Hello friends. It’s been a very long time since I’ve written anything, for this blog or otherwise. In fact it’s been nearly a year. Shame on me. So, I’d like to do a quick update for you and soon I’ll be back to writing more regularly.
In November 2016 I was offered a job that I had applied for back in July 2015. A year and four months of different stepping stones later, my dream was FINALLY starting to take shape. I finished out the dreadful job I had at the time in the middle of December and spent a month traveling around the states seeing as many friends as I could. You see, this dream job was going to take me overseas. In January 2017 I started training and found out in March that I was going to be relocating to New Delhi, India for two years. I took some more training, including 8 weeks of full time Hindi classes. (Side note: 8 weeks of Hindi is absolutely nuts.) In May I said goodbye to friends and family and moved to New Delhi.
India has been life changing for me… and I still have 21 months to go. There have been moments when I’ve found myself incredibly homesick – sometimes for family and friends, sometimes for America, sometimes even for food. It can be hard being a foreigner every single day.
However, I have no regrets and wouldn’t trade this life for anything. I’m absolutely fascinated by India’s culture, people, architecture, history, and so much more and I am really looking forward to sharing more experiences with you here at Travel and Treats. And not just my experiences in India, but also some info, tips, lists, stories, and photos about other travel adventures. 2017 has some exciting trips planned to some amazing places including Thailand, Cambodia, Bali, Israel, Myanmar, and The Maldives. And I CAN’T WAIT!!!
Stay tuned and adventure with us!
