What I Wore // Leela Palace, Bangalore

One of the best things about living in India is the weather.  I’m someone who complains of being cold ALL THE TIME, even during a decent UK summer, so for me the temperature here is just perfect.  I know it’s kinda mean to write about the sunshine we’re enjoying when so many people are in the midst of the worst winter yet, but you know what?  My family and friends are miles away, I’ve not seen them for 4 months and I miss them terribly, so I reckon I’m allowed to sing about the positives of living abroad  🙂

There are oodles of 5 star hotels in Bangalore and they’re all really
expensive but sometimes it’s really nice to go sit, relax and sip a gin
in their gardens, and that’s exactly what we did last Saturday.  One of
our friends had just returned from a trip back to the UK – it was a
longer trip than usual and he found it hard to leave home again for
India – so he was keen to remind himself of the awesome reasons to live
here.  Don’t get me wrong; I love living here I really do.  I will be
very sad to leave when the time comes, but there are many things that
make living in India difficult.  Spending a couple of hours in a
beautiful garden, wrapped in sunshine is one of our little treats.
