A Scenic Walk through Richmond | #AditisPen

Walking in London, gives me the greatest joy - each street, each lane way, each park, has a hidden secret that you’ll only find on foot. And I love exploring London neighborhoods this way. Wear my comfy shoes, get my camera out, hop on the tube to discover the charms of a new place.

A few days back, I visited Richmond, an endearing village, way at the end of the District Line in southwest London. And though my first time there, I fell in love with all its beauty. The grassy river bank with wine glasses clinking at a distance, buskers playing their favorite tunes hypnotizing Londoners under the glistening sun, dogs taking a swim, keen kayakers cruising across the River Thames, children running around leafy bushes and climbing atop trees having their mini summer adventure, the busy high street with unique coffee shops and shopping delights, and up the Richmond Park adorable dogs chasing squirrels, and if you are lucky, spotting a deer or two roaming freely in the wild.

I felt like capturing every moment; here are few scenes from my day out in Richmond. Hope you enjoy the video!

The Hills, Valleys and Happiness Abound | #AditisPen

Last month we took a road trip through Yorkshire. What a memorable trip it was; my happiness knew no bounds surrounded by the greens of the hills and valleys, the tender silence of nature, the bundles of cotton swaying gently into the blues of summer skies and the laughter and madness that comes with travelling with the people you love!

Here's a little travel journal film that I made, hope you enjoy it!

We traveled without a plan, looking up where to go just minutes before sitting in the car and driving into the wild. There are an abundance of places to see in South Yorkshire and great trekking paths. Here's what we touched over the long weekend.

A Literary Taste of Jaipur in London - British Library (8-10 June)

One of my favourite things about living in London is that it is a cultural centre where great worlds collide and come together leaving us richer with expression, creativity, experience and opinions.

And this weekend, I am all set to attend ‘The greatest literary show on Earth’.

2018 marks the fifth anniversary of ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival’s presence in London, and the producers, Teamwork Arts along with co-directors Namita Gokhale and William Dalrymple have curated a bespoke programme for UK audiences, to be held on this weekend, June 8-10.
