About Me

My name is Rekha. I am 29 and by qualification an architect but I like to think of myself as a reluctant one – you’ll find out why soon enough. I am at heart a writer and an artist. I disconcertingly show traits that fit pretty perfectly for a Sagittarius. Let’s break it down – the persistent traits: footloose and fancy free (check), tactless (check), loyal (check), optimistic (check), a wanderer, i.e. massive itchy feet (CHECK).

I place myself in no other category, not of my ethnicity or gender or body type or whatever new box they’re shoving people into nowadays. That last bit, about the wandering, I’ve got it bad I tell ya! Hence the name of the blog: Fernweh! (It is such a wonderful word, isn’t it? Thank you, Germany.) Because no matter what other really fun things I’m made up of, I have a desire need to travel. Once I am in one place for more than a year, the itching starts, I have to move. I’ve been living away from home since I was 14, first boarding school, then college, and then work. You would assume that being away so much would have given me homesickness but no, I have that rare affliction of farsickness.

Right now I travel to places that aren’t very far flung but hopefully as the journey with this blog moves forward, so will my travels. Until then, I will be sharing my (currently humble) travels, my art, my (witty) thoughts, my recipes, fashion, of course my writing, and who knows what else. You can also follow tidbits of my life on Instagram if you feel so inclined. I won’t think you’re a stalker, I swear…
