Call me CRAZY, but I started planning for my travels to India back in November after casually flirting with the idea in October 2007.
Although as I write this, I am still in the midst of finalising ticket bookings, hotel reservations, VISA, shopping etc., the experience thus far has been exhilarating, frustrating and wonderful.
The frustration it appears is largely due to the fact that India, as it turns out is as diverse and spectacular as a Bollywood movie – colourful, exuberant, exciting, loud and dramatic.
During my course of ‘research’, I realised that India is a place to expect the unexpected!
Hence, armed with an exhaustive lists of “to dos”, “must have” and “don’ts” coupled with priceless advice from Indiamike.com and a new found friend, Vijay Pandey, I will set out and discover India in January.
Unable to contain my excitement much longer, I altered this tin mini suitcase (My India Brag Box) to store all the memorabilia, knick -knacks and memories I will have on India.
Love it, or hate it, I am pretty convinced India will jostle my entire being and fill my Brag Box up.
… and if not, I am glad to have found a gem in a person, whom I will cherish for life.
