6. A talk by DIWC Writer in Residence Tim Mackintosh-Smith

Words and images are the two main ways we communicate. But how do they relate to each other? Tim found out the hard way when he turned his books into a TV series. If you’re a budding writer or film/TV director – or both – you’ll find plenty of food for thought in his experiences (which include negotiating Delhi traffic on an elephant and hunting rats in the Crimea!)

  • Gion. One of the oldest town in the world. A town which was built to accommodate the needs of travelers and visitors to the shrine. Kyoto's famous Geisha's district. It has become one of my favorite places now in Japan! --------------------------------------------------------- #TravelwithTJD #hellotomorrow #RCmemories
  • It wasn't too late after all... caught on time. 🌸

  • Walking through the streets in Kyoto, the mystical world untouched by time. I came across the little boy who was crying to his mom. She was so gentle while soothing him with hugs and words of comfort. She showed love and patience and most of all empathy. I couldn't decide which picture to post to tell the story so I posted them both. 💕 --------------------------------------------------------

  • Shinjuku Garden is a 15 minute drive from @ritzcarlton Tokyo. It's one of the most popular gardens for the Cherry blossoms. Three different styles have been incorporated in the design of the garden: Japanese Traditional Garden, English Landscape Garden, and the French Formal Garden. They are amongst the best remnants of the Meiji era. ---------------------------------------------------#TravelwithTJD #RCMemories #hellotomorrow
  • We'll always find our way back to each other... 💫 ---------------------------------------------------

  • Last night, I took a 9 hour direct flight from Dubai to Narita airport in Tokyo with @emirates on the A380. I had planned on sleeping throughout the entire flight but ended up watching one movie after another with Kaiseki cuisine and a bento box! It's my first time in Japan and I've noted all your recommendations! #TravelwithTJD

  • The best way to laugh... when you are laughing so hard...You can laugh till you cry, or lose your breath, but the deepest laugh is so physical that it can cause all your stomach muscles to get tight. That's what I'm taking with me forever from this episode of #TravelwithTJD @gili.lankanfushi
  • No where else I'd rather be right now... 🌴
