Longer vacations are easier to plan when compared to the weekend ones. Last month, I was in Leh (my happy place) for over two weeks. On our way back, my husband and I had 3 days in Delhi before the flight back and had no idea what to do. A little bit of googling of the nearest places to visit from Delhi gave us an extensive list. We picked the most intriguing option from that and got ready for the unplanned trip.
The first image that pops into one's head at the mention of Rajasthan is Desert; the brown pearls shimmering over the scorching sun. Contrary to that, Rajasthan has its fair share of hills too. One such exquisite city in the lap of the Aravali hills is Alwar.
As the distance was just 160 kms from Delhi, we decided to rent a bike and ride. The weather prediction said little rain and pleasant weather, so we geared up in our jackets, boots and set off on the monsoon ride.
