Indeed I have felt this before!

 Mr Evans is once again leaving me to it and jumping on a jet plane and  heading on. No doubt the flight will once again have chilled wine and decent in flight movies. He flies back to Delhi this morning, then tomorrow, back to the UK and onwards to his retirement home by the sea.

Hope you have a safe trip chap and please don't worry about me - I'll soldier on on my own and will be fine. Please don't lose sleep over abandoning me once again!

 I'm hoping his bike's collected this morning and as checkout is at midday I'll aim to leave this unusual taste of luxury at 11.59.59

My plan has changed (as always) and before heading south thought I'd pop north to darjeiling for a nice cup of tea  ;-)

I'm not sure when I'll next have the opportunity to visit the far north / east so think I'll make the most of it.

During the ride here I calculated the mighty impulses mpg and thinking I'd made a mistake have done it on two more occasions.

The first was 445.9 kms to 7.3 litres of fuel - 172.5 mpg or 61 kmpl

2nd 450 kms to 7.2 litres of fuel - 176.1 mpg 

3rd 503 kms to 8.63litres of fuel - 164.3 mpg

I know that the bikes doing really well on fuel but either my calculation is wrong, I'm riding very economically or that's amazing!!

At that rate my budget might just stretch to a further night of luxury down south!


Ok, Mr Evans is off in his taxi, the bike's still here and I'm  just back from my last swim and jacuzzi session. Time to pack up and start riding north! The excellent news though is that Mr Evans has kindly donated an Indian guide book and map for my onward travels as unsurprisingly I didn't have one!

More tea vicar -I'm off to darjeiling - ye ha  ;-)
