It was something out of a movie. Two flustered American girls chased a moving train, as their enormous luggage bounced behind them. I kid you not, Paige and I were certain at this point that we would miss our only ride to Goa; which ultimately meant we would miss our flight… Read full post »

During our time at Auxilium Orphanage, Paige and I have grown extremely close with the girls. We have developed unique bonds with every girl, but in different ways; each relationship depends on the girl’s perso… Read full post »
As our days in Hassan dwindle, Paige and I still manage to keep ourselves busy—from a wedding, to visiting a student’s home—there is never a dull moment around here! One Sunday, a young, beautiful woman named Amu greeted us after mass with a wedding invitation. Although we’d n… Read full post »
Last Friday Paige and I experienced a most pleasant surprise. We had been told that the preserved body of St. Don Bosco (the patron saint of the youth) would be brought to Hassan for a mass and special viewing ceremony. Prior to our departure, Paige and I prepared ourselves mentally, physically… Read full post »
For the past month, Paige and I have anxiously awaited our weeklong trip to Delhi to visit her cousin Stacy, who works for the United Nations. Being with the girls at the orphanage 24/7 is such an amazing experience—but it also wears on us. We have been dying for English conversation… Read full post »
**This blog is from a couple weeks ago, but my blog about our week in Delhi will be up soon! J
Throughout our time in Hassan, Paige and I have been taken on various day trips. The most recent was to Mysore—now if that name sounds familiar to you, then… Read full post »
As Paige and I approach our month and a half mark in India, we have become accustomed to various lifestyle changes. Don't worry, we haven't stopped shaving our legs or washing hair--but we have become very open to the Indian culture and all it has to offer.
At first, it was… Read full post »
In my very first blog (about beginning my life in India,) I stated that I was hoping this adventure would help me to"blossom into myself." After only a month in, I seemed to have found my blossom...in more ways than one...
Coming back from a morning walk, Paige and I saw a… Read full post »
As the one-month mark quickly approaches, Paige and I have found ourselves completely settled, content and happy with our lives here in India. I can't say it was an easy adjustment; but now that we are in the swing of things, we have made lasting relationships with the sisters, children and… Read full post »
Everyone knows that after a great night of partying; you suffer a hangover in the morning. After guiltlessly devouring a bowl of cookie dough; an hour later you are curled up on the couch ready to vomit. It seems as if every high inevitably has a low. What I've experienced in In… Read full post »
**After an entire week of the Internet being down...I'm not really sure how to start this blog. It's amazing what happens in a day; so I'll try my best to summarize what's been going on the past week in India.
I once read that life is full of changing tides. It's our decision… Read full post »
When I decided to write a blog about volunteering in an Indian orphanage, I thought I would go about it with a poignant and sentimental voice. However, given my circumstances, I've discovered that being able to find a sense of humor in a place like this, is imperative for my sanity. I… Read full post »
