My name is Casey and I’m a journalist living in Australia.
A series of seemingly ordinary incidents changed my life in 2008 and I've been with my Nepalese man ever since.
We've encountered a lot over the years being in an intercultural relationship.
I'm not a Nepali woman and never will be. Accepting this reality has involved much internal struggle. I've realised you can't change your values and identity to fit into Nepali culture.
Many parts of Nepali culture are very overwhelming and restrictive, other parts are wonderful. But, mostly, I respect the culture, except for those parts which are against my core values.
This blog is about intercultural love, culture, love, Nepal, Australia and how life is anything but ordinary when two cultures come together.

Love and sunshine to you all

To be honest there are some things I wish my-younger-self had known some years ago. Sometimes when you’re in love, nothing else seems to matter and we find ourselves doing and saying things to our partners to make them happy … Continue reading
Did you know there are many Nepali women who are discriminated against but they don’t even realise that what’s happening to them is actually a type of discrimination? Nepali society has done this great job of ‘normalising’ inequality against women that most of it is never even questioned- even … Continue reading

I am going to give blogging a break for a while mainly because I used to find this blog very liberating but lately it hasn’t been. I have had privacy issues, trolls and essentially a lot of negativity. I am … Continue reading
Hi all, Here are a few photos from our wedding day. It was the best day of our lives and I wish I could do it all over again :) We had the biggest, greatest party afterwards with a mix … Continue reading
1. You worry about getting red tikka on your white dress 2. You have to explain what tikka is to your white friends and no, that there is not blood on your head 3. You have to organise for all … Continue reading
An interesting conversation I regularly have with Rabindra and other Nepalese people is the topic of who is ‘modern’ and who is not amongst our friends and family. When we talk about being ‘modern’, I guess we are talking about … Continue reading

Who else out there is a book worm? I thought I would start a post on some of my favourite books about Nepal; intercultural relationships; hardship and some general books about culture for those wishing to expand their book case … Continue reading
