Here I come, India!

This is it!

In a few hours, I will be boarding my flight to India. I’m excited, yet at the same time anxious for all the new experiences!

There’s a certain tinge of sadness creeping in my body, I must admit. Though this isn’t the first time I’m leaving the country for a couple of months, this is the first time I’ll have no family with me. As I woke up today, I couldn’t believe that time flew by, and that, in fact, today I’m leaving.

After saying goodbye to the people I left behind, I’m starting to prepare myself for the new adventure. Here are some of the things I want to do in Southern India:

1. See a tea plantation

2. Drink chai tea

3. Ride a train

4. Attend a festival

5. Eat curry

6. Do yoga

7. Learn 10 everyday phrases in the local language

8. Visit a Hindu temple

9. Walk around Bangalore

10. Spend a day in Mysore

Surely, there will be ups and downs, but this definitely will be an unforgettable experience.

Goodbye for now, Manila. See you in six weeks! 🙂
