Gone Wandering

Tomorrow I leave for two weeks in India and for some strange and unusual reason my bag is packed, fridge is empty except for milk and a mooncake (don’t ask), and my bedroom is moderately tidy. Furthermore, there is a novel on my hard drive, a suitcase full of books and gifts (the ones that weren’t edible) sitting in the corner waiting for when I turn back to the airport and jet off to Australia, and the strange sensation that everything is going to be fine.

I even went grocery shopping yesterday and got all three things on my list.

Fortunately, I haven’t had to put my Zombie Apocalypse Survival Plan into action.

I have spent the past week feeling terribly anxious and experiencing feelings of all-round blegh. While people are asking me if I’m excited about the holidays, I’m staring blankly at them trying to remember if I put pants on before I left the house and not wanting to check in case I haven’t – ignorance is bliss.

That feeling has passed. I now have the nervous thrill of pending adventure sitting in my stomach, and the next 48 hours will pass quickly – I’m working today and tomorrow, so the time will surely twirl past. In 48 hours I will be in Delhi – hopefully checked into my hotel and sound asleep. Not that glamorous, but it will get better!

See you in two weeks!

  1. Being Indian myself, can’t wait to hear about your adventures in India!! And you were in Delhi, which has been in the news recently for a horrendously tragic event 😦 I hope you had a safe, enjoyable trip πŸ™‚

    • Oh, I had wonderful adventures! Fortunately it was a safe and enjoyable trip (and many other adjectives), though I’ve been following the recent news with a very heavy heart. I get very upset when horrible things happen in places I love.

      • I’m glad you liked it πŸ™‚ I love my country although there are days when I can’t for the life of me imagine why!! The best way I can explain is…it’s the way it gets under your skin and in your face…impossible to ignore or remain indifferent. It’s almost like it demands a reaction…good or bad isn’t important!

        Look forward to reading your adventures and the various adjectives πŸ˜‰
