IMG_8027fHey,

Im moving countries!!!!

Yes, you read right.

I’ve always been interested in other places, people, cultures and languages and after living and working in India for 26 years i know that I’ve always felt that I wanted to experience not just traveling, but living in different places around the world.

After years of living out of bags, in between trips through India, just to return home to do my laundry i have now upgraded to living out of boxes. 3 Boxes, a suitcase, a haversack and a backpack to be precise. Dealing with all the little details of getting used to an expat life in Dubai, things are finally starting to settle. Paperwork completed and a 2 year visa in hand I’m ready to board my one way flight to my first destination.

Why Dubai? Better career opportunities and to spend some quality family time are my top most influencers other than it opens up to so much more travel to nearby middle eastern countries and even Europe.

Where am i headed next? London but id also like to live in Japan, New Zealand and Paris.

The transition may seem simple but it isn’t easy. To say i am nervous about the year ahead is an understatement. Deciding to move from my safe and secure life in India to a new country, between having to say good bye (again) to family and friends, packing your entire life into 3 boxes and leaving behind everything you love about this immediate environment as you’ve known it be, is still setting in. But in my gut I’m more than ready to say hello to an adventure of a lifetime and thats what matters.

Have you packed up your life and moved to a new country? Leave a comment below, id love to hear about it.

    I recently packed up a secure life with family in UK to moving back to Swadesh. I know how it feels to move to a new place as India is so new to me.
