There was two in the bed and the little one said " I wouldn't like to do this with a stranger" - night bus

 

After three months in Windy we're off. We've travelled right the way around the country on trains, buses, taxis, tuk tuks, boats and foot ,in fact about the only form of transport left is paragliding but there's still time!!! Night buses are an odd thing, greatif you're in a couple as you share a double bed type thing the whole journey but weird for single travellers having to get that up close and personal with a stranger, but hey it may catch on, cuts out speed dating and starts you off at second or third base, god i feel a money making scheme for London, bus dating, completely random match ups with strangers around the country's main attractions, gives a whole new meaning to hop on hop off travel !!!!big ben at night!!!!! I suppose it could even be advertised under mystery tours!!!!

Anyway where was i ? Oh yeah, leaving India, we've met some great people ( and some absolute weirdos ), watched someone die, seen 75 phants in the same day, made some wonderful memories, recorded hours of award winning videos ( oh how lucky you are Chris, bet you can't wait for the world premiere!!! Sparacus come back all is forgiven.

our bus
....,we've drunk some of the cheapest booze known to man and only suffered two hangovers (christ most people in Wittering manage that in one day), and we've seen some of the most amazing things in the world!!!! 

My favoutite things?????? Egg rolls and the Himalayas in Darjeeling, Anjuna Market amazingly, the boat trip from Allepey to Kollam, Dolphin spotting in Palolem, the three seas meeting in Kanyakamari....oh and a little place in Agra called the Taj, you may have heard of it!!!!

What a shame the last few days have been marred by the senseless actions of some fucked up extremists but it's not going to stop us, weve donned the camo fatigues, blacked our faces, given B A Baracus and the rest of the A team a ring and they're going to cover us as we go in  ...next stop Singapore then KL baby.....

INDIA - DONE !!!!!!!

Well one small info: Night buses dont mix male-female in double bed seats. I mean if one seat is empty and that is occupied by a male passenger then they wont sell other birth to female passengers. Same thing other way too. Yes for a couple booking its perfect !!!
