Travel Diaries : Back Home To The Okanagan

If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat you'll have seen that I recently went back to Canada after 3.5 years to visit my family! Though I'd seen my family in India and London over this time period, I hadn't been back to where I had grown up so was missing it terribly.

I was born in a very small farming community called Summerland in British Columbia, Canada. I was raised here and moved between Vancouver, Kelowna and Summerland after graduating from high school. Of course it just so happened that I married a man from one of the most metropolitan cities it the world- London, so moved there after marriage 5 years ago! Now I live in busy Dubai, and have started to realize how much of a small town girl I really am - and God, do I miss it!

Kelowna is a city in the same valley as Summerland, and has some beautiful restaurants, bars, and of course the mountains and beaches. It was end of autumn and beginning of winter when we were there, so with the fall leaves, crisp, cold, fresh air, hot coffee, warm fireplaces, and of course my family - it was refreshing, relaxing and just want I needed.

What's the saying? You can take the girl out of the small town, but you can't take the small town out of the girl. Yep, that's me.
