Yes I am 30 an the only ting that feels different is that I lost my mobile phone. I have mistakenly wrote 30 allready many times in questionaries where they ask my age so I suppose since Korea were I allready was 30 according to how they count it has been a soft landing and no crisis :D I arrived 5.2 here in India and Meet Walla and NAnna here. Unfortunally I have been sik the past days so that has slowd me down a bit, but I am getting better.
I didn't see much of Mumbai before we got on the train the 6.2 and took a 7-8h trainride to Pune. We were traveling in 2 class and it was a interesting experience to se the train travel in India. Towards the end of the trip I had feever again and I was geting a bit worried because I had a terrible cough... so the next morning in Pune I spent most of the time in the hospital. I got some more medicine and they made some test and the tests prooved me to be ok, so nothing worse than a troath inflamation.
Then it was time to cue fore some mor train tickets, but we only got them for the next leg, the trains here seam to be very full, all the trains from Goa to Mumbai for the next month is full, so I suppose bus or flying is our only option to get back. In the evening we got some time for sightseeing and we went for a castle ruine to se a light show...a bit boring but nice to see some of the city.
Next day we traveld onward to Kolhapur with train and it was a small cozy city and our hotel vas very nice. The food here is great even i we don't know what we order half of the time, but it has always been good.
After exploring some themples and the old city of Kolhapur we took a local bus that lookt very crap but was actually more confortable then the train. A ride that we tought would be 4,5 hours took 7 but it went over some pretty mountains and it was just great to sit by the window and se the beautiful views. There is so much happening here every where and you can just sit an look at the peoplehere for hours.
Yesterday night we came here to Panjim in Goa. It was the first time in days we saw other tourists and it seams like this place is from an other world allready starting with the Portugeese style buildings etc. So now it's time for some beach holiday and some relaxing in the smaller towns in North Goa.
30 is not so bad when you can just lay back and relax and enjoy the last week of sun and warmth before I head back to Europe.
