Journey to India 1 : A Whole New World

8:45:00 AM

Namastay dear readers!!

This year's travels has been largely unexpected. If you follow my Instagram you would probably have known that I was in India for the past 7 days through my #rnadiaindia hashtag. 

A few days in India has been an eye opening experience for me, I learned so much in those 7 days. India is incredible: it is a place with so much character and it feels like I was in a different world. It changes my perspectives on a whole new level.

I've missed blogging! I didn't bring my laptop to India and the trip to India has been really hectic so I did not have time to blog over there. It wasn't easy for me to get a sim card and wifi too so I only managed to update what's happening in India on my IG through tethering with others who managed to get internet on their mobile phones.  

Oh yeah, I did the roaming thing and forgot to take the package this time around and was charged a bomb. So that's tip #1 when you go to India: If you're roaming, subscribe to the daily internet package.

Anyway, I was invited to join a trip to India with other delegates for a buying mission. We went to Mumbai, Ahmadebad and Surat.  It wasn't planned months before or anything. I only got to know about one week before the trip. The week before that was just really hectic as I had to settle a lot of my pending work in Malaysia and also had to squeeze in-between applying for my Indian Visa and generally prepare for the trip.

Before I start on my Journey to India series, I will leave you with some photos of me travelling from Malaysia to India in my comfiest outfit ever, the EDITH Detachable Jumpsuit. Since I knew it was going to be a little cold during the flight which took almost 6 hours, I wore a maroon jacket just to keep me warm. It is pretty lightweight though.

Thank God I decided to do that because the flight itself was okay, but when I arrived, the weather in India was really quite cold as it was winter over there. Sometimes when I am just so used to Malaysia's summer/rain all year round weather I forgot that there are other parts all over the world that experiences the whole 4 seasons thingy.

 I can't wait to share all of my experiences in India. But, then again, I haven't even shared my experiences travelling to China in the middle of this year!

I am really thankful for the opportunities to travel this year. I thank Allah for the rezeki and for granting me the health and energy to travel in 2014. Alhamdulillah.
