https://bloganuary.files.wordpress.com/2021/12/fb-daily-prompt-jan-27.png In the summer of 2019, I took a 4 month vacation in Germany. I was visiting my husband who was working in Hamburg and lived in a small town Wedel, on the banks of Elbe river. I have writen briefly about my time in Wedel here and here. https://www.instagram.com/p/B1HUzORiWLD/ Since I was not working… Continue reading Little pieces of heaven
Today's Bloganuary prompt is too heavy, don't you think? https://bloganuary.files.wordpress.com/2021/12/fb-daily-prompt-jan-26.png Favourite part, huh! What a tough one, especially for someone who loves talking about herself! I think this self-praising attitude is something I want to get rid of. So dear Bloganuary prompt, you are not of any help in this regard. As a teenager, '10… Continue reading 10 things I hate about you…
A dream I would always remember!
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?! It's funny how, in addition to helping me pay my rent and… Continue reading Space Talk – From home to home
Apartment buildings are not very rare in Germany but they are definitely not as tall as the ones I have seen in Bangalore or Gurgaon. In fact when we were living in Wedel earlier, we were in a seven-storeyed Hochhaus, which is like a typical apartment building with 8 flats per floor, and it was… Continue reading The bunker in our basement
Hello World... This is what I type in the browser every time I want to quickly check if my internet is working or not. I don't remember when I started doing this and didn't realise when it became a habit. Maybe it started when I was learning to code, where Hello World holds special significance.… Continue reading Hello World…..
Ruhe is a German word that literally translates to Peace. So Yes. Sunday is Rest Day. I do not know about the rest of Europe, but in Germany hardly anything is open on a Sunday. In addition to religeous reasons this is also for taking the interest of workers into consideration! How awesome is that?… Continue reading Sonntag = Ruhetag
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…
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?
First of all, this is a late post. Long overdue. I moved to Germany in January 2020 so it's almost been a year and the 'new' in the post title is kinda far fetched. At ISRO, I worked for 8 years on design, simulation, analysis and testing of Attitude and Orbit Control System (AOCS) for… Continue reading Life in my new orbit!
So yesterday I took a day off from work. Nothing special. I took a first aid course or "Erste Hilfe Kurs". It cost around 50 Euros and took the entire day from 10 to 5. Well, it's not that I suddenly realised that I should know how to react in emergency life support situations. This… Continue reading My first ever first aid course!
Hello there! And... I am back again from another one of my long hiatuses (ughh..) Is it just me or do you find it just as mind-boggling that 2020 is almost about to end? This year has been a rollercoaster. It's given me happy highs and gloomy lows, but it's been a special one for… Continue reading It’s December already?
