Made it To Mumbai (April 2012)

Flights went very smooth. Left on Sunday night at 1030pm and landed in Mumbai at 1230am on Tuesday morning. Time diff with NY is 9.5 hours so I think it was about 16 hours of travel.

Touching down in India was very thrilling. Despite the long haul I was beaming at 130am as I met my hotel driver with a big smile. Felt comforting seeing my name “Mr. Janelle Sterling” (yep Mr.) as I exited immigration.

The warm air of Mumbai hit me stepping out of the airport. Since it was so early in the morning not much was going on in the city so it was a quick ride to my hotel, the President, Mumbai – IHCL SeleQtions.

The ride from the airport ot hotel took about 40 mins.

It’s was a splurge for my first few nights but I ended up saving money in other towns I later visited in southern India where I’d stay on a house boat and visited a surf ashram.
