Hey guys,

My name Ben, 30 years, from Switzerland and I will finally be travelling to India in January.

I've been thinking about this trip for a while (there are still so many countries I want to visit, I'll never finish traveling...) I suppose that 30th birthday, which made me realize that my youth is over and time is running faster than expected, motivated me to immediately realize that old travel dream of mine, even if I don't have as much time as I wish I had...(wow, what a sentence, i guess i am getting nervous )

simply put, I can't wait to take off...

Your youth is over at 30?!?!?!?!!?

I guess that's your choice . . . your decision . . . and if going to India is a rite-of-passage from Youth to . . . ? . . . I'm 52 . . . have been going to India since I was 27 . . . India has kept me young . . . hope it does the same for you . . .

We have a lot of Swiss homestay students through our house - and all year we have been telling people we are going to India, and they do seem to react with horror... so in my limited experience, I assumed India was not a 'Swiss' type destination - so well done you for going! We might bump into you, we are 3 virgins going in January too.....

Good joke Brisso!! Couldn't resist your title on home page, I just had to check this out 4W (add a D and guess what! handy out our way!!) And another guess what - my youth is still not over and I'm more than twice your age!! Welcome to IM and hope you love my adopted country as I do, and small hint - the real India is slightly different to those romantic pictures in books, just don't be too fussy!
Every cloud has a silver lining!

This entire deflowering thing has gender discrimination connotations to me.

Deflowering does happen to many of both sexes, Hyderabadi. No gender connotations whatsoever ... think about it.

I'm sure I'll think up something by tomorrow... but in the mean time, flowers <> feminine?

Although, my fear is that, before sunrise, someone may even ask:

"Is it Polite to Deflower in Hotel Sinks?"

Perhaps, or maybe it is just uncomfortable.

Depends. I guess, on the position you take on the issue.

I met India when I was 45.

I came to live here when I was 52.

I kind-of expected that the climate etc would speed up the aging process but, having looked 30 even at 50, it had to catch up one day and, yes, it is doing.

A smile from one of the girls in the local shop makes me feel 20 again!

Guys, thanks for the comments! It's good to see that I am not the oldest one traveling through India...

I guess I am not a usual Swiss. When I told my friends that I am going to India, some of them also reacted in horror. But then again, the Swiss who fly more than 20 hours just to be in a country with a very European touch (my humble opinion) are usually not the adventurous type...

I am hoping to find something entirely different from the over-regulated west...picture idylls normally bore me to tears, so I guess I will be fine.
