Todd IMPORTANT UPDATE: It's time to book the train tickets for the Great Circular Indian Railway Challenge. As Mark mentioned below, if you're joining us for the GCIRC, please visit the official Facebook page for information on buying your tickets.
The Facebook Page is here: http://bit.ly/a4x2aG
If you are not on Facebook, please leave a comment here and we'll forward the ticket details.
As most of you know, there were between 30 and 50 people interested in joining the trip. We expected the numbers to drop once it came time to book, but Mark said he already has 20 confirmations.
Personally, I think this is a very rare opportunity. Apart from the challenge (and excitement) of circumnavigating India by train, you'll also get to raise awareness for a global issue and spend quality time with other inspired travellers. Plus, unlike most epic adventures, this trip is as cheap as chips. Head over to the Facebook page to see the price of the tickets.
The Globetrooper team are on-board, plus a small group who've found the trip through this site. There's also a reasonable female contingent, so if you were worried about too many guys, never fear. Also, there are lots of solo travellers, so it's a great trip to meet others.
If you have any other questions, just ask Mark (who's on Globetrooper too) or head over to the Facebook page and leave a message.
All the best, happy travels, see you in India! :)
