It’s happened, I’ve booked another trip to India next year and this time Sage will be coming along. Of course I have a few extra plans in the works. For literally decades, I’ve been dreaming of going on a bicycle tour within India. That idea even played a small part in my learning to speak Hindi.
And so, the time has likely come to load this bike and its panniers in to a box, put it in the belly of a jet and take it to India. Sage and I will spend a lot of time together, but a portion of the trip I will spend on my own, navigating from city to city. The route is as-yet undetermined but will probably be in the 1000-2000 kilometre range and if I can swing the time off, I will hopefully manage to extend things to just after Holi (I missed it last year).
This time I’ll hopefully be writing not only for myself, but pitching it to media outlets both in Canada and in India as well. I’d love to have the opportunity to share my taking my dream trip with a larger audience.
With that in mind – this is all new to me and if anyone has any good resources or references for pitching articles and the like, I’d love to see them, particularly in India. Meanwhile, don’t worry. You’ll be able to read about it one way or another!
