Shifting Centres: New Delhi to New York

On this blog, I honestly document my experiences as an Indian girl hustling in New York. The idea is to tell you what to expect in everyday life. Some days you'll smile at little things, but others are full of rude shocks. I share how to make the move, what to expect, how to survive and thrive. If you want to know what its like to move here then this is for you. I hope you read through, enjoy and find something to take from my experiences as Im Shifting Centres; from New Delhi to New York.

Start Going Places

Start is me, Joe Start. I'm a long-time expat from California living in the Yvelines, suburbs west of Paris. I write non-fiction about my adventures as an American expat abroad, first-person travel memoirs, cross-cultural observations, the impact of technological innovation on individuals, the history of food, the crossroads of ingredients recipes and culture, and recreational sailing in habitable monohulls, smaller catamarans and dinghies.  I like the word dinghy.  I think I'll write it a third time.  Dinghy. My latest long-form project is the book French License, released this Summer.

Sage & Simple

Once upon a time, I had the chance to move to the happiest country in the world! My restless Aries spirit liked that idea, so I did what any girl in my position would do I grabbed my cat, booked a one-way ticket to Denmark, and became an expat! Then I met an Englishman, fell in love, eloped, and moved to the happiest city in the world.

Maple and Marula

Ive been many things. A university English instructor, a picker upper of dead bodies, a musician, and a sales guy. My work brought me and my family from Vancouver, Canada to Pretoria, South Africa in September 2016, and Im still wondering how that happened. I started this blog mostly because my friends back in Canada kept asking me how things were in South Africa, and posting about my experiences seemed more efficient than repeating myself hundreds of times. Maple and Marula is a way for me to make sense of my new surroundings as an expat who has no idea what Im doing.

Tails From the Vienna Woods

Ours began as the classic ex-pat story in 2012. Darling husband got an overseas post; I went from Working Spouse to Trailing Spouse. The children started planning where to spend their Fall Break, Winter Break, Ski Break, and Spring Break from the American School. Now, one of the children is about to graduate from Uni in America; and the younger one calls Vienna, Home. As for the Foxhound, to whom we promised a dog-friendly life after a 9 hour flight in a plastic crate (and made good on those promises), he has zero plans to return to the U.S. So here we are.
