My name is Rachel Carr and I started This Is Carrt in 2014 when my husband's job moved to Germany and I decided to give up my day job in the city and go with him on the adventure! I had always loved to travel and write, and was also passionate about photography so one day I sat down and mingled all three of them on this website and my Etsy page. I write about a wide range of things like how to cope with airline hand luggage allowances to what to wear to any destination wedding. However, when I write up a holiday destination, there are more often than not a few common themes linking what are otherwise very different places:

1) Food. I love to eat. It structures my day to day life as well as any trip that I go on. I think food is a great way to start to experience a new culture as well as meeting new people.

2) Value. I don't get swayed by places to be seen and clothing to be seen in for the sake of it. I hate being ripped off. Be that by a fiver or by hundreds of pounds. If an activity or an excursion I go on is expensive but an amazing experience, I will still highly recommend it, but won't recommend it simply because it is deemed luxury.

3) Beauty. I love looking at pretty things. They don't have to have a purpose!

Tis The Season For Leaf Kicking

Rachel Carr

Firstly, I must apologise for the radio silence over the last couple of weeks. I have been really busy with lots of different projects, which have monopolised my time. I also returned to my home in London for a few days, where I spent many a happy hour researching new restaurant openings, returning to old haunts, catching up with friends and making use of the low, cool autumn light to take snaps of a very picturesque capital city and the home county of Surrey.

My limited edition prints, this week, started as an idea whilst walking through the beautiful gardens of RHS Wisley. The autumnal colours were out in full force and mother nature was at her best. I was out with my own mother and, by my not being able to walk more than three steps without taking a photo, I pushed her patience to limits that I have not done since I was a demanding toddler. Once back at my family home, I continued to make use of the good weather London was enjoying and, again, couldn’t stop snapping pictures in my mother’s garden, which, though obviously smaller than Wisley, is just as beautiful in my eyes!

Now back in Germany, my luck with good weather, and as a consequence wonderful autumnal light, continues. The woods behind my house, where I walk my dog daily, are now absolutely stunning. Autumn is, sadly, such a short season and yet one of the most beautiful. The trees have literally turned every colour of the rainbow, bar blue and purple. I hope you enjoy viewing these images and look forward, as always, to hearing from you with your requests for purchasing and your own shots of similarly beautiful views.

Happy leaf kicking all,

Rachel x
