40 Nelson Road
New Malden

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!

The One Where I Went To Soho Farmhouse

Rachel Carr

This week, I was lucky enough to go to Soho Farmhouse with one of my oldest friends Miss. T. Luckier still, we were blessed with sunny weather and warm temperatures that made this country outpost of the Soho House chain even more idyllic than it already is. Set within rolling hills near Chipping Norton, on the outskirts of the village of Great Tew, Soho Farmhouse is about an hour and a half from London and a completely decadent slice of heaven.

Monochrome Mania

Rachel Carr

For this week’s blog, I thought I would go back to basics and focus on one of my favourite art mediums: black and white photography. I have taken this opportunity to turn some of my most popular past images into a new composition by stripping out the colour and focussing, instead, on tones and linear qualities of my images. I have included a braod range of genres – street, landscape, and of course my beloved flowers.

A Beery Weekend In Berlin

Rachel Carr

So I have a confession to make. I have been to Berlin twice in my life now, both for very different reasons, and I still feel like I don't know very much about the city. That's not to say I don't like it. Quite the opposite. I think, perhaps, my downfall has been that I have liked it a little too much.
