Preparing for Departure: Trek to Darjeeling

On May 6 I start my trip to Darjeeling. My flight on Swiss takes me through Zürich, with a long layover to see family, and then on to New Delhi. A third flight on Air India (woo!) takes me from New Delhi to Bagdogra. From there it’s a 1 hour car ride to the town of Kurseong where the Makaibari Tea Estate resides.

I’ll be in transit for 4 days.

Stay tuned.
