Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in India on Wednesday, 5th-October-2016. In Mumbai. It was a good flight over last night, and the nine-hour flight time passed really quickly.
I’d looked at the weather forecast for Mumbai when I was waiting at Heathrow, and it really wasn’t good. It seems as though the monsoon season has returned! Which is really not what I wanted. I came here because it’s not meant to rain! Sure enough, as we were coming in to land, it was pouring with rain outside!
I Don’t Like Change
I was really disappointed when I disembarked the aeroplane the whole place had changed completely! Gone was the hustle and bustle and the long queues that I had when I was here 5 years ago! I seemed to remember having to queue for what felt like an eternity last time, and it was in complete chaos. This time it was a very slick operation and I was outside the airport within about 45 minutes of landing!
I was really sad and disappointed, the sheer chaos of India is one of its charms surely they had not lost that! Luckily they hadn’t, and as soon as I was away from the airport, the normal chaos returned, and India was how I remembered it! Apparently, it’s a new airport that opened a few years ago which would explain it all.
After checking into my hotel I spent the afternoon putting my bike back together and trying to sort out some technical issues with my phone and also social media! These things always seem to happen when I’m travelling!
