Day 1:

Now the day had come for our “19 Days Road Trip”. Initial plan for the day was to visit Ajmer, Pushkar and Chittorgarh Fort and stay at Chittorgarh. But a night before plan changed a little, now my parents were also interested in drive but just for 1 day. So the plan for first day 1 was to visit Jaipur and next day we will move towards Indore and parents will come back through Volvo.

Luggage loaded and we started at 6:00 am from Noida, our first stop is Hotel Highway King for breakfast which is 10-12 km before shahpura. It’s a decent place to eat and that too at very nominal price. After having breakfast we started our journey again.

Our Breakfast:


Hotel Highway King:


Our first stop is Amer fort… now a day’s main attraction over there is the tunnel which connects Jaigarh fort with amer fort, it’s going to be fully operational in few months, but one can go till 500m as of now. After that lighting work is going on due to which it’s blocked.

Amer Fort:


Don't know what it is, found something unique so clicked it:


Tunnel between Amer Fort and Jaigarh Fort:


Along with parents:


Puppet Show at amer fort:


After spending almost 3hours over there, we are tired and felling hungry, so decided to go to LMB as I heard about it from lots of people, but in my opinion it’s over hyped, it has ok food and that too is costly. Now my parents are more interested in clothes whole sale markets than visiting any other fort. So I called Dkay to get the directions to the market, we visited bapu market, some market near city palace etc etc..but found that all that are available here, one can be easily get in delhi on almost same price. After visiting markets we went to Jantar mantar as its very close to the market.

Temple nicely decorated:


Hand Printing near City Palace:


At Jantar Mantar:


Mom and wifey enjoying the mausam:


More from Jantar Mantar:


Now we tired and want a hotel, so again called Dkay..he helped us in the directions as well as in getting the rooms. Dkay once again thanks a lot. After resting for 2 hours we went to choki dhani, parents liked the place and the food too. Now few pics from choki dhani.





Trying to become "aaj ka arjun":




Its almost 11PM when we reach back to hotel. After lying on bed, I realized that I am too tired and tomorrow I had to drive a lot. I had never driven more than 400km in a day, and tomorrow its almost 650km drive along with a visit to Mahakaleshwar..now i am getting little tensed. Aur yeh sochte sochte soo gaya..


Full Use Else Lose
Nice start Ankur!
