Just a quick update... we made it safely to Darjeeling though our 24 hour train ride turned into 32 hours! Needless to say it was a real eye opener for the kids... I will have to fill in the details at a latter time as I am at an internet cafe at the mo and don't have time for a full update.
I will say however the trip was totally worth it. Darjeeling is amazing... This morning we watched the sun rise and light up the Himalayas including Mount Everest. We were very fortunate to have such a clear but freezing day.
Hope you all had a great New Year though I doubt it was as eventful as ours...
Keep in touch!
