When I came here for the first time, we didn't know anything about India. We come from a very different culture - we had no clue what India's all about and how life goes on here. To be honest, we did expect a little hostility because I've travelled and we've lived in quite a few countries and that's what we were used to. But the people here turned out to be so kind and helpful.
My children go to Navrachana International School and they have never complained about anything. My son is a swimmer - he swims for Vadodara; it's something I'm very proud of. He also enjoys playing the guitar. The city is not congested so we can go wherever we want - whether for shopping or for work - everything is close by. My office is just 15 minutes away from home. I get to spend a lot of quality time with my family. My job requires me to relocate every few years but our memories of Vadodara will always put a smile on our faces.
