In February of 2005 I went to Zimbabwe not knowing that this trip would change me forever. This was my first time away from Family, Friends, New Zealand and everything I knew. I borrowed a friends old school film camera with manual settings and one lens’. I learnt how to take photos on this trip and my passion said hello. This is when I realised I will always have a camera with me.
This trip was the start of a very beautiful thing….My introduction to wanderlust and it’s forever lurking feeling inside my heart to see new things and explore.
7 years on I am still chasing that feeling and came across this quote tonight which my Grandfather had written on the back of a photograph for me years ago. Seems to fit in perfectly with my forgotten photos.
“The world is your oyster Nadia, go and explore it”
