Can you tell by the title of my post how excited we are? We are really looking forward to this trip. Our brother in law who was born in the Punjab had to fly back to India this week as his father who still lives in India has become ill. We will probably catch up with him when we are in India to see how he is doing but we are hoping and praying for the best for his Dad. Our brother in law gave us some great contacts for accommodation in Agra and Jaipur (family and friends of his) so we got some good discounts. Personally I find it unbelievable that we are paying under $50 per night for a gorgeous looking hotel (complete with pool) in Jaipur including buffet breakfast each day. It is clearly very expensive to live in Australia when you compare our hotel prices to that.
We are trying to travel light during our trip so not taking the laptop and I will have to cope with 3 pairs of shoes only. Those who know me know how I love my shoes so to be able to keep my shoe selection down to 3 will be a challenge. However, our lonely planet guide book has already shown to me the locations of some reputable leather and shoe shops. I think I will end up coping!
So we are treating this like a real holiday as the first 8 days will just be sightseeing in Agra and Jaipur for us and then we come back to Delhi for the treatment appointments and legal meetings. We both cant wait to meet Dr Shivani and the SCI team and to watch them create some magic in their miracle baby making.
