The lazy girl's guide to keeping fit when traveling

•••
I'm not going to lie, when thinking about top tips for keeping fit when traveling, I caught myself thinking: 'Would I actually freaking do this?'

How to Spend a Month in South India

•••
Following on from my How to Spend a Month in Northern India, I wanted to do a similar post celebrating the South of the country. North and South India are tremendously different in so many ways, from the landscapes to the climate, the people and the food. If you've only ever travelled to North India before, you might be in for a shock when you head to the So[...]
