I have a bit of news I have been holding back on. The reason I have been kinda stressed out and not totally with it these last few weeks. I’m going on a little trip …
Back about 6 months ago, my boss traveled to India to train our coworkers there. She spent 6 weeks there! At the time, she had asked if I ever would be interested in going to India to train people. I said heck yeah! Whenever else would I get a chance to go overseas … to India … and not have to pay for it???
Well, it has been on the back burner all these months, and finally they gave my trip the green light. However, I will not just be going to India (oh my gosh – I’m going to India!!), I am also making a stop in London!
So basically it looks like this –
1. November 3 – fly from Colorado to London
2. November 7 – fly from London to Mumbai
3. November 17 – fly from Mumbai to London, 5 hour delay between flights, and then from London to Denver
So, I will be gone exactly 2 weeks. I can’t believe it!
I never have really traveled much of anywhere. Even growing up, we never went on vacation. The first traveling I really ever did was in college, when I was in our choir, and we would travel to a few different states on tour. The only place outside of the US I have been is Toronto, where I went on a work trip a few years back.
Honestly, I am more of a homebody. I love being home, and never really have been into vacations or seeing different places. Especially with our Sprucing up the Beehive project, I am loving our house, and I love being home! I promise to do some more posts on how our house is turning out – we just have to buy a few bigger ticket items, so I am trying to save some money!
Maybe to some people, this would be an ordinary thing – traveling overseas for work – but for me, this is HUGE! I don’t like going to restaurants I’ve never been to just because I might not be able to find the bathroom! Let alone, being in a totally different culture! I know I am going to have to rely on people to help me navigate through day to day living.
And, yes, it is only 2 weeks. I can do 2 weeks! I think?
I’m going to miss these 2 faces!
And I am worried about food… I’m planning to take some snacks, and hope that I do ok with food! I know I won’t be in control of what I will be eating.. I’ll just have to do my best! I am trying to stretch my diet a little bit, and see what my stomach can take, just because I don’t want to be sick all the time!
I’m hoping I can still do some posts while I am going, but we will see!
One thing I am excited about is that I will be in India during Diwali – Festival of the Lights – which is huge holdiday! I think it is kind of like their Christmas! I have always been so interested in different cultures and learning how people live, so I am really excited for this!
So that is what is going on with me. In less than a week, I will be in London! Eeeekkk!!
Any tips for traveling? Please – help a girl out!
