Finally, we are on our way!! Our bags are packed and we are just waiting for time to pass by, so that we can finally get started on this journey! In just a few hours, we will be off to the airport, and at 06:40 CEST our plane is scheduled to take off. I am getting more and more stoked by the minute by the fact that we are actually going! It hasn’t sunk in properly yet and I don’t have any kind of pre-travel jitters, but that is normal. It is going to be so exciting to see India, all the people, the colours, the food and culture. This is going to be the best trip ever!
This is going to be a trip full of firsts, and I’m looking forward to every single bit of it. I have been practicing taking videos and I feel more confident than ever that I’ll be able to do a good job documenting everything, but only time will tell how much I’m actually going to be able to record. I hope to be able to post the first travel update already on Saturday, as we are going to be traveling the whole Friday long. Also, because I love languages and am learning Hindi, I am really looking forward to practicing and improving my Hindi as well! I expect to be able to comprehend and especially speak Hindi better after this trip.

Yesterday at the gym was awesome! I had an instructor who showed me exactly what to do and what machines to use. I’m really happy about that. And what’s more is that the schedule that I had made for myself was according to that instructor very well made. So we used my schedule instead of anything that they had pre-made at the gym. So I will continue using the schedule that I made, but we added some leg exercises too, which will be great. I’m really looking forward to the first proper workout session with this schedule on Saturday. I only have to add the machine names, what muscles are used and then enter weight and how many reps I do per machine. Simple and awesome.
Work is going good too. I have gotten new tasks and I’m really enjoying myself. I have moved my desk from the bottom floor to the top floor now also, so I’m sitting a lot closer to my boss. I am probably going to be in charge of a few more things than I am at the moment, and I’ve started printing customer lists also. There are things I have to learn, but that just makes it more interesting. I love my job!
Yesterday I was supposed to go and sing karaoke with a few friends, but my girlfriend Mehek had gotten sick, so I had to go home to take care of her. And today we went to the pharmacy together to get her some cough medicine, so hopefully she’ll be feeling a lot better very soon. Now I’m just looking forward to helping her get better and cheer her up. Being sick sucks! *sends Mehek loads of love*
Another reason I’m looking forward to going to the gym on Saturday is because dad has promised he’ll come along! That’s going to be a lot of fun, I’m sure. I really have started caring more about my health, which was about time. I really want to get a good physique so that I can do whatever I want whenever I want to. Anyways, that will come. I’m just very happy that I’ve gotten started now.
I have been thinking a bit about getting a few tests done. Sort of like DNA tests or something like that, so that I know more about myself. To see if I’m resistant to any diseases and other things, as well as check body fat percentage and bone density and things like that. I have always liked collecting data, but I haven’t really collected that much data about myself. I don’t know why, but now I am really wanting to do such things.
