We are currently having a three-month road trip around India and Nepal before we move back to the UK On January. We have been traveling away from Hyderabad for just over a week so far after living there for just over a year. My mum has been working for a hospital and helping teach midwifery in government and private hospitals.
My siblings and I have been going to an international school for the past year. Hyderabad is such a great city and I am missing it already as is always had something new to offer. I made some great friends whilst living in Hyderabad and had some great experiences.
ISH (the name of our school) was very different from a school in England as we had much smaller classes and more online learning. We also did more sports and extracurriculars than in the UK like travel to Delhi to do a swimming competition and I went on a school trip to Hampi for a week!
We are currently in Bodhgaya, the place where Lord Buddha found enlightenment underneath the Bodi tree. It was such an amazing place to visit as it is filled with monks visiting from all over the world to meditate and pray in the shade of this magnificent tree. The tree that we saw was actually a fourth-generation offspring of the original tree taken from another descendant of the third-gen. tree in Sri Lanka. We also saw where he did his seven-week meditation after finding enlightenment, and all of these places were really stunning and tranquil. We also had some really nice Thai food that we were all craving and it was just what we wanted.
I hope you enjoyed this blog and understand a little more about our new adventure, a two years away Family Hijack will be coming soon!
