Claude – getting ready for India

It seems that I cannot pull myself to post every week these days. The thing is time really flies, especially as I am getting ready for a three week trip to India. I’m going with a group, of course, but that is one of the things that worries me as I am so used to doing what I like, when I like. Well, I suppose I’ll adjust when the time comes. We’re flying to Delhi and then travelling through Rajasthan and Nepal. I am both excited and a bit apprehensive. Am I not too old to do this? Well, I’ll let you know.
Meanwhile here’s my two weeks’ worth of elderexercise.

London do not climb sign

The way I feel when I get up in the morning, rusty! LOL

On the food front, I am having a really bad time. I crave sweet stuff, fat stuff, or should I say, any stuff? I haven’t managed to get back into reasonable eating ever since my trial experience.
Trying not to feel guilty 😀
Maybe after India, everything will fall back into place?

    Love the photo. I can understand that it would take a long time to reclaim your life after that long extensive period of jury work. Maybe India is just the right thing.

    Claude, you are definitely not too old to go an adventurous holiday and your fitness levels probably put you on a parr with much younger travellers. Have a great time.

    NOT too old! No way! You will be so interested that you probably won’t notice that rust…
    I sympathize on both the food front and the “getting along with a tour group” front. But again I think being in such a new place will distract you from food. (at least from snacky type food)
    I was very apprehensive when I went on a cruise to Canada where I had a roommate. But it all worked out beautifully, we got along well…and it was not too hard to avoid the people whose company was wearing. Hope it will be the same for you!
    Bon voyage!
