“Who is the happier man: he who has braved the storm of life and lived, or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed?”
~ Hunter S. Thompson
As I flip through my Indian photos, I am reliving my incredible journey and am eager to share what I learned. Adapting to a foreign environment made me more receptive to cultural diversity. If I had played it safe and not ventured far away from my comfy suburban existence, I would have missed out on a once in a lifetime experience that included sharing my teaching expertise at an international school. Do you have an international teaching experience you’d like to share?
In the next few blogs I am planning to recall the treasured moments from my Indian adventure, the setting for my upcoming book- May This be the Best Year of Your Life: A Memoir. The pictures in forthcoming blogs and in my photo gallery illustrate places you will read about in my memoir.
Maybe my pictures and stories will inspire you to visit India sometime soon. Please let me know if you are planning an Indian vacation or will be teaching in India.
The memoir was a finalist in the Travel category for the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, the 2013 International Book Awards, and the 2013 National Indie Book Excellence Awards.
