Winding down the year

Is 2013 really almost over?  In the last week or so, I’ve been quite busy networking with some new folks, catching up with the old, and preparing for our trip to India. Not surprisingly, I’ve even planned out our 2014 trips already. Hubs and I will be spending Christmas and New Years in India this year. Since 2009, we’ve been away for every Christmas except last year because of the obvious and our pack out was happening on Boxing day. I was determined to stay put in Vienna for our first Christmas abroad, but a friend invited us to his wedding and we just couldn’t pass it up.

India was never on my travel list of must-dos. It never appealed to me. For the first time, I’m going somewhere that is really foreign to me.  I’m going to a wedding and will get to see the Taj Mahal. Everything else will be an adventure to say the least. I’m excited that I will experience getting a Sari custom fitted, witness a traditional wedding, and also seeing some of the famous sights of India. But I’m also scared of the unknown. So, maybe, the most foreign and unknowing trip will be the most unforgettable.

Stayed tuned for blog posts on India in the new year.
