    Bye, India, you were amazing!

    January 6 in India ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Well, this is it. Again the time to say goodbye. Another awesome trip came to an end.
    India is a wonderful place. Far more than I expected. It's not just masses of people. It's not that hard or scary or anything. It takes some time to getting used to. But once you embrace it's vibe you can really enjoy it. It has soooo much to offer, beautiful nature, culture, temples, warm and nice people, amazing food (which we had way too much), weird and funny things,... It was everything I've hoped for - seeing impressive Taj Mahal, wondered around great Varanasi, shopped in Pushkar, seen huge castles in Jaipur, felt like being on another planet in Hampi and an amazing psytrance New Year's party in Goa. I love India :)
    A trip wouldn't have been the same without the company of Mara, who just became a backpacker a embraced India like a pro! Also Matjaž and Mateja, my old travel companions! Thank you all for all the amazing times, teas, laughter, support, garlic naans and whatnot ❤️

    Mt. Everest

    April 28, 2019 in India ⋅ 🌫 36 °C

    We arrived later in Delhi at 1:30 since we couldn’t overfly Pakistan and had 1:15h longer. We had to go through customs and get our bag. We had again a big laugh because they looked as they were dragged through dirt. Well, yellow is a heikle color, right? After getting our visas for an hour stay at the airport if Delhi we were picked up by a very friendly guy, could relax for an hour in a lounge. That was a bizarre thing. There was also a little problem with me having Müller in the passport but Mueller on the visa for Bhutan. It is often a reason to discuss. But they let me in. If you are not Indian you need a Visa for Bhutan. Like that they control tourism. Last year 200’000 people visited that country, only 75’000 of them not Indian. They have an open border with India. We were advised to take seats on the left side to fly from Delhi to Paro because it was supposed to be the most beautiful flight. And it was. After again passing through security which was just weird being checked from a woman in something like a changing room - anyway, Lilian and me again laughed tears. We successfully boarded the plane run by Drukair. We first flew to Kathmandu getting closer and closer to the Himalayan giants. We saw approximately 5 Mt. Everests, since all of them very big but geographically it couldn’t be him/her/it yet. The French guy next to me didn’t have any idea and therefor no help in the Everest-confusion but was putting his camera to the window and excused himself all the time while doing it. So at one point I asked him if I could take the pictures so he wouldn’t lean over me all the time and I wouldn’t have to smell his bad breath. We had a quick stop in the capital of Nepal and then the mountain show really started. And there was Mt. Everest! At least I think the mountain on the picture is the real one. And if not, it is a pretty one at least so do not complain. It was a really nice flight and after a quite adventurous landing approach to Paro gliding through the valley we touched ground in Bhutan. Oh it smelled already very nice, fresh and spicy when leaving the plane (and the French guy). We were picked up by our guide, 25year old Tenzin dressed in the traditional cloth Gho and our driver Jimmy. We went right away to a temple. The temple has been built in the 7th century and is one of the oldest in Bhutan. The Bhutanese are very fond of nice clothes and it is advised to put on a nice blouse while visiting those holy sites. Well. I was still in my training trousers and I wasn’t at all wearing something just slightly similar and chic to a blouse. Let alone my fancy pink socks. You visit temples always without shoes. I felt a bit uncomfortable like I would not respecting their wishes on holy places. Luckily it didn’t seem a problem though. After that we went for a delicious lunch. Food is delicious here. I just gonna mention it once. It is also aspargus season. They are way thinner then ours and just yummy. After that we checked in in our hotel which was once a palace. I am always surprised when staying at such beautiful places because I just don’t expect it. What a view on the valley. Splendid. We were picked up in the afternoon for a walk in the town. The town is mostly a mainstreet and lives on tourism. They made the houses look pretty in the 80ies. We had something like the coffee number 10 and visited the local fruit and vegetable market. We came the way back to the hotel by foot, climbing up the little hill to see how we were doing at 2300m altitude and I went straight for a nap since I just couldn’t think straight due to exhaustion. Diner was splendid/delicious/marvelous, take the superlative you want, especially the chicken with cashew sauce, in a roundish restaurant with a view on the Dzhong, which we would visit the next day. Wonderful.Read more

    What a dreadful airport lounge

    June 1, 2019 in India ⋅ ☀️ 39 °C

    Whoa this Delhi Airport lounge is dreadful. It has hardly any seats, the food is average except the chicken noodle soup which is quite nice. The noise from jackhammers working on airport shop upgrades is deafening, not what you need when sitting in an overcrowded lounge which has taken 2 hours to finally get Wi-Fi.Read more

    April 7, 2017 in India ⋅ 🌫 30 °C

    My day started early midnight to be exact, where in a plane I was trying to sleep with no luck. We arrived in Delhi at 3 o'clock in the morning to catch yet another flight to Kaipur. Everyone was shattered as we had all nearly stayed up for 24 hours, but the fun didn't end there we were treated to a tour, where I didn't fall asleep on the coach, and a training session, where I didnt fall asleep on the coach!!Read more

    Dehli Airport und Abzocke, Teil eins

    March 30, 2019 in India ⋅ ⛅ 36 °C

    Erste Eindrücke beim Aussteigen aus dem Flugzeug:
    Es ist heiss, alle haben es eilig (da nützt auch der Befehlston des Steward nichts), es hat Smog und Curryduft liegt in der Luft. Und wie um alles in der Welt schaffen es die Abholer, direkt an der Gangway aufzutauchen?
    Für uns steht der übliche Postenlauf an:
    - Toilette (die asiatische Hock-Variante hat uns wieder)
    - Visa (dank e-Visa ganz einfach und unspektakulär)
    - Geld wechseln (hurra, sie nehmen Schweizer Franken)
    - SIM-Prepaid besorgen (auch ganz unspektakulär, da sehr einfach. 10 GB für 11 CHF)
    - Getränke kaufen (klappt auch prima, ist bei 40 Grad auch notwendig)

    Beim Kauf des Metro-Token fallen wir dann schon das erste Mal rein (und wir sind noch nicht mal zwei Stunden in Indien). Der Token-Verkäufer „vergisst“ uns das Wechselgeld heraus zu geben und wir merken erst in der Metro, dass wir statt 120 ganze 220 Rupien bezahlt haben. Naja, sind 1,20 CHF Unterschied, nervt aber trotzdem für 30 Sekunden.

    Third Leg

    April 13, 2017 in India ⋅ ☀️ 36 °C

    Well we made it to Delhi but we won't be leaving the airport as we catch our plane to Kathmandu in about 30 minutes.

    Our flight from London was very comfortable - they actually gave us pyjamas to change into! I slept like a baby but I have no idea for how long. We've gone through many time zones so my poor body has no idea what's going on. It doesn't matter, I'll get sorted out in Kathmandu as we have three days before our hike.

    I heard from Elizabeth and Reig, our intrepid travelling partners. Their flight was cancelled due to mechanical problems. Qatar Air put them up in a hotel in Philadelphia for the night and they will hopefully be flying out today at the same time as their original flight. They will arrive in Kathmandu a day late but Jon purposely scheduled the extra days before our hike for just such hiccups!

    Once again, lame pictures but I hope they improve.

    Indira Gandhi International Airport

    April 12, 2019 in India ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Der Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI) (IATA-Code: DEL; ICAO-Code: VIDP) ist ein internationaler Verkehrsflughafen rund 16 Kilometer südwestlich der indischen Hauptstadt Neu-Delhi.

    Der 226 Meter hoch gelegene Flughafen verfügt über drei Terminals und drei Start-/Landebahnen: Terminal 1 ist der ehemalige Palam International Airport, das für den nationalen Flugverkehr verwendet wird. Terminal 2 und vor allem das neue Terminal 3 sind für internationale Flüge vorgesehen. Als hauptsächliche Start-/Landebahn wird 10/28 verwendet.
    Jährlich werden zurzeit mehr als 63 Millionen überwiegend inländische Ziele ansteuernde Fluggäste abgefertigt, damit hat Neu-Delhi den bisherigen Landesführer Flughafen Mumbaiübertroffen.
    Der Flughafen dient als Drehkreuz für zahlreiche indische Fluggesellschaften wie SpiceJet, Alliance Airund IndiGo Airlines. Air India und Jet Airwaysverwenden den Flughafen als Zweit-Drehkreuz neben dem mehr international angesteuerten Flughafen Mumbai.
    Zu den Commonwealth Games 2010 wurde der Flughafen an das Netz der Metro Delhiangeschlossen.
