KATE'S BLOG

Hey guys, I've started a travel blog!

Ok, for those of you who don't know me very well I am a passionate traveller! Recently, whenever I tell one of my anecdotes to a friend or even a stranger, their most common reaction has been 'wow, you should write a book!' ... now as flattering and inspiring as that is, I don't really want to write a whole book. I've got a lot going on and I don't have the time for it ... but I can write out a few blog posts every now and again to whet yer whistles and get you in the mood for a bit of travel nonsense yourselves! So that's what I've gone and done! I have redesigned my Yogidraws website (www.yogidraws.com) into a travel blog where I am writing out my stories as they occur to me. This means th

My incredible friend!

This is Liz. Liz is an awesome musician and a fantastic person. She has been my friend since I first came to Austria and she has provided me with some of the best support, love and positive energy that I have ever had the pleasure of receiving! Liz has been through some quite dramatic things and only 2 years ago nearly lost her life to a blood clot in her lung. Far from being depressed or scared though, what did Liz do? She picked up her flute for the first time in 21 years and started to follow her dream of being a professional musician in Vienna. Now Liz was already a professional flutist in Brasil, where she was born, but started teaching English and forgot all about her musical roots for

An exhibition of beauty; Wednesday at 5pm

Oh my beautiful friends! If you have time on Wednesday 15th March at 5pm, please head on down to Landstraße in the third district and come and visit me! I will be exhibiting a selection of my paintings from last year and also a couple of my newer yoga portrait works. Go to the Mondi Building at the back of Wien Mitte and head on up to the 17th floor :-D With me is a group of very talented folks who are all exploring the theme 'Finding Beauty' so you can expect some awesome interpretations of that there. Most works are for sale and I'll be there the whole evening so if you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you. If you would like to come, please let me know because I ha

Heat, ice cream and Nirvana: 3 things I found in the Negev desert

As well as being the second part of my Israel travel story ... this is also the final draft of my competition entry. I just need to tighten it up and then I'll submit it! Wish me luck :-) Here are a couple of pictures from that same trip from 1998! 19 years ago. I feel so young ... **sad face** As bead of sweat trickled between my butt cheeks, I began to get the impression that I was hilariously overdressed. The heat was insufferable. It swaggered around yelling that, yes, it was going to suffocate us, and if we didn't like it we could just get back on the bus, like little pansies … and really, who wears jeans and a sheepskin waistcoat to the desert anyway? The flight from London to Tel Aviv

My first travel competition ... second draft

Update March 3rd, 2017 Ok, here is draft number 2 ... any better? As a bead of sweat trickled between my butt cheeks, I started to get the impression that I was wildly, hilariously overdressed. I mean, who wears jeans and a sheepskin waistcoat to the desert? The heat seemed to swagger around, yelling at those of us who lingered in it that, yes, it was that hot, and if we didn't like it we could just get back on the bus … like little bitches. The London to Tel Aviv flight had already been a grand adventure of delays, strip searches and hotel rooms. So as a naive nineteen year old, first time traveler, now on my way south, I added to my ever growing list of things to learn. No 324: when travel

My first travel competition ...

Ok, so I love writing and I love traveling ... I have to admit that traveling is my first love ... I started to travel at 18 and have never really looked back. I live for those moments on the road and only really feel free when I have nothing to do and nowhere to go. In light of this, I am in the process of applying for a scholarship with World Nomads. World Nomads are a part of the Rough Guide group and for as long as I can remember, I have wanted to write for the Rough Guide. Not so long ago, at the height of my depressive moment, I looked up into the sky and begged the universe for a chance to get paid to travel ... a couple of weeks later and this opportunity landed in my Facebook feed .
