travel diary – andaman & nicobar islands πŸŒŠ

Hi.

It’s been a while since I did one of these, but in late September, my family and I flew south of India to the picturesque Port Blair, the capital of Andaman & Nicobar Islands.

travel diary – hiking through the himalayas || trekking sandakhphu || life & literature ep. 7

Hi, there.

It’s definitely been a minute.

In August, life spiralled into a tornado of exams, competitions, performances and worse: deadlines. Since then, I’ve deserted this space, but don’t worry – I’ve got no intention of leaving.

Even simply being in the airport was such a novel feeling – the lines, the security checks. Today’s post is a travel diary and chronicles the entirety of my trip – so enjoy!
