A new blog!!

New blog. www.onmyfrontporchlookingin.blogspot.com

I have been thinking for some time about starting a new blog. I originally started blogging as a way for family and friends to follow along on our journey to bring Sierra home. The writing gave me an outlet during the stressful times we endured. I have always enjoyed writing and find it relaxing and comforting. I would like to continue writitng about the things that mean the most to me, my family, friends, my relationship with God and just the everyday nuances of life in the country. This blog will always old a special place in my heart. In it is our journey to China to meet our amazing daughter. Someday she will be able to read it and learn how much she is truly loved and how everyone was waiting for her arrival.
While I was trying to figure out what to name my new blog, a song came on the radio. I had always liked it. It is sung my Lonestar. It talks about sitting on the porch and looking at the beautiful views he can see, but his favorite view is looking in and seeing his wife and kids. The song says its the beauty inside that is important. Anyway when I heard it I knew it was the perfect title for my new blog.
I would like to include in my blog more about me, my husband, and my other 3 wonderful children as well as Sierra and how she is blossoming and growing. I hope everyone will click on the link and join me in looking in!!!!!

Dear Kathie,

Well done. Hope you and your kids are blessed with all the joys and happiness in this world.

And since you seem to be an avid traveller, I wonder whether you would be interested in travelling to India.

If yes, then let me share the good experience that I had in India last year, thanks to this guy named Ranjan Chetri.

I usually do not travel to third world countries. Like everyone, I have my own issues. I dread being left in the middle of a populace that hardly shares anything with me except for a human body.

Nevertheless, I gathered enough courage last year and decided to visit India on the assurance of my Indian friend that the travel agent is one of his most trusted agents. He advised me to visit the North-East India as they were very warm and innocent at heart. He said that Ranjan specialised in arranging trips to India’s North Eastern states.

So I called Ranjan (Mobile: +919899371208) and got myself a fortnight long package. It was very cheap and probably cost 30-40 percent less than a similar costing trip to other regions of India.

My itinerary included a visit to Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Dharmashala (where Dalai Lama lives), Ladakh and to the Kaziranga National park in Assam, notwithstanding a 2 day trip to the hilly capital city of Shillong. I must tell you that it was an experience of the lifetime.

The sheer hospitality of the people of North-East India was overwhelming. For not a single moment did I feel lonely or insecure. I therefore recommend everyone to visit the North East India. It is rightly called a paradise unexplored.

I have come to learn that Ranjan along with his few associates have come up with a website: http://www.triptuners.com. Take a look at the site. I might be useful for you if you plan to, or at least know somebody who is looking to spend a memorable time with his family, spouse or friends.
