We had to be up and ready to leave at 4.30 this morning which everybody was thrilled about as you can imagine!

We're on our way to Goa which is our final stop so we're obviously planning to go out tonight but I'm wondering how long everyone will be able to stay awake! A power nap may be needed....

The ride to the train station was interesting to say the least - in a tuk tuk/jeep situation with no windows and the driver playing some seriously dodgy music which shouldn't be played at the best of times, let alone at that time of day!

It was a bumpy ride, I was glad just to reach the station in one piece. Saw some interesting sights on the way such as people squatting at the side of the road, I mean how hard is it to find a toilet seriously?!

The train we're on is pretty shit, I'm not gonna try and sugar coat it! We decided to wet wipe the seats and the amount of dirt we picked up was pretty goddamn disgusting! Was hoping to get some sleep but don't think I can face lying down to be honest. I've done a few train journeys in India now and this one is by far the worst!

It's so packed that there's 2 or 3 people to a bed but on the plus side we've had a ladyboy wandering up and down the carriage providing some entertainment!

I'm looking forward to seeing Goa, I think it's going to be very different and probably quite westernised from what I hear. At least if that's the case there's less chance of feeling like an exhibit on public display for everyone to gawp at and take pictures of which gets annoying after a while!

I have a feeling this is going to be a loooong train journey!
