Hello!

Just checked on here and found your message. Been busy getting organized to go. Sorry..should have checked earlier. Only two weeks to go!! So excited. We are arriving the day before the tour. When are you and your friend arriving? My main concern was what luggage to bring but I think I've got that figured out now. Have you been on a tour like this before? Can't wait.

Hey Wendy,

Only two more weeks, I'm very excited!
My friend arrives on sunday as well, as for me I'll arrive the day the trip begins.
Who are you travelling with?
I've never been on a trip like this before, have you?
So as well I thought about my luggage, but I won't bring a lot with me and I'll take a big backpack and just very light clothes, as it is very hot there right now.

See you soon

Martina

Hello Martina

Yes I am very excited also. I have never been on an adventure like this either. I am going with my son. I bought him a duffle bag on wheels that converts into a backpack if needed. I am just using a duffle bag kind of thing also on wheels. It doesn't convert into a backpack because I'm not too fussy about carrying everything on my back. In a pinch I can sling it over my shoulder but I'm really hoping I can just wheel it around. It will be fairly empty on the way there because I plan on shopping!!!

Where are you coming from? We are from Canada. Where is your friend coming from? Perhaps they will be on the same flight.

And yes I will meet you very soon. Less than two weeks now. :D

Hey Wendy,

Yes I planned to shop as well, but I though I'd take a bagback because I like travelling with it:)
Have you ever been to India?

Well my friend is already in India, but I guess you will meet her in the hotel.
Canada, oh it sounds like a long flight. We are from switzerland.

One more week. :D :D

Hello Martina,

Yes it is a long flight. We have one stopover and it is going to take us 18 hours. I'm sure your flight is a lot shorter. I have never been to India before so this is all new. Have you? It is going to be quite the experience. I can't wait.

Have you seen the news about monsoons in Northern India? Thankfully they were not talking about where we are going. As your friend is already in India, she would be able to tell you how the weather is. I just know its going to be really hot!!

Before we were counting down by weeks and now its days!!!

Wendy,
