Here is the long promised itinerary for our trip. For those of u who are still contemplating joining us on part of our trip I have included the details of what we will be doing as far as we know it. The rest we are figuring out along the way
3rd Feb- 17th Feb 2012: India (probably 2 nights Mumbai just to get the feel of it and then 1 week in Mirik about 32 km from Darjeeling. Darjeeling is in the West Bengal province in the north of India and located close to the border of Nepal) Mirik is a little town with a big lake which has beautiful views of the Himalayas. We plan to sip tea, take walks, take a train which travels along the Himalayas). Wim gets to choose the second week, so we all know he will decide the night before what he wants to do...
