Travel Itinerary

I’ll be in India for a friend’s wedding from tomorrow for a week. I’m flying into Mumbai (Bombay) on Thursday and arriving in the evening. I’ll then have a day in the city before I get on another plane to Ahmedabad to meet Hetal and his family for the ceremony on Sunday. All told, I am excited about my first visit to Asia, but I’m a little apprehensive of using the Internet as a guage of local hotels so I’ve defaulted back to booking with Best Western. Maybe not the best, but at least I know roughly what I’m paying for when I hand over my credit card information. In case of incident (did you wonder why I post this information? that’s the reason folks), here’s my travel itinerary:

* THU13: London Heathrow (LHR) -> Paris Charles De Gaulle (CDG) - Air France AF 2471
* THU13: Paris Charles De Gaulle (CDG) -> Chhatrapati Shivaji (BOM) - Air France AF 134
* THU13: Staying at Best Western Emerald in Bombay (2 nights) - +91-22-26611150
* SAT15: Chhatrapati Shivaji (BOM) -> Ahmedabad (AMD) - Indian Airlines 603
* SAT15: Staying with friends in Ahmedabad (4 nights)
* TUE18: Ahmedabad (AMD) -> Chhatrapati Shivaji (BOM) - Indian Airlines 609
* TUE18: Will book based on the previous Best Western experience.
* FRI21: Chhatrapati Shivaji (BOM) -> Paris Charles De Gaulle (CDG) - Air France AF 135
* FRI21: Paris Charles De Gaulle (CDG) -> London Heathrow (LHR) - Air France AF 1270

I’m still looking into local Linux related events but I’ll mostly be doing touristy stuff. There was a plan to visit some other folks involved with one of the magazines, but that’s not happening since the logistics don’t work. I’m not going to Goa either and will spend some of the time I’m over there catching up on deadlines which are creeping up on me. Should loudly if you want me.
