Asia here we come!

Well here we are, we set off tomorrow, can’t believe how quickly its come around to be honest. We have been packing like for the past couple of weeks and quite frankly im bored of packing and repacking, but Chris insists that i will get used to it, and perhaps even enjoy it one day...i wait with baited breath! If all goes to plan, we are getting the flight tomorrow morning from Manchester at 10.30am, via Helsinki (with a 2 hour stop over) and then continue to Mumbai (arrive 4.25am). Thats the master plan. Then apparently we are having breakfast when we arrive before collapsing on the nearest bed!

Asia here we come!

Hi everybody!

Well, as this is the first entry to the blog and we haven’t yet left the country, please do not get too excited. Chris is forcing me to write the blog whilst he deals with the more manly affair of ‘photos and maps’, this is how my life will be for the next few months, chained to a computer, whilst Chris dictates our days activities to me. No in all honesty, this is a great idea, it will make sure that everybody gets updates at the same time, hopefully giving you all a piece of mind and giving you all something to do in your lunch breaks!

It’s now 9 days until we leave for Mumbai on Sunday 1st February, and we have successfully planned, re-planned and planned some more (when I say ‘we’ I mean ‘Chris’, but I was there for moral support and all that jazz). So far we have the first flight booked, a month’s worth of train journeys around India and a couple more flights for later on. Chris is now in the process of booking our first few hotels, some breaking the bank at nearly £5 a room, the cost of inflation eh? Needless to say we are both excited and nervous at the same time, but we will be fine! Everything else seems to be going well, we just have a few more things to buy and then we shall be on our way! I’ll write before we go, if I remember!

Love Chris and Alex
