Cidade


Ten years ago, was my first visit to Goa, and India as a whole. I was really sick for the three weeks I was there so I don't really remember too much. But the one thing I remember clearly about Goa was the three days my family and I spent at Cidade de Goa - this magical beachfront hotel where my sister and I built sandcastles and surprises everyone with our swimming skills. So of course we had to spend an afternoon here! Love B xx

Panjim

 

Somewhere wandering along the streets of Panjim, the city center of Goa did I realise what an amazing place Goa truly was and that at each and every corner and hook something new was awaiting me. I've been told by numerous people who try guessing my background that I'm Brazilian, European or Indian and for some people, Indian isn't even on their radar! But it certainly felt, I do admit, a little weird walking along the streets of Goa in my flouncy florally, brightly coloured dresses and heels with socks and bows and flowers in my hair. But, somehow I still felt like I belonged to this magical paradise.

"Campal, Panjim is home to Kala Academy. Art and culture, dance and music, the forms of expression which shape the soul of the people, Kala Academy, Goa stands as a testimony to the richness and diversity of the Goan cultural ethos, reflecting the religious sentiments and beliefs of the land." Besides the technical background of the place, it is actually so beautiful and different to the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA).

When my sister and I first got to Goa we didn't know how to pronounce anything let alone understand a word of Konkani, the local language or Hindi, the national language. Imagine us saying Can-do-limb for Candolim, and Mar-go for Margao but of course our way of saying things became one big joke to our friends/family and the names stuck. Hope you enjoy my Pan-a-gee photo diary and I look forward to sharing Cidade De Goa, with you dolls next! Love B xx

Sydney Diary



With a pretty pastel sunrise welcoming us on our descent into Sydney, pretty droplets of rain, blue skies, freezing winds, muddy puddles and having a smile on my face days on end - wandering the streets of Sydney, and stopping off for coffee, lunch dates, meetings, drinks, and running through the shops trying to make the most of our limited time pretty much sums up my 6 days in Sydney.

I have included quite a few pictures of my cousin's 20th champagne and brunch party as this was the main reason for flying all the way across Australia and oh my gosh those macaroons were definitely worth it!

I was privileged enough to spend a few hours at a specialist school for kids with autism and be apart of the music therapy sessions. This was one of my most inspiring moments of the year so far and what I have been looking for in my path to deciding if I really want to study Music Therapy next year. I will definitely be booking my ticket back to Sydney to be a volunteer for a week hopefully in July. Fingers crossed! B xx
