New Delhi

sunny 39 °C
View RTW - Asia on MyriandKodi's travel map.

After two days in Indias crazy capital we are ready to leave. Because we didn't get our train tickets to Gorakhpur (which lies on the way to Kathmandu) confirmed, we just cancelled them and booked a flight instead.
Delhi was every bit as we remembered it. Dirty, sweaty, loud and far too many touts trying to push us one way or the other. It feels like running around with a big $ sign on your forehead... Well, we had only considered Delhi as a place to arrive, rest a day or two and then leave for Kathmandu as quick as possible, anyways.
A pity we left the camera at the hotel, so we couldn't take a picture of the sign indicating "Dr. Chens Dental Clinic" (hi Tao;-)) somewhere in the middle of an Indian bazar. So no pictures today, but I'm sure we'll be able to provide some from Nepal.
Tomorrow we take our flight out and hope for more peaceful surroundings afterwards.

To London

Finally! We took off on our first short haul: London.
The last six days were increadbly busy. Emptying our flat, meeting people, organizing the last bits and ends. I would have hoped to start the trip a bit more relaxed. Well, what the hell. We're off! Right now we're sitting in Costas at Luton Airport, waiting for my brother to pick us up. The next days will hopefully be spent quietly with him, Christina, Bertie, Quincie and Millie. That means nice food and nice walkies.
And maybe we'll even meet Kate an William! ...nah, probably not.

The Map


This is a photo of the map on the wall of my room in Barcelona. We´ve been playing with the pins for the last six months. They mark our planned itiniary. Here´s the meaning of the colours:
Red: Start and finish.
Yellow: The hubs on our RTW ticket.
Blue: Planned destinations.
White: Possibly maybe (yes, we exchanged the blue pin in Japan for a white one...)
Green: These are old dreams, probably not this trip, but, who knows...

Getting ready


semi-overcast 16 °C

So there we are, sitting on the sofa in our Barcelona apartment; organizing things, insurance, vaccination, deciding on stuff to take, stuff to leave home, booking a hotel for the first nights in Delhi. And already getting fed up with Indian bureaucracy...
AND setting up a blog.
Well then. Here goes the first entry...
