Ladakhi home essentials: 🏡
There's no tables, chairs, or beds in Ladakhi homes. Instead, there are Tibetan low tables, with intricate colourful #thangka paintings of dragons and Buddhist symbols on them, and mattresses with intricately often hand-woven carpets with more dragons and Buddhist symbols on them... Long glass & wooden windows, but extremely low doorframes, wood roofs, lots of butter tea, more colourful thangka mugs, kettles, crockery; black tea, kahwa tea, milk tea, LOTS OF TEA!; ☕ lots of big big flasks elaborately designed and sometimes with amusingly-photoshopped images on them; photoshopped-together family photos; a panoramic landscape poster of Lhasa, the capital of Tibet; lots of silence, a beautiful view from the windows, and one big warm kind Ladakhi family.
As I recollect all these beautiful items that made up the homestays we lived in, I realise that though I noticed these details enough for them to be etched in my memory, I didn't always think about taking pictures of them. I wish I did... ✨
I miss opening my eyes first thing in to the morning to the sight of the mountains. 💕
I know any one who knows me will know how much I love Tibet. At a Tibetan charity event tonight. Loving the momos and free transferable tattoos . I count myself very lucky to have the freedom I do. I hope one day you will have that freedom too Tibet 💕#freetibet#tibet#dalilama#momo#humanrights

[wind kissed] This legging from @jorikiyoga gave me ALL OF THE FEELS and I've got a guest blogpost up on their website (link in profile) all about why. If you want some good feels too, Joriki is kindly offering WWS followers 15% off their purchase if you use the code LOVEWWS when you checkout.
I only buy what fits in my backpack, and it's rare that I feel the need to buy new clothing. But I couldn't resist when I saw these leggings because:
1) They remind me of one of my favorite places in the world -- Dharamkot, India
2) A portion of all sales go back to helping impoverished communities from around the world with proceeds from these specific leggings going to victims of the 2015 Nepal earthquake

Hi all I donated a piece to this event and would encourage anyone in the New York area to attend and donate if possible.
Art for Tibet is an art auction event designed to benefit the students for a free Tibet. Please join them on September 6 at Tibet House in New York City. This event is open to the public, with a suggested donation of $10.
The art on display will also be available for sale online through the Art for Tibet online auction which will be live from August 27 - September 13, so you too, can join the celebration of art, culture and resistance.
Auction and event information and a full list of participating artists are available at www.artfortibet.com
Again, all proceeds from the event will benefit Students for a Free Tibet (SFT), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with international headquarters in New York. Through education, grassroots organizing, and non-violent direct action, SFT campaigns for the Tibetan people’s fundamental right to freedom and independence:www.studentsforafreetibet.org.
It is only now that I start to realize how lucky I was to meet all these young people from all over the world who are skilled, engaged and passionate. Although there are physical borders dividing us, we are yet connected by the very same vision, a vision that will become reality.

Action camp was an eye opening experience for me and all the people that I met and the stories that I heard left me feeling proud to be a Tibetan. Here's to dedicating this next year to the Tibetan Freedom Movement #BhodGyalo#FreeTibet
I wish one day Tibet will be free. The Tibetans are the most gentle peoples I have meet in Asia, they dont deserved this Chinese traitement...
I would love cross Tibet by motorcycle, one day... An Tibetan farmer with his two daughters, the skin burn by the sun, 4200m, Himalaya, Tibet #freetibet#asia#natgeo#backpacking#iphone
There is a place on Earth where tibetan monks can live in harmony since they had to fled their country because of Chinese occuppation. There is a place on Earth where different cultures and religions live altogether. There is a place on Earth that doesn't have anything and has everything at the same time, which catches you instantly and you won't ever forget. This place is McLeodGanj. My mind is playing "Skinny Love" by Bon Iver. #IndiaTrip2017#india#dharmshala#mcleudganj#travelling#freetibet
