Sep 10, 2004 - Manali - Delhi

Well, the bus journey started off ok. But there were a group of young Indian men who were on a lads holiday. Two of them study at Birmingham and the others had good jobs and could all speak English perfectly. They were really entertaining and I was really enjoying myself at first, everybody on the bus was joining in the conversation, and they were singing indian songs because I said I liked music! When it got to about 12 'o' clock though I was so tired, and couldn't get comfortable or sleep, and the others wouldn't shut up! So I hardly...

Gemma's RTW trip

Aug 22, 2004 - Delhi

We have arrived safely in Delhi. The flight was fairly uneventful but the ride in from the airport was exciting. Ezra saw his first elephant walking along beside the highway and there are cows everywhere. The traffic was more exciting than a Disneyland rollercoaster. It is busy and dirty but exciting. MAE

Jul 29, 2004 - Farewell Thailand... Hello India!

Hello from India! We made it safely to New Delhi last night. Today was a bit of exploring and making sure to jump right into the amazing Indian food. We went to a Bollywood film that had lots of action with a few flashy musical numbers thrown in. Though we didn't understand the language... it was an interesting time. Tomorrow we are taking a tour of New Delhi and then we hop on a bus for a 16 hour trek north to Dharamsala. India is absolutely incredible... We have more to say about Thailand and lots more photos to share... they will come...

Jun 5, 2004 - My hotel.

My hotel was located in one of the busiest market places in Delhi. Going outside was a bit like steping into a pool of humanity. People hawking stuff in every square foot of space. Being a westerner automatically makes you an atractive target. It took a while to get used to.

May 24, 2004 - Delhi again

Hot and boring third time round. In 10 days managed to achieve 2 things - obtaining my Pakistan visa, and receiving my bike. Both were far more effort than they should have been. Arrived at the foreign post office at 11am to pick up my tent. Eventually at 14.00 someone decided so see me, then decided that someone else would be having lunch, so at 14.30 we went to see the parcels. I was surprised to see that my bike was there too. Apparently that had arrived that day. Everyone was very helpful as we went through the parcels and I answered a...

Genty's Asia - 2004

Apr 29, 2004 - Alicia Demands a Recount

Greetings! This is the first time in 2 weeks that I have returned from our scavenges before midnight and therefore able to write down some thoughts on this travel extravaganza. As you read in my first update on April 16th, we headed that night to Hong Kong. We arrived at the airport and our seats had not been reserved and therefore all of us were condemned to the middle seats, in coach, for the 15 hour flight. You can imagine my state of mind. All I could think about was that I wasn't going to get a wink of sleep and I'd be worthless for...

Apr 19, 2004 - Delhi

We arrived in Delhi at 08:00 in the morning after a not so bad train journey. It was a total of 34 hours, and boy am I glad we stumped up the extra money to pay for 2 tier air conditioning. We both managed to get quite a lot of sleep considering and quite a bit of reading done as well. We also had the company of an Indian named Danjit Singh who talked quite a lot, and was nice, but unfortunately farted quite badly, frequently, and also the miraculous 'jumping boy' called Shera who was a 4 year old amusement throughout the journrey. All our...

Jan 6, 2004 - Delhi

We arrived at Delhi at around 5:00 in the evening and came to the house of a family friend where we were supposed to spend one night before heading off on our own again. However, due to a family emergency, they had to leave very early the next morning. We decided it would be easier for everyone if we left later that night. We had a quick dinner and then set off for downtown Delhi at 10:00pm in search of a place to stay. Please note, never do this. We awoke in the morning and immediately found a better place to stay just down the street....

World Trip 03/04

Dec 30, 2003 - First 2 days in Delhi

December 30, 2003 Well I finally arrived in Delhi yesterday morning at 00.30 and had no trouble getting my luggage and going through customs. I did get a stamp in my new passport, the first one. No-one can see that I flew via Holland. This city still baffles me - the traffic is incredibile - how we ever get to our destination without getting injured or killed is beyound me. You must be a complere fatalist or you would probably have a heat attack every time you go by car, richshaw or bicycle. I wouldn't dare driveon my own here not even a...

Nov 24, 2003 - Greetings from Delhi

Hello everyone !!! The flight was great - special thanks to Johnny Wilkinson and to the air stewardess who forgot to charge us for the champagne. We have started getting used to life in India. The first challenge is to cross the road when there is no highway code let alone green cross code. Everyone uses their horns when driving for everything and we even saw a family of 5 riding one moped !! The second challenge is to be politely rude to the touts - Denis has decided to pretend to be German if he is asked to have his shoes shined one more...

Sep 20, 2002 - Delhi

Me acuerdo de que llegué a la ciudad capital, punto final de mi recorrido por los gigantes de Asia, con la salida del sol y en autobús. Hice visita a dos sitios patrimonio mundial: Tumba de Humayun y el Fuerte Rojo, además a la Mezquita Jama, al monumento y museo de Gandhi, y caminé los 3 km desde el Indian Gate hasta el Rashtrapati Bhavan después de haber caminado todo un día. Esta vez sí tuve la suerte de Polo quien -muchos no lo saben- volvió de su viaje a China vía... qué más... ¡la India!
