BON VOYAGE.


I've scheduled this post for eight this morning, around the same time I'll be checking in at the airport, and hopping onto a flight bound for India, where I'll be spending the next three months backpacking around the country with my boyfriend. We've booked a couple of nights accommodation in Dehli, but after that, we have no plans. We know roughly where we want to go and what we want to see, but we're going to just go with the flow, and discover everything we can about India. I know that it's going to be tough at times, and I'm expecting to experience some culture shock for the first few days, but I want to fully embrace India - the food, the people, the places.

As we're backpacking, we're taking very little. I actually surprised myself with how little I packed. I've packed a couple of basic pieces - t-shirts, leggings, genie pants - that I can mix and match, but plan on checking out the local markets and picking up some things when I get there. What better way to embrace Indian culture, by dressing as they do?

As for my blog, I don't know. I'm not sure when I'll have access to a computer and then internet, but when I do I'll post a quick update - where we are, what we're doing, and what we've eaten, those kind of things, and save the picture for when I'm back and have the time to write something decent to go with them. I'll be snapping away on Instagram during the trip, so you can follow me there for quick updates and lots of food pictures.

Thank-you for all of the messages of bon voyage. Thank-you for putting up with my constant #holiday #adventure #india #excited hashtags, and snaps of my countdown timer. And thank-you for reading.

Peace.

Rebecca.

  1. Good luck on your travels. I've been to India a few times, it's a real eye opener. Avoid food stalls on the streets, better to go to a local restaurant to avoid doggy tummies.

    Can't wait to hear all about your trip.
    Have a great time and stay safe x x
