Scrapbook: My Indian Adventure: Volunteering in a Mental Health Hospital

The visa has finally arrived!

Several weeks after my planned departure date I am still faced with the feat of packing for a 4 month adventure. The reality that I will be living out a backpack for the foreseeable future and that I'll be switching a spritz of perfume for mosquito spray has quickly become apparent. My visa has finally arrived, allowing me to start my 13 week voluntary post at a mental health hospital 30km outside Kolkata, 1 week after my intended start and 3 weeks after my flight from LDN (I originally had plans to spend 2 weeks in Thailand).

It turned out for the best though as in the last few weeks I have managed to secure a placement in the UK for my return.
