This is a little note for you, and if you are reading this, why thank you for dropping by.
I am a writer in my 30s, born in the city of Salalah in Oman and raised in Calcutta, India. A few years ago I quit my job as a senior correspondent with a newspaper bureau in New Delhi, India, and moved to the UK with my husband. We spent time living in the city of Leicester, but our best-loved years in England was spent in Northampton, the town of cobblers (who make dreamy, expensive shoes).
Earlier on this year in 2017, it was time to hop across the pond to a quiet town in New Jersey. We are taking it one day at a time for how we miss our days of pottering around bucolic villages in the British countryside and hopping onto early morning flights for Europe – it is a veritable heartache. A change is not easy, is it? People take ages trying to get used to a new shampoo. Here we are talking about a whole new continent altogether. But we are trying to tide over it with quirky American road trips ’cause we share a passion for travel, adventure, food and photography. Some day – and I cannot wait for it – we want to have a family of two cuddly big dogs when we have a cottage to our name. Maybe somewhere in a tiny village in Cornwall. A girl can dream.
To keep moving is the great affair of my life and this travelling diary is a record of these precious memories that shall make me smile when I am 80, and you, hopefully now.
Love and sunshine
