the world so sometimes air travel is unavoidable, but this year I'm really making an effort to keep flights to a minimum. I have four weddings abroad to get to, but I'm only going to fly to the two in Ireland. Luckily @eurostar is so easy for those of us who live in London, and I'll be using it to get to weddings in Germany and the South of France! I've done the maths for Germany and although getting trains will be a bit more expensive it doesn't actually take any longer when you factor in airport wait times, passport control and travel to and from the airport.

If you're a frequent traveller, cutting down on the number of flights you take could be the best thing you can do to reduce your carbon footprint. Visit ecopassenger.org to get an idea of how rail travel compares to flying for your particular destination. Swipe right to see what this looks like for Nuremberg to London one way.

Had my first roll of black and white film developed this week and I love how it turned out! Some of the photos don't look quite right but I was expecting the worst so that's okay. I'm excited to shoot some more with my dad's beautiful Canon A-1 from the eighties!

This might seem silly but after feeling guilty about buying lunches in disposable take away boxes last year, today I finally built up the courage to take some tupperware to the salad bar near my office and it felt *good*! I got some weird looks and they asked if I have allergies but I said I'm trying to reduce my plastic consumption and I'm so glad I did it. Hopefully this may encourage them to look into plastic free packaging. I also hope that by posting this at least one of you might feel inspired to pack a reusable box or say no to plastic cutlery this January too.

Here's to making many more sustainable choices this year!

P.S. if you're using new "eco" alternatives to plastic like single use #Vegware boxes you should be aware that they can't be recycled and have to be disposed of through specific industrial composting processes to degrade properly. Most of the time they are likely to just sit in landfill, so bringing a #reusable container is always better!

Merry Christmas/happy holidays to all! I'm enjoying spending time with family in Brussels, getting plenty of sleep and eating lots of chocolate. Best time of year to rest and recharge ✨ !

Merry Christmas/happy holidays to all!...

First day back at work after two weeks away is always a struggle but I'm happy to get back into a healthier routine after far too much dim sum and ramen! 😋 I've added Hong Kong and Tokyo to my Stories highlights for those who missed my updates!

We found this pretty street in Shibuya, Tokyo, near the famous and very hectic Scramble/crossing. So nice to see some more traditional streets hidden amongst the super modern tower blocks and huge neon lights.
