Until you take that leap of faith, you’ll never know how far you can fly…

One day I responded to a message from an unknown sender and my heart started to beat faster. Six months later I’m in India, marrying him. Leaving my family, friends and pharmacy career in England, I followed my heart on a one-way ticket and started new life and bicultural joint family in a small traditional city in India (Nagpur).

Who Am I?

I’m a mummy bear, firangi bahupani puri devouring, pug pampering, Libra sun Leo rising, ENFP, Goddess worshiping kind of a girl. I love learning about culture, exploring the transformative power of mythology, creating fusion food and observing the little things.

The purpose of my blog is to share my experiences and anecdotes of marriage and motherhood in India. This is where I document everything I have learnt whilst trying to find happiness and balance between two very different worlds. I hope you enjoy joining me for the ride and will find it entertaining and informative!

Hey, maybe you will be inspired to take your own leap of faith?
