English Wife, Indian Life

added on 12/09/2013 by: LaurenMokasdar
Since I was a little girl I had dreamt of going to India. The colours, traditions and spirituality of India have always enchanted me. I knew it was inevitable that I would visit India someday. I did not know that when my dream of going to India finally did come true, I would be going there to meet my in-laws, get married to my true love and see where I would be living for the rest of my life. I left my career as a pharmacist in England and followed my heart on a one-way ticket to India. The purpose of this blog is to share my experiences of Indian life, love and marriage. I hope documenting my journey can provide inspiration and information to those who are also in cross cultural relationships, anyone considering visiting/living in India and readers who are simply curious to see how an English wife adapts to an Indian life. The purpose of this blog is to share my experiences of Indian life, love and marriage.
