More than a month after I started this travelogue while on the road and from the hotel in Dwarka, I have come to the end. This was the longest road trip we have ever taken, and undoubtedly the best so far. Vibrant means "Pulsing or throbbing with life or full of life and energy". While Gujarat is definitely vibrant and offers really diverse options for tourism, it left us Vibrant and raring at the start of the new year. There are still so many places that we could not cover, but those are for another day and so are many we would definitely like to visit again.

End Credits

My Wife for keeping notes while we were on the road, which I referred later while writing the details. It would not have been possible for this log to have been as detailed without these notes.

My Son for enduring this long road trip without once complaining.

Finally thank you everyone for following, helping out with your suggestions and kind comments. It's the encouragement and appreciation that makes one share more. Please feel free to ask any specific questions and I will try to answer to the best of my knowledge from the experience. Or send me a PM with your query.

The END.
