Pre Departure

Hey friends/family!!

Welcome to my blog! I'll be updating this frequently with stories/pictures of my experiences!

In the past few months, I've received a flood of information about India. It's been overwhelming, but I'm grateful for all the tips. It seems that India, and Delhi in particular, is the epitome of paradoxes - the progressive mixed with the conservative, the exorbitant rich beside the slums, the vast modernization and the traditional. I've been warned plenty - take your meds, only drink bottled water, don't walk around alone, don't venture outside after dark. It's clear I will need some time adjusting to a new way of life, but I'm doing my best to have an open mind and an adaptable nature. I'm hoping that India will show me all the beauty it has to offer.

Thanks for all your wishes and kind thoughts so far!
