I’m Kaspia, a stylist and traveller from Sydney, Australia.
Before I could crawl, I travelled. My parents carried me. They camped with me. They crossed borders with me. I still like spaghetti from a tin. But I also developed a very early appetite for adventure, discovery and learning about ways other people in the world spend their days, decorate their living spaces and adorn themselves.
Before my husband Benjamin Gilmour and I had our children, we embarked on many exciting travels, from motorbike journeys across Indian deserts, to daring escapades on the Pakistani frontier. Now we are happy to say our young daughter Paloma and son Romeo already have dozens of stamps peppering the pages of their passports.
Anthropology is not just for academics. By way of journal entries and Instagram images, I hope to share with you my ‘travels in style’, my exploration of the varied ways in which humans express themselves in their environments and through personal beautification. I also hope to encourage those who hesitate to travel with young children, that it’s not only possible to take them with you, but despite the challenges the experience can be truly amazing and one of the greatest gifts you could ever give them.
