Welcome to Stars, Wanderlust & Me! I’m Kavita, an astrophysics PhD student who loves travel, and all things cute and cuddly. I believe you don’t have to quit your job to travel in order to enjoy the world (unless you want to, that is!). Instead I try to enjoy the best of both worlds: having a home base and a job I love as well as exploring the world out there.
I am asked all the time: “Where are you from?” I was born and raised in South India. When I was 17, I moved to the UK to do my undergraduate degree. Being in the UK was a great opportunity to take lots of short trips (and a few longer ones!) around the country and to Europe. It was also at university that I met Paul, now my husband and the person I am constantly asking to hold the lens cap of my camera.
Fast forward 4 years, Paul and I move to Texas to do our PhDs. Now that we live in the land where everything is bigger, we try to travel around the USA as much as we can, while doing research full time.
