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!

An odd thing happened yesterday whilst I was working from home,  the sun came out for the first time since before Christmas. I had forgotten what it looked and felt like! Bearing that in mind, I fished out my trusty, and at that point dusty, Canon DSLR, put the lead on my dog and set off for a walk into the farmland behind my house. The results are shown in my latest album, which I hope you enjoy. I know I enjoyed taking them. The light made it glorious to take a few snaps and it truly transformed a place that I go walking at least twice a day with my mongrel. We had had a smattering of snow over the previous two weeks, making the surrounding fields and woodland extremely picturesque – albeit a little nippy!

In particular, I loved photographing the view of the path lined by trees on the horizon - it is my favourite sight that I have found since moving to Paderborn, Germany almost a year ago now. It is the view that keeps me going if I ever put on my trainers and try running. Once I have reached that view on a run, I forget that I can’t feel my legs, that I hate perspiring and feeling out of breath, and appreciate the beauty of what I am looking at!

All these photos are available as limited edition framed/unframed prints or on canvases for our usual prices.
