About Me

I’m a tall Englishman who’s about to turn 40.

I’ve never been a great one for travel and haven’t been to that many places.  But in 2014 my life changed forever.

My lovely wife was offered a job in New Delhi, India.  She accepted it.  And took the brave decision to take me with her.

I knew that moving to India would be a culture shock, but I didn’t bank on it being a full on seizure.

Everything wasn’t just new; it was baffling.  To cope I turned into a four year old child.

“What’s that?” and “What are you doing?” were two questions that were never far from my lips.

But I spent most of my time asking, “Why?”

I don’t like to admit it, but there were a few temper tantrums along the way too.  I’d even stamp me feet.  I know.  Very embarrassing.

My wife, adapting gracefully to her new environs, entertained my confusion  She had little choice.  A man-sized toddler was  mooching around the house.

Thankfully, things change.  Today, I’m Dilli addict.  I’m loving the chaos and the confusion, and I’m eager to share my experience with friends and family back home and in my new home.

Namaste New Delhi is a pet project to chronicle my adventures in this magnificent mega-city.

I would love to hear what you think of my blog and what I might be missing out on in this amazing city.
