We are in the middle of high peak wedding season right now. Lotsa work around and also kinda stressful for both of us. Times like that make us thing back to our travels and realize (remember) how grateful we should be for our lives. All plays well right now here in our world. We are half time through of our first year of full time biz owners and still very happy with the decision.
On the other hand, we know millions of people on our planet have not been blessed with so much luck. India is one of our most favorite countries in the world (for what we have seen until now) and it is always a pleasure to be there and see how others deal with their daily circumstances and issues they are confronted with.
We go to bed every night under a dry roof and some of us cool their houses down to 20 degrees if the sun and weather plays the real summer outside. Most areas in India right now where extremely hot, like 45 something degrees almost every day all day long. If that’s “over” the rain starts soon and instead of the heat, people have to deal with loads of water all day. While we go the bed every night under a dry and clean roof, others can’t.
For us, thinking back of what we have experienced in other countries helps us a lot to stay grounded and to not let our small issues get bigger than they really are. Think about that if you are on the edge the next time. Think about if your problem is a real problem or just something someone made up. We almost cannot think of a real problem in our world besides anything regarding health. This is the only exception for us. But that’s something people all over the world have in addition!
Wishing you a great week
Love from Munich
Carmen and Ingo
PS: we have still tons of unpublished photos from our last Indian trip, here are a few from Udaipur and the streets of Delhi.
