Now we are DOWN UNDER
We have now officially become global denizens, this time AJ's work has brought us Down Under- we relocated to Sydney in October 2015. What a wonderful place this is!! It is very difficult to move out of our home country for us- we are excessively fond of India- its noise, pollution, hustle/bustle, they are all very familiar and comforting to us! Whenever we step out life seems to slow down and the all too familiar nostalgia sets in.
Here in Sydney however we have settled in faster- our US experience has come in handy and we have been able to make the transition happen faster. Our new addition to the family is Tulsi- our 15 month old daughter. She came into our lives on Aug 1st 2014 and what a joyful addition she has been. Inspired by VT member Donna, we have taken Tu around with us on many travels already. Being on a flight is almost one of her favourite activities these days, but she seems to have the travel bug in her. She enjoys going to new places and by nature seems very observant when she is out. She cuddles up all the more on every new travel, sometimes making me feel more like a comforter and less like a mom- all wrapped up around her :D She has settled into Sydney rather easily, sometimes I think babies inherently are more malleable than us. They accept changes with equanimity and with no self doubt. As a parent this has been my biggest lesson, to take things as they come. Anyways all the planning is out of the window now in our lives!! ;-) A 15 month old toddler sure is more unpredictable than the weather itself!! lol! %L*
