Changing latitudes

Tomorrow = JHB – Mumbai – Delhi – Dharamsala – Mcleodganj.

I’m not a particularly good traveller.  The ‘getting to the airport on time’ thing generally freaks me out.  In fact the whole lead up to a trip (even to Cape Town for God’s sake) gets me revved up to a high-pitched anxiety.  Once I’m airborne though I’m usually fine (take-offs and landings are another least favourite).  And foreign, chaotic airports also give me little adrenalin surges … which is all so stupid since I’ve done my fair share of travelling and consider myself fairly competent … and I do enough yoga to take the edge off, you’d think.

But no.  So the next 36 hours or so will be interesting.  But despite the IBS, I’m excited.  Really.  Bring it.  I have totally been enjoying my life these past few months, but I still feel like there needs to be some integration, some direction (I’m a late bloomer as my mom loves to say), and I’m hoping India and Mcleodganj provides some welcome perspective. 

And it looks like a shocking place right?

See you on the other side …

  1. I love the pics of Mcleod Ganj. I am planning a trip there sometime with a backpack and a camera. There is so much in my own country I am yet to see :).
