Last stop - better than expected!

A travel blog entry by lyndsey-martin


... ugly, has excellent infrastructure and is generally in pretty good nick, compared to other Indian cities. We flew at 10:30pm, after a predictably laboured and repetitive departure protocol with Indian customs. We also had time, especially me, for a last minute grumble, about India - the fact that you are not allowed to leave the country with any Rupees.

Flew from Goa to Chennai

A travel blog entry by sammyjade92

The problem is you ...

Bye bye India!

A travel blog entry by kenanddonna2005


... so I jumped at the chance to get it sorted. It took a while to get the locals to confirm where an ear doctor was located and, of course, to negotiate a tuk tuk price, but we got there with relatively little ease in Indian terms. We were both pleasantly surprised that the doctor was very professional. We were half expecting a bloke at the side of the road with a pointy stick giving it a go (as we’d seen this previously) but no, a nice lady with ...
