Flying Out Today

Finally singing: “I’m leaving, on a jet plane…”

After a delay of several days due to airline ticket changes I am finally flying out today to India.  I left home this morning at 6 am and flew to LAX where I am writing this entry from the International Terminal waiting at the gate for the departing flight to Hong Kong where I will have about a 2 hour layover and connection to India.

I’ll arrive at just after midnight local time in India and have spent more than 28 hours traveling.  I’m excited to meet the people of India and experience the culture.  I’m told there is an incredible botanical garden near where I will be staying and those of you that know me know well I can’t resist photographing in a botanical garden.

Today I finished my eVisa Application and Bought Travel Insurance

Today the trip has really started to become real.  I finished my eVisa application and bought my travel insurance.  I researched flight times and determined the the total flight time to India is 28 hours with layovers in either LA or Chicago and London.

There is a sense of excitement mixed with serenity.  I’m eager to see what plans have been laid for me, but amazingly have been granted an unusual peace and calm I normally don’t have when coming up on a new adventure.

Just a few short days to get the last few things done before departure.
