I don’t regret canceling our trip to China because of my illness. The more I read about the air pollution in Beijing and Shanghai, the less I want to go there. Now that my health has improved, however, I do yearn to get off this rock in the Pacific and go somewhere.
Earlier this year, I mentioned that we might staycation at the Aulani resort in Ko Olina for a few days. That seems so tame, though. I would rather get on a jet and experience the thrill of lift-off and flying above the clouds.
Thus, David and I have decided to travel to India with a tour group during the first 2 weeks in November. The itinerary includes the following sites: Delhi, Chandni Chowk, Jaipur, Agra, Sarnath, Varanasi, Taj Mahal. Explore the Agra Fort, Presidential and City Palace, the Ganges River, and the Taj Mahal. Visit the India Gate, Qutub Minar, and Humayun’s tomb. Experience the colorful culture, magnificent monuments, and colonial past.
I don’t think we can deviate from this itinerary. Hopefully, my friends in India can join us at one of these locations and we can visit with each other over dinner (our treat).
We are going to mail our deposit to the travel agency shortly. The balance is due August 15, and that is also when we will submit our passports to acquire visas to India.
To say we are very excited would be an understatement. India, here we come!
