Travel time…

Global views


Not sure if you’ve noticed but I’ve been a bit pre-occupied the last while.

Lots happening behind the curtain with the upshot that in just a few hours I will be on a plane from Mumbai to London… enjoy the weekend there catching up with my partner, seeing him perform, hopefully meet a few friends!

Then hop on another plane to Toronto. Hope and pray everything goes smoothly with my Indian visa submission.

Hop on another plane to Winnipeg to spend some much needed time with family and friends.

Then hop on yet another plane back to Toronto where my sincere wish is that a lovely new visa will be ready and waiting for me. Pretty please!

And then, yes you got it… hop on another plane back to London then home to Mumbai.

Do you love Mumbai too?

My adopted home…

Won’t bore you with the details but this is a big change for me. Til now I’ve been terribly spoilt in the visa department. With a flourish of a pen all that changed. So now… my fate is in the hands of some random stranger. Just as it is for many people. Wish me well!!

  1. I realized that you seem busy as no posts from you. Well, here’s wishing you all the luck, success and happiness. By the way, I loved the Love Mumbai picture. Where was it clicked? Can I get the rights to use it in my blog with credit to your name?

  2. I hope it all works out. I have a Canadian friend who’s lived in India for 20 years and is facing the same issue. Good luck!

    • Hey Allison… Yup know I’m not the only one affected by Modi’s pen flourish! I hope I’ve found a solution – at least I’ve gone with an option that was more work to get ready but is completely legit so hopefully no snags. Fingers crossed!!!!

      In the meantime, so fabulous to be able to spend the weekend in London with my partner. 🙂

  3. Good to see you on here, Carissa! Good Luck with the visas….and safe travels!!

  4. Aw, Carissa, what a lovely trip… if only it wasn’t underscored by such horrible uncertainty 😦 May the Goddess Visa (Vishnu’s distant cousin) shine on you!
