On the 7th January, myself and my family will embark on the adventure of a life time and go to India for seven months. We literally can’t wait!
For the first part of our trip we will stay in Patnem, south Goa, where the children will attend Vidya Aranya, a local international school. Then in April we will leave Patnem and probably head to Kerala, then Madurai, Chennai and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. It’s always been a dream of mine to go to the Andamans so it’s a bit over an understatement to say I’m excited.
We have been planning our Indian adventure for some time. Initially we thought it just wasn’t a realistic aim but then we thought, “Why the hell not?!” You only get one life after all and if you really want something, you will make it happen.
Here are some pictures from my Yoga retreat in Patnem Goa in 2016 which I lead with my business partner Jackie Lee. I think it might have been then that I began to realise just how magical a place it was and knew I wanted to spend more time there. But in truth, my husband, Mark and I have been dreaming about it for much longer.
I will be posting updates here as we prepare for our trip and of course once we get there. It’s hard to believe that we have got less than 6 weeks to go. We will miss the UK of course but can’t wait to begin this new chapter in our lives.
