I am all packed up and ready for the big trip. This really is the big trip, I’ve never been away on my own on holiday before, never been so far away, or for so long. Am I apprehensive? A little, I mean it completely unlike I’ve anything I’ve done before. I know I’m going to completely misjudge what it’s going to be like before I get there.
Knowing that though, I’m feeling really exciting. I haven’t had the “I’m going on holiday!” feeling for years, but it seems to be back now. Thursday night I was feeling quite scared, that I’d miss everything about home too much, but it’s passed now. All I want to do is get out there and take it all in. The sites, sounds and smells. It’s going to be incredible. I will miss home, I will miss Kate, I’m sure I’m going to have good days and bad days, and I will get the dreaded Delhi Belly. But who cares right? It’s a once in a life time adventure and I’m going to do it. Hurrah!
There should be Internet availability (in fact, the first place I’m staying tonight has e-mail facilities) so I will report back with how everything is going, either on here or via e-mail. If you want to receive some e-mails from me, leave me a comment with your address in it. Don’t put a website in though or I won’t see it. Feel free to put something like [NOSPAM] in the middle of it though to avoid the spambots. Failing all that, I’ll see you in on August 22nd. Waahooo!
