I have piles of stuff just waiting to be squashed into my Rucksack, but I think the most important stuff is ready, yoga mat, first aid kit, mosquito net, Battenburg cake and Tea. Yes I know taking Tea to India is a bit like taking sand to The Sahara and that jar will only last me a week or so, but I have it on good authority that “Easy Day” will provide once the jar is empty!

Two more practices then off I go.

    I packed 80 tea bags. Is the blow up cat coming too?

    • Globie Says:

      Glad to hear there will be another Tea drinker around.

      My little niece gave me the blow up cat when my real one died. I may pack him, he could be a good mouse deterrent!

  2. lauramccormack Says:

    Bring the cat.

  3. lauramccormack Says:

    And an extra Battenburg.

    Travel safe, Kevin, and send my love to Tina when you go there for a meal. Also, my good friends Nicole and Alistair, Jose and Adam (these last two from my shala) should be there, give them all a hug from me.

    • Globie Says:

      Thanks V,

      Hope you are enjoying Bali.

      I have heard of Tina’s, will look it up when I get there & give her your love. Will look out for some more familiar faces.

    That cat is such a sweet gift.

    I’m loving that you’re taking tea to india too, made me smile. A very british thing to do!

    Hope you’re enjoying the preparations, all part of the fun x

    • Globie Says:

      Hi R,

      Not only Tea but I always take my tiny Travel Kettle, there are certain things I can’t exist without.

      The Cat has such a great expression, at least if he goes he wont take up much space.

      I seem to have been preparing for ages, but at least no last minute rushes

    I’m just stunned that you consider QT to be tea? I think indian teabags would be better than tea powder in all honesty!! Can’t believe it’s nearly here though, very exciting 🙂

    • Globie Says:

      Mel, QT is actually not bad and saves me having to go looking for Milk as soon as I get there. I will get some proper Tea once I’m settled.

      So near now

    Well, I took Earl Grey tea (Twinings!) to Bali with me! And it was a great idea! I’m back home now (with the world’s worst cold!) – have a wonderful wonderful time. Can’t wait to read your blog posts from Mysore … 🙂

      Hi Susie,

      Home already? Hope you feel better soon, I seem to pick up colds when I travel home. Glad you met V, Clare and Bibi

      Mysore is going to be an experience.

  8. Ursula Says:

    Globie, we travel all with you…..:)

    Good luck for you.

    Hi Kevin,
    I’ve been reading your blog for a while and now that you’re travelling to Mysore it’s finally time to comment: have a good journey and a good start here in India, enjoy your time at the shala. Reading about people coming here for practice always makes me a little envious since I live so close (in Bangalore) but cannot practice there. But of course I wish you all the best.

    • Globie Says:

      Hi Bettina

      Thanks for reading and now commenting.

      I am really looking forward to landing in Bangalore on Tuesday, even if it is at 3am, then heading east to Mysore as the sun rises.

      I hope you get to Mysore, to live so close and not go seems terrible

    Next time you come to Mysore you can come see me at my home there! Enjoy this great time~
