ragu-madhu-photo-about-usWelcome to Life$trkes.com blog. This is our personal blog (Raghu and Madhu). We live and work in RTP area, North Carolina.

About Raghu:

I moved to RTP back in 2006 when Davis Drive was single lane road. I’m working as Software QA Engineer and Blog at HappySchools.com to help Indian (and International Students) navigate Admission to U.S. Universities, F1 Visa to Lifestyle here in the U.S.A.

I always wanted to have a personal blog to talk about Lifestyle, Living, Travel, Kids, Personal Finance, Investing and what not. I had this domain for several years but decide to start writing to create a community around this site.

I came to the U.S.A. in 2002 to study Masters and since then I have lived in Texas, Florida, and North Carolina. I have visited 38 states (if not 41) in the U.S.) and we love to travel at every opportunity we get.

About Madhu:

I’ve been here in the U.S. since  2007. We have a 6-year-old son and second son on the way (end of 2016).

I went back to grad school as a Mom. Travelled out of the country and lived in France (2014) for my first semester in  MGIM program at NC State. I’ve been working as Business Analyst. I loves to write/talk about Parenting, Kids, Kids Activites, Summer Camps, Schools, and all Mommy Stuff and Budgeting.
