May I ask all Wives and Girlfriends out there? Who does all like long drives with their partner? I guess I should rephrase it as “Who all don’t like long drives?” Except a few, you all must be “and why not? After all, it’s exclusive us time.” This time it was going to be really a long ride. Starting with Jaipur once again. This is the story about which we visited 12 destinations in 12 days. Covering 2800 KM driving ourselves in along 4 states of India. From Cities to deserts, forts to skyscrapers, beaches to salt deserts.
15th Dec 2018 was a special day. My cousin was getting married in Lucknow. Both of us got our leaves sanctioned. So one more drive down to Lucknow. We attended the ceremony and reached back on the 17th early morning. Around 0900hr we woke up. The first thing I heard is “let’s go to Rann Utsav“. What!! I was astonished. For the past six months I was asking him and today he drops the bombshell. Flabbergasted I said “OK, but how? We won’t find any accommodation there, neither flights be available for Bhuj.” Next reaction I get from him is
Lets drive down, Pitch our tent
I looked at him to make sure, if he is serious, and this time he meant it. To all still unmarried’s, let me tell you, if you are looking forward to marrying a soldier be prepared for such surprises. Anyways, a lot had to perform before we start to roll, selection of routes, halts, dining, accommodation, sightseeing plan, and bag packing. After all, we are leaving tomorrow for Jaipur like a local, Pink City Revisited.
