Earlier this year I had become frustrated about where my life was.
At the age of 34, I felt my life was a long way from where I imagined it would be. my career wasn't close to where I wanted it. My personal life wasn't where I wanted it.
I felt like things just weren't happening for me or going my way. But because I felt down and felt frustrated, I wasn't putting in the effort I should have been to achieve these things. It was a vicious cycle.
So I knew I needed to make a change and do something to get myself out of this rut and as a lover of travel, I needed an adventure.
So I decided to rent out my flat and use the income from that rent to go off and do some travelling in India.
Above anything else India gave me perspective and made me realise how lucky I am for everything I have in my life and the opportunities I have. It helped me with my confidence and caring less about filming in public of taking photos of strangers.
India was the perfect place for me to go. It challenged me, caused me to grow, made me grateful for everything I have in my life. I grew in confidence, I got more comfortable photographing people.
From seeing wild tigers in the jungle, the Taj Mahal in the early morning light, sailing down the Ganges river at sunrise, or just exploring the hectic streets of Mumbai with my camera, I had amazing experiences, saw some incredible things and it certainly gave me the adventure I was looking for.
It wasn't always easy, there were some stressful and difficult moments, but I wasn't seeking a vacation, I was seeking an adventure and India certainly gave me that.
So although I may have found it difficult at time, it was exactly what I needed and it I was to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a single thing.
