I have just returned from my amazing holiday from Gambia and of course am going to share all my inspirations with you! For those of you who are not familiar with this beautiful destination, it is the smallest country in mainland Africa and is surrounded by Senegal on the West coast of the continent. As expected my trip was filled with lots of gorgeous surface pattern inspiration and I also managed to spot over 30 species of weird and wonderful birds! (Gambia is one of the top bird watching countries in the world with 157 species). Here are a few of my fave inspirational pics from my trip.
