chaiwalla Friday night. Are you going to hit up any bars? This chap is certainly thinking about it.

On another note yesterday I received my first negative, and rather catty, comment in a very long time. Rather than be affected by this it actually made me realise how great the community within Instagram is and I feel extremely grateful to be followed by such a ruddy nice bunch of people. So cheers to you all and have a really great weekend. X

chaiwalla Four very tired nonne. It's been a long long long day.

Ok these Puglian towns just get better and better. Ostuni has taken my breath away.

chaiwalla Behind the scenes.

Earlier this year I had a fantastic opportunity to work with @mercedesbenzuk to create and direct a scene for an "Instagram movie" featuring actor James Corden. Then it was left to budding film makers and creatives to submit their own scenes. Well the competition is now over and all the additional scenes have been chosen. Now we just have to vote for a winner! This person will then get to direct their own movie featuring James. If you'd like to watch the entrants videos and vote all you need to do is go to http://www.clastory.co.uk/ and select your favourite video! Thanks for your help.

chaiwalla From yesterday's snorkelling around Tremiti Islands. Wow the sea was just the nicest colour ever, I've literally done no editing to this picture. It really was this colour!

I feel somewhat blessed this week. Thank you @viaggiarepuglia.

Also thank you to everyone for your comments. I sadly have limited time to reply at the moment. #mypugliaexperience

chaiwalla A magnificent view over Bovino.
I've just got 3G again after spending last night and this morning on a countryside farm. I may be sharing #latergrams for weeks to come. I hope that's alright with you! #mypugliaexperience

chaiwalla And here it the first picture I took when I arrived in Italy. Initially I was drawn to the doors and the pink walls and luckily a "nonni" walked by just as I went to take the shot #mypugliaexperience 3d

chaiwalla Good morning! Aside from the vintage cars and tiny alleys I think the thing that adds the most character to this town is the abundance of grandmas and grandads or "nonnis" as the Italians call them. They're all so darn cute and I imagined they all had great stories to tell. In Bovino I really got to practice my street photography a lot here. This style of photography being what I am challenging myself with this year. (So that's why you may of noticed more stealthy streets shots than normal appearing within my feed recently)

I will of course be tagging this shot #notmynonni and hoping that @tianapix features the pic along side the other great granny and grandpa shots on @notmynonni do check out the account if you haven't yet.

chaiwalla Bovino. Home of the Piaggio Ape and incredible door portraits. I seriously think I've just discovered my new favourite European town, sorry Cadaques! It's so beautiful here. It's also the perfect place to take a shots featuring a new favourite hashtag of mine #neighbourhoodnumbers.

chaiwalla I arrived in Bari last night with plenty of time to explore the quiet and quaint and quite incredible streets of the old town with @kimou53. I am here for a week of Puglian discovery and adventure for #MyPugliaExperience. I must say I'm rather excited!

chaiwalla The 7N to Skansen.
Stockholms tram network first began in 1877 and the trams were drawn by horses. Sadly this method doesn't exist anymore but I was still thrilled to come across this vintage tram yesterday - the route that it sits on was reopened in the early 90s as a "vintage and heritage" line. Apparently there is one particular tram where you can sit and have dinner as it loops it's circuit... but this ends at midsommer so I've missed my chance to experience this!

chaiwalla The underground stations of the Stockholm #tunnelbana are quite something! This particular one made you feel as though you had been transported onto another planet and into the future. @zachspassport @sralala and I managed to get to two or three stations yesterday but I most certainly will be exploring more of them over the coming weeks. 1w

chaiwalla Security.

So a German friend of mine told me that security are on hand at the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe as n°1 people jump from block to block and have got hurt and n°2 the concrete is starting to crumble and the architects lawyers are not happy etc. I guess you could argue it's a matter of respect but also you could say that the memorial is there to be interacted with. It's also worth noting that there are no clears signs to tell you not to stand on the blocks... #everchangingberlin

chaiwalla @danrubin @lyricyst
Two of my favourite people @ the top of the Gherkin, London. Shot taken a few weeks ago at a surprise leaving do thrown for myself by @oggsie. The location is insanely impressive with 360° views of London. It was the ideal place to watch the sun go down and with it being my last night in the city it felt like the perfect place to wave goodbye.

Ironically when I first met @lyricyst in London a year ago it was at the bottom of the Gherkin! Zach was one of the very first people I followed on Instagram and I had the pleasure of getting to know him better during our week in Spain for the @catalunyaexperience. The trip wouldn't of been the same without his personable and positive attitude, he really made the effort to spark conversation and get to know us all better.

@danrubin has been one of the biggest influences of my photography ever - and he is a bloody nice chap too. I can't say enough good things about him but I can say I miss being in London and having him around. #rantover
