feeling a tad stifled about being stationed in bombay for months now, i'm itching for some travel and adventure!
sadly, thanks to work commitments and budget constraints, i was forced to get creative and improvise, even if it is like a weak nicotine patch to an otherwise vociferous cigarette craving.
my quick fix is to pretend. i grabbed hold of a girlfriend and set out with the sole intention of being whoever i wanted to be. we went on a walking tour of ballard estate in stilettos, feeling like the effortlessly chic milanese women who walk around with little dogs. next, we attended a photo exhibition, chanelling the local parisians who frequent little art galleries in the alleyways of st. germain.
we ended our fantasy excursion at a quaint little bakery, equivalent of a bäckerei in munich where we sampled sugary treats and left with apply pie takeaways - the sweetest reminders of our little trip round the world.
