The visa process for Thailand was pretty much the opposite of the India visa process. As scary, intense, and stressful as that was, getting a visa for Thailand literally took 2 seconds. I was worried that I didn’t do everything or didn’t have all the forms because they asked for so little.
Ok, maybe not scary, but the application process for our India visa was definitely extremely intense. We’ve gotten a few of our visa’s already and typically, you fill out a pretty standard application, go to the consulate, wait in a long line, and then come back a week (or something) later to pick up your completed visa.
Not for India.
Well, we’re really getting close now. Just a little over a month until we leave for our trip and I’m getting so excited. For so long, it seemed so far away and now I’m finally starting to feel like it’s really happening. For the past couple of months, we haven’t had much to do in terms of planning, but now that it’s just over a month away, we’re getting back into planning mode with all of the final details of the trip.
I’m definitely taking these with me on my trek to Everest Base Camp!
“I think we like to complicate things when it is really quite simple; find what it is that makes you happy and who it is that makes you happy and you’re set. PROMISE!”
“If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It is lethal.”
We’ve been applying to a ton of jobs and this week were presented with two very interesting opportunities:
“The best day of your life is the one which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours – it’s an amazing journey – and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.”
Our RTW trip is fast approaching and as it gets closer and closer I find myself thinking a lot about my goals for the trip; what I want to accomplish and how I want to live my life over the next couple of years. I recently read an article about the power of saying yes. Unfortunately, I can’t remember where I found the article, but the gist of it was this: Saying no always leads to a dead end. Saying yes, on the other hand, always leads to something else.
