Bought the tickets!

We are going. It's official, India here we come. I agreed to 3 weeks, with the understanding that we will pay the $200 per ticket if I want to come back earlier. AC said I can not get off the plane in India and say I want to go home. I have to give it some time. I really don't like to be away from home. I hope I do ok. I feel a little better about it since talking to my brother-in-law. He goes to India every 2 years or so, so he knows what it is like. I tried not to sound like a spoiled brat, but quizzed him about his aunt & uncles home that we will be staying in for some of the time.

I am trying to be positive, so here are the positives:
  • Electricity
  • Only the aunt & uncle live in the home
  • they have 3 bedrooms with AIR conditioning!! - Which means I will be able to talk about the family everyday, because we will have some privacy!! Like it or not, a spouse needs some time to complain about the other spouses family:)
  • Since I sleep with a noise maker at night, I should be fine listening to the air conditioner.
  • Toilet that flushes
  • running water - should be able to shower daily

So far looking forward to the trip. Any advice, please leave comments.

No advice, but it sounds so exciting! I bet you'll love it! I went to Athens, Greece back in 1983 & was really nervous about that, but I'm so glad that I had that opportunity. You'll be just fine & I can't wait to see all the pics you take :)

What an exciting adventure! I'm not much for being away from home and I would be skeptical also but I bet it will be a very exciting trip!

Wow! I hope you have a wonderful time when you go!

It sounds like you have an exciting adventure planned. And it sounds like his aunt and uncle have a nice house. I think you will have fun!

I think it will be a fabulous adventure. If you lower your expectations and just think of it as learning experience, you should be fine! I would love to go!

Sounds like an interesting trip. You might be suprised by it. I was terrified of going to England and being away from my family and the new foods. Once I was there I really enjoyed it. I would not mind moving over there. I hope you have fun planning this trip. My biggest issue was the whole packing thing. Have Fun..Keep us posted.

I bet you will have a fabulous time. I can relate about being away from home though - when I go to my MIL's for more than 2 hours I have just accepted that anti-anxiety medication is a wonderful thing that can help me get through it :)

How exciting! And, I'm laughing at your list because those would be some of my worries too. Heck, I don't even want to camp out b/c I love my shower & toilet (well, when it's not in the tub LOL!). I bet you'll have so much fun that those 3wks will fly by and you'll be home before you know it. :)
