I’ve just discovered this blog by an Australian woman who has lived in Montreal for 4 years! Looks like I should have no trouble finding plenty of wonderful things to eat with my vegetarian guests in late June… and for me over the nearly four months I will be there. Yay, only 5 more sleeps

Borrowing from Graham Greene in a flip of Travels with my Aunt, I imagined writing letters to my nieces, as their travelling aunt. Crafting the sentences became a way of extruding the experience, giving it birth, drawing its meaning from my soul, nurturing it into something tangible with a life of its own.
The aim of my blog is to open the world to my thought-children, to let them out of the safety of my friends and family and let them experience the world. And in the process I get the honour of taking a larger group with me when I’m wandering around India and beyond, or just reflecting on parallel truths, thinking thoughts that take me to new places new beginnings.
Please journey with me
