One of the most common questions anyone gets when traveling is “where are you from” or “where do you call home?” Personally, I find that question so difficult to answer. I never really felt any true affinity to where I grew up. I was always ready to get out at the first chance I got […]
Chances are you’ve heard about the Nepal Earthquake. At the time of writing this post it is reported that over 4,300 individuals have died and thousands injured. The earthquake happened in the early afternoon on Saturday and by early Tuesday morning media coverage has begun to dwindle. Obviously a disaster in one area does not […]
So a new found interest of mine is to browse the website Buzzfeed. I probably am on that site way more than I should be. Recently the site has had quite a few posts regarding interracial relationships. Interracial relationships can be defined in many different ways. While I prefer to use the term intercultural to […]
2014 brings to us a new year. It’s hard to believe that it has been so long since I have been blogging. So much has happened over the last year and I have grown tremendously as a person. As I began getting ready to get the blog back up and running, I took the time […]
The beautiful thing about the Internet, is that it can allow us to expand our horizons, learn about new cultures and meet individuals that we never would have had the opportunity to meet before.

Abhi and I head back to the States next week and it’s hard to believe that our time here this year has gone by so quickly. Earlier I shared with you the seven things I love about living in the States. India, on the other hand, is a complex and magnificent culture that I am […]

Unfortunately, this is a relatively new phenomenon and is not necessarily the case in all corners of the world. There are two things that are happening today […]
It was a beautiful day today with the sun shining and a nice cool breeze blowing, so Abhi and I went to the park today to enjoy our lunch. While we ate our lunch we began discussing the things we like the most about living in the States. In having this discussion I realized that […]
I’ve been thinking about my previous post on Finding your culture and I have some additional thoughts and questions to pose. In my last post I discussed how we are searching for a culture where we belong or fit in. I’ve been thinking that perhaps this is the reason why we enter into intercultural relationships […]
Growing up in a small town I often felt like I didn’t fit in. Yes I looked like everyone else but my way of thinking and desires were different. I found myself getting lost in books and feeling unsatisfied with the community where I lived. I went to school several hours away in a big […]
(Sorry ahead of time for the long post!) Abhi and I moved back to the US recently after spending the last five months living in India. When people ask me what it was like I find myself at a loss for words. I cannot formulate a description that would be adequate of my experience. I […]
Join us as we share our journey of merging two cultures from opposite corners of the world into one heart, as we travel the world searching for a place to call home.
