Just like buses...

It's now all flowing quite quickly. Over the weekend we have booked our flights to India plus some accommodation for the journey (a little halfway stopover) and then the temporary accommodation in Whitefield  (Bangalore or Bengaluru if you prefer)

We've had some great advice on houses and schooling again from the expat forum in Bangalore, so looking forward to meeting up with them once we arrive.

Furniture and household belongings container is still in the UK 🇬🇧 But that's helpful as we have got a slim time window to get a few extra boxes thrown in!!

Loads still to do but what gets done gets done, so crack on!

Visas approved

Oh my word - this is getting real now... All four of us have now been approved and our passports should be back from the India High Commission in London next Tuesday.

Stepping up a gear in the house searches now with lots of advice from some lovely people out in Bangalore.

Hopefully the furniture can be shipped in the next week so we may actually be reunited with beds, settees, pizza ovens, xboxes and lego in January!

Just need to get some flights booked and the rest of the UK bits 'closed down'.

Stage One - The Visa Applications

Well the first part is complete - application forms and all documents are now safely in the hands of the visa agents. Did we provide all of the relevant documents to satisfy the High Commission? 

The results will no doubt be available in some form later this week... but fingers crossed that its all in order!

Update ! April 2024

  20 people sharing 2 menus! When we go to a restaurant, we seem to spend a lot of time trying to keep a straight face so that we do not ups...
