I’ve actually been to Sri Lanka twice, but that’s the closest I’ve come to India. I’ve not even transited there, only in Bangladesh flying on Emirates.
This is my first time heading to a country I’ve never been to before and it’s exciting, plus the fact I haven’t really stepped on a plane for the past two years and haven’t had a holiday since I can remember.
I assumed being British and all I didn’t need a Visa for India…I was wrong, very wrong – in fact EVERYONE needs a Visa for India. For anyone wanting to apply, all the info you need is here – http://www.indiavisa.com.my/
Getting the Visa was actually a very pain-free experience.
Watch out India – here we come!
It’s not truly a holiday, but it is in part. I’m mainly flying over to attend a wedding of a very good friend and ex-colleague of mine who is getting married. But we extended our trip for a few days so we could take in some of the sights, sounds and smells of Hyderabad and the surrounding areas.
Either way we are both really excited about it, it’s our first time in a new country together and our first overseas holiday in a VERY long time.
I’ll be back on Monday 13th December, so don’t expect any posts before then. If by some miracle I can post (using my iPhone and WiFi) – I will. But don’t hold your breath.
