After much plotting and planning, the vacation I’ve been dreaming of for a whileâ€¦
My UK and French visas have arrived. The Swiss one is proving to be more problematic. In fact, they now want several supporting documents like who I am visiting in the UK. And how do I know someone in Switzerland! What the hell does it matter and what difference does it make to them?! Really frustrating. (Update: By some divine intervention, the Swiss visa is also through! Yippee!!). I also got an invite from a couple I met while skiing in Auli this year to visit them in Spain where they will be based for a while, so I am also planning to do a couple of days in Barcelona.
Anyway, if after all this, it does come through, I start with a visit to London where my sweet friend S lives.
After that, the plan is to get myself to Paris and spend some time walking around the city. I have 4 days and no plan as of now. And I don’t know anyone. So if any of you have any ideas and suggestions as to what I can see in the city (especially if you’ve been there), please leave them in the comments box. (Jag, thanks a lot for that long mail!).
I don’t have too much time in London. S is heavily pregnant so I doubt she will be able to show me around 🙂 But with London’s efficient tube and bus system, hopefully I shall be able to travel around with any problems.
And from there I go onto Scotland with my sister.
And then head back home in November.
So there, I have much packing to do. Final level 2B French exams on Sunday. And a heavy work schedule till next Tuesday. (Update: Work over! Exams disastrous :).
So I’m going to disappear for a while. However, I shall definitely surface wherever I get an internet connection and update.
Please, please do leave any suggestions you might have though! (Thanks folks for all the suggestions! My list is growing by the day).
