if the knees and lungs allow

Monday, April 23, 2012

With still six months to go before the trip I find myself already preoccupied with travel preparations.  There are just so many things to put in order for a two-country, three-week itinerary – financial considerations, places to visit, accommodation and train and bus schedules. The plan includes staying in far-flung Himachal Pradesh, the high-altitude ranges that shelter the northern reaches of India followed by the snowy peaks of Annapurna.  And I am totally agog over everything.  I just hope the powers that be grant me a visa to India. If they don’t, going straight to Nepal doesn’t sound like such a bad idea. It will even give us time to do the entire Circuit, if the knees and lungs allow.

I'm pretty certain you'll have found this out already, Filipinos can get a visa-upon-arrival in India. It's a pretty good indication they're more 'welcoming' of visitors from the Philippines : )

p.s. though this may sound racist, be warned of "touchy hands" especially in public places and trains.
