That Feeling That You Need To Be Somewhere Else – Is That What Being Adrift Feels Like?

I finished watching a Netflix film titled, ‘Kho Gaye Hum Kahan’ meaning – Where did we get lost? It seemed apt, as I have recently found myself wondering that, too. Well, I take that back – it has been a recurring theme in my life that surfaces its head now and then. What am I …

Humanity could do with a little bit of trust these days, right?

As promised last week, here is a snippet of our trip to Costa Rica. We went to a small strip of land surrounded by ocean, canals and forest called Tortuguero. It is named after Turtles which use the black sandy beaches of Tortuguero for the nesting/hatching session. I chose this place because it seemed contained …

Swiss Dairies – Peek Into The Sojourn!

Some people travel to escape life, and some to experience them. I am the latter kind of traveller. However, it wasn’t always the case. At first, I would check everything in the top ten to-do list, so the trips were hectic but satisfying. And at that time, it was all new to me, both the …

Be Surprised

I was a little down when we were leaving London – it is almost a physical tug on my heart. It gets harder and harder to leave London, much like India. Such is life – and we ordered a Uber to get to the airport. I got into the cab all prepared to dwell on …

Not all who wander are lost

I remember somebody telling me about their best friend who has known them since childhood. Most people will probably say, ‘Awwww, that’s so nice.’ Not you, you are thinking – ‘That is so scary, why would I want that?’ You have lived in a place for five-plus years, and the locals ask you – “Is …

Happy New Year. #Sydnye

Happy New Year All. This year we were in Sydney for the New Years and decided to do what we never did even once in the seven-year we lived in London. Watch the fireworks in person. A well-organized event in Sydney. There are different vantage points. The one we chose was the McMahons point – …

Everybody Is An Outsider

In our recent trip to London I could not help but wonder on how different my mind and body react to being in London. The tall buildings – crowds of people around you – the buzz of the tubes, buses which you do not notice anymore. I automatically start to walk fast, whiz through the …

London – A walk down the memory lane

We lived in London for seven years before moving to Columbus. I am fortunate enough to have explored London in different phases. You experience a different London when you are a student – a different one when you are working – a different one when you are on paid holiday. London is the locus if …
