Happy New Year! 20 January 2020 was when I joined my new job. I can't believe it's already been 2 years since I started living and working in Germany. At times it feels like yesterday and sometimes it feels like I've been here forever. As I've mentioned in one of my previous posts, in 2020… Continue reading Two.

Space Talk – From home to home

What's the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word 'home'? The dictionary may define it as a place where one lives, but to me home isn't really just a physical place, but more like a feeling. Philosophical much?!

Los Geht’s! 02 – Long Distance Again…

So, where were we? After a lot of deliberation and long pros and cons list, the decision was made. Govind accepted the offer for an unlimited permanent contract in Germany. We were excited but also nervous.... At 30, and with about 10 years of work experience in India with a good salary and a super… Continue reading Los Geht’s! 02 – Long Distance Again…

Los Geht’s! 01 – To go or not to go?

After having worked in India for nearly a decade, the decision to pack up our life and move to another continent was definitely not an easy one. In this post series I talk about our move from India to Germany. Our decision to move to Germany, or anywhere out of India for that matter, was… Continue reading Los Geht’s! 01 – To go or not to go?
