Hello! It’s been a while since I last checked in so I wanted to quickly pop in to update you all. In fact, it’s been a while since I got some time to myself at all. It’s been a busy few weeks as I finished up at work whilst doing a huge spring clean of my house. I also had to make time to as prepare for a long trip abroad. If you follow my Instagram, you may already know this… However, for those that don’t, I am currently writing to you from India.
I am really excited about this trip because it’s far longer than my usual travels. Instead of briefly visiting a country for a long weekend break or a week or two, I have the opportunity to stay in India for 75 days. Yes, 75 whole days… Aka two and a half months. During this time, I will be volunteering at a charity I used to fundraise for and donate to (which is really exciting as I get to see where the money has gone and see firsthand what the charity does) and I’ll also be able to spend time with my relatives that live over here. I’ve just spent a few days at the charity and have been introduced to a few of the projects they do. They do amazing work – I may have to share some of it with you after I’ve gotten to experience it more. This is something that I have not had the chance to do before so I’m really excited to have such an opportunity. There’s no doubt that this will be a busy holiday for me, rather than a relaxing one but that’s how you truly discover a country and feel satisfied right? Plus I prefer it this way as I get bored easily if there’s nothing to do. Of course, I will try to stay on top of the blogging too. I have tons of amazing things to share with you, including some product reviews, new card designs and a travel related collaboration that’s coming up soon. I am hoping to stumble across a few stationery stores whilst I’m in India and find some treasures to add to my collection too. The biggest hindrance to my blog activity, however, will be access to the Internet, as I’m pretty dependent on that!
The internet is iffy here, to say the least, which has prevented me from posting sooner than now… Furthermore, I have been travelling around to different houses or cities as I visit different people in the area, which has definitely not helped with internet access. Being out and about has meant my blog has, unfortunately, had to take a little bit of a backseat during this time. This should settle down over the next few days, giving me a little bit of a structure to plan my weeks in advance… Hopefully. That’s the plan, at least!
So I just wanted to quickly check in to update you all about the irregular activity recently and warn you that I might not be able to get a post up weekly, as I usually aim to do. Let’s see how this works out…
For now, this is Reema over and out. See you soon!
