Yesterday was the amazing book party for #theonewhoswamwiththefishes. We had a live theatre performance and then K and I were in conversation at Ek Bar. Such a fun night, thanks @harpercollinsin! I hope my little book will now travel the world. #bookstagram #authorsofinstagram #girlsofthemahabharata

Guess who has Delhi Belly after only one month away? Boo hiss I feel like such a failure re: Delhi stomach of steel roots. Oh well, at least I have the prospect of my book launch to cheer me up! If you're in #delhi on Thursday the 17th do come to Ek Bar for a dramatised reading plus a lovely hang with me! Share with your friends! #bookstagram #theonewhoswamwiththefishes #booklaunch #authorsofinstagram

Morning Delhi, I was rudely awakened our of what would have been a jet lagged sleep till noon by the doorbell so now I'm drinking my coffee and admiring my garden again. That's the bitter gourd growing up the vine, next to it is corn and aubergine and some other kind of squash. Having never had much luck with gardens or had enough space to hire a gardener, I'm just dumbstruck. Just "harvested" some beans and some bitter gourd with a bottle gourd ready for me whenever I need it. Have you ever picked food right out of your garden? Even if it's just a karipatta plant, it's such a great feeling! #delhidiary #terracegarden #eatwhatyougrow #urbanjungle

Bye #berlin and lest we forget, here's one of the many memorial stones to Jewish people who died in concentration camps which are set in the sidewalks across the homes they once inhabited. It's a far kinder city now but that's probably because they're always in touch with their past. A lesson that other countries would do well to adopt. #traveldiary #abroadabroad #minnamoon #germany

Berlin! Thanks to a fuck up by the French cycle company Velib, I am now out of cash COMPLETELY. (They take a 150 euro "deposit" from your card to ride the bike and I swiped for me and K, it's supposed to be refunded instantly. Instead it's been a week and a bit and I'm 300 euros poorer with no sign of a refund.) luckily, we have K's parents flat here and we just bought a bunch of groceries so the end of our Euro trip will be as homebodies. Drunk on two euro rosé, Germany's finest and now lying about in bed satiated. This is an European experience too, right? #traveldiary #minnamoon #abroadabroad #berlin

Off we go again! There were no cheap options from Luxembourg and our Blah Blah car cancelled at the last minute, so here we are on a Oui Bus on an eight hour long bus trip to #amsterdam. I have WiFi though and a book but since I get nauseated if I read too long, I'm going to have to spend most of my time gazing out of the window. Not even one hour down, but there's always napping for entertainment. But Amsterdam at the end of this should make it worth it, right? Reading the inimitable Karin Slaughter who does crime with the lightest touch. #traveldiary #abroadabroad #minnamoon #nowreading #150in2017 #bookstagram

On the super fast TGV to Luxembourg, here's my train reading. I picked this collection up yesterday, which includes my newly beloved Elizabeth Jane Howard as well as DH Lawrence. Obviously I can only read this in broad daylight, I love spooky stories but am also highly suggestible which basically means I'm a scaredy cat. #traveldiary #abroadabroad #minnamoon #france #bookstagram #nowreading #mrmbookclub
