J and I moved to Singapore from Bangalore for good in 2007, in 2006 I played tourist for a couple of months while J resided in Singapore. Though we were married in Bangalore , I should say our life actually began in Singapore. M came into our lives. Life began. We made Singapore our home for almost 7 years. Everything was easily accessible, M’s school, Market place, Indian food and groceries, Bangalore was just a 4 hour journey. Asian culture, never felt far from home. Life was good. We were in our comfort zone all cozied up. But, Life said – A journey I am , get ready for the next stop and yes, we did.
In 2013 we moved – this time to Cambridge, England. A move to a different continent this time proved challenging. We were stressed – relocating, house hunting, school hunting, My job hunting, Making friends, Beating loneliness, Braving the weather…Staying so far away from India and Family. All became a part and parcel of the package . Well, it’s almost 2 years now and I should say we’ve made good friends here in Cambridgeshire. Have a good social life, M adapted well in school, I found a job and settled in well, found good colleagues, Just when everything seemed well…Life reminds us again – A Journey I am , get ready for the next stop…
It’s now time to move to another country ! The next lap in the journey of Life !
After all – for sure , it is not the destination that matters but the journey !
If it is the memories that matter , then we are making plenty of them without dearth .
Living in different places, traversing through different cultures, meeting different people, looking at life through different perspectives, ultimately Exploring …Exploring the very same phenomenon called LIFE !!!
