One week until I fly to India. I will be bringing a beautiful green pashmina, given to me by my mother. I am so looking forward to seeing a part of where my ancestry comes from and witnessing first hand the amazing history and influence of cultures that make India what it is today. I will be studying the culture, music, women's issues and yoga of Northern India for six weeks. I have no doubt this is going to influence me in a profound way and I hope to come back educated about a village I've wanted to visit for a long time. I am very lucky to take this trip and although I won't make it to Gujurat (where my ancestry specifically originates), I will be in the vicinity and can't wait to have my love of colour, spicy food, silver jewellery, bare feet, eclectic music, yoga, meditation and nomadism all affirmed.

I will be blogging here about my travels, experiences and adventures. I am looking forward to sharing all of this with you.

Thank you for following and bless!
