“I didn’t know that I could catch a fly with my bare hands. I didn’t know that I did, after all, fear heights a little. I always thought I had zero problems with it – until I stood at a cliff’s edge on a small mountain in New Zealand expecting excitement, only to feel my legs go soft and an urge to start crawling on all fours. I didn’t know that there is a limit to how much I can take overseas and yearn to go home – I always thought the wanderlust in me could never be quenched.”

“Movers and packers work very swiftly. If you don’t watch the packers closely during the packing process, they would just pack everything and anything they get their hands on. So we had to make sure the items not meant to be sent through the packers be sifted and stored separately in boxes before they arrived. Sharing experiences is a great thing especially when it involves uprooting yourself from one country to another. Have any of you had to relocate?”
