In the next 2 days I have quite a bit to do – I need to finish about a weeks worth of work, get out of jury service, buy some summer clothes, get my visa (oops left that a bit late) and some USDs, have an x-ray and MRI (hip still sore), have a massage, have dinner with the family, call my mum and get my eyebrows threaded. Sort out Christmas presents. I need to check the driver is going to pick me up from the airport, pay the bills and do my washing, pack my bags and GO! Geeze – I hope I haven’t forgotten anything.
Craziness! How did my life get so chaotic?!?
I’m really looking forward to the trip though… the plan is to go straight to Mysore from the airport (a 3hr drive), stay at a posh hotel and get some much needed sleep. I will spend a day chilling by the pool, will visit my teacher, catch up with friends and sort out somewhere to live.
After a few days at the hotel I will move into a suburb called Lakshmipurum, I hope I will stay at the same place as last time (see photos here). Then as of Sunday I will be participating in what can only be described as 4 weeks of yoga bootcamp. It doesn’t seem as scary this time because I know what to expect, but perhaps that makes me complacent about what is in store for me. Oh well, what will be will be. I think it’s going to be a very interesting, challenging and rewarding 4 weeks.
After Mysore I think I will need some real R&R; so the plan is to head to Goa for a few days of sun, sea and chill out (REST) before flying back to New Zealand in time for some real summer weather!
So… 3 sleeps to go! Watch this space. 🙂
