The diversity in India does not merely extend to its people and the culture of the land but is also aptly represented in the wildlife that can be found within the country. With 89 national parks and over 400 wildlife sanctuaries, India is home to some of the rarest species of the animal kingdom.

My experiences as a local expat

I recently moved back to my home country, India. I'd ended up being an expat for over a third of my life, living in two different continents, starting the journey while I was still in school. I have a feeling that I might continue to re-live the feeling of a fish out of water as I explore India anew as an adult. I love to travel, eat good food and you'll usually find me listening to music or curling up with a funny book.

Journey to Bangalore, India with my family (Nancy, Michael, Alanna (11) and Craig (10)). This blog will track our experience moving from the "Canadian Cul de Sac" to India. Our main incentive for moving for two years is for the cultural experience. So, sit back and enjoy the ride. Who knows what to expect? I sure don't.
