Meet Sophie

This here is Sophie - one of the girls who I'm traveling to India with! We've been talking online for months now and finally decided we should actually meet in person. So we made plans to meet at Town Hall steps. I got there first and was waiting for about 10 minutes. I was so nervous, constantly looking left and right for a glimpse of her. I had so many questions running around in my head. Will she look like she does in her photos? Will I get along with her in person? Will we recognise each other? Then a bright red hat caught the corner of my eye and as I looked over I saw a girl looking around timidly. I somehow leapt to my feet in a second and gave her a huge wave which (thank god) was returned by a huge smile :) We immediately embraced each other in a big hug and I felt like I was catching up with an old friend. And the first thing we both said to each other was "Wow. I can't believe you're actually a real person". Anyone who has had an internet friend turn into a real one probably got this feeling too. And it was good to know she wasn't really an old man with a fake Facebook account. 
The rest of our day followed by drinking lemon, lime and bitters and chai (of course). Followed by a delicious tandoori pizza (just a little taste of India). We spent hours fantasising over the Lonely Planet book and planning our trip, which now seems more real than before and just getting to know each other more. 
I couldn't be happier with how the day went, we got along so well and she is such a lovely girl. I can't wait till our next date!
