Where do you call home?

Where do you call home? - Our Global Love

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 (the rural Northeast in the … Read More

The Village

When people talk about visiting India some of the first things that are mentioned are the noise, the pollution and the traffic not the hush and the solitude that can be found in such a busy and moving country. Given that most people enter the country through major airports and in the heart of the city, these are often the … Read More

Becoming Vegetarian

One of the things I appreciate about living in India is the immense amount of vegetarian options. I was raised a carnivore, in a meat (with every meal) and potatoes household. I never really saw anything wrong with what I was eating. I grew up in the country and it was common to go buy a pig or a cow … Read More

Culture Attack

As anybody who has lived in a foreign place for an extended period of time knows, there are many different stages that you go through regarding culture shock.

Last year I missed this wonderful season when mothernature begins to prepare herself for the cold winter months looming in the distance. Instead, rather, … Read More

Life Abroad (again…)

Oh my goodness how time flies! I can’t believe I haven’t posted since I’ve gotten here. Sorry to leave you wondering if we ever made it or if the volcanoes interrupted our plans. We made it safe and sound =). While I wish I could say that our time here has been adventurous and lots of trips have been taken … Read More

Celebrate Love!

Love really is an amazing thing. It can change your life entirely. I can’t imagine a world where I am restricted in who I am allowed to love. 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 that have made me step … Read More

7 Things I Love about Living in the States

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 haven’t taken the time … Read More

Don’t blink

It really is amazing to me how quickly time is flying by. My recent trip to India which was almost six months seemed to pass in just a matter of weeks. If I’m already feeling like this I can only imagine how I will feel once I have children! All these feelings have come up today because at this time … Read More

Finding your culture pt 2

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 to begin with, even if … Read More
