Lessons (Ramblings) From India Series


Thought I’d given up on the blog ay? No chance! It’s been a crazy busy summer- in June I worked as a teacher-trainer and led two English summer camps, had an amazing time (and a couple of breakdowns but won’t go into that, ha).

Then I spent a wonderful 4 weeks with my boyfriend at his family home in Sicily. Authentic food, afternoon siestas, going out for gelato, €1 beers, warm evening strolls, camping on the beach, oh it was bliss. The first proper carefree holiday I’ve had in a long time. I felt so welcomed by P’s family and friends- it was a real honor to stay with them.



Then I flew to Dehradun, India, where I participated in a 2-week course in yoga, health and well-being at Doon University with British Council. I kept a diary on how I was feeling and the lessons learnt each day, and now I’m going to turn them into blog posts and keep them as concise as possible (which is really difficult for a rambler like me!). I have to admit, some of the lessons I learnt have already started to fade away and I’ve only been home a few days… every thing just made sense there, you know? Even trying to tell my friends and family about my experiences has proved difficult, everyone thinks it’s far too airy-fairy, and they’re rubbing off on me. But I’m going to try really hard to go through all of my notes and write something coherent, possibly even useful, for you reading!

I hope that writing about my lessons on yoga and on life will help consolidate my thoughts and reflections, but mostly I hope they resonate with you. Do drop a comment if you enjoy the series or want to contemplate the topics with me! I’d be so happy to hear from you.



Hi! I'm Sarah. I dropped out of university tired with the mundane life I was living in England. Now I'm an aspiring ex-pat of the world, having already lived and worked in Vietnam, Italy and Maldives. I'm using this blog to document my experiences and hopefully inspire others!
