I’ll let you all into a little secret…I’m going to India today! Woo hoo yeah! Don’t tell anyone, but I finally got my visa through at the eleventh hour (praise God!) and so its finally setting in that in a few hours I will be in a plane above the clouds trying to ease the boredom of a 13hr journey. Who cares my visa came!!! It feels completely surreal I have no time to even sort of prepare myself so it is gonna be interesting to say the least. For those who have not heard the trials and tribulations huuu…let me recap. I promise not to exaggerate. I would never do such a thing
I thought it would be a simple affair. Go to london, get visa, go home. Jenna and I both applied for a tourist visa so I thought it would be quick and easy. But unfortunately after waiting ages, I got asked a million questions about where I would be going, with what business and with what purpose. It felt as though they thought me a underground criminal mastermind, which if I were would be cool because I could just intimidate people into submission, but alas its just little old me.
I left the high commission empty handed and somewhat perplexed about what to do. The guy at the counter for some reason unknown to me wanted me to send some proof of what I’d be doing which is just visiting India.
But obviously I didn’t have time for that, and should really have been one of the stream of people getting their passports blindly stamped and ripped off of 30 quid. I wouldn’t have minded that. Well in the end I applied through my dad’s travel agent ‘friend’ who is really a sleazy old man in a small office in east london sporting aviators and an unbuttoned shirt like that guy in the A team .
Well whatever I got my visa. #hallelujah!#
So long, I must be off… a plane awaits!
