What happens when a group of friends decide to take off to an odd 3000km+ road trip to land of kings and palaces? Obviously, one helluva ride and enormous fun! We started from Mumbai at around 4.30pm (bunking the office hours, after all!). Plan A had always been to drive wherever we could till 12am, spot book a room/s anywhere midway the route on highway and then continue journey to Udaipur next morning! Plan B never existed, until boys of the group decided to chuck PLAN A and just travel straight up to Udaipur!!! Sounds fun! We reached around 5.30 am in deserted lanes of Udaipur, with no hotels booked, with no hotels yet open to even answer our question - do you have rooms? lol..we drove to Fateh Sagar Lake, parked the car and slept in the car itself till it was 8.30am (but then that's how the road trips are!). After some tea and snacks in the car, by the lake, we again started our hotel hunt and found a very decent rooms for us. We paid 2000Rs per night for a room. Bathroom was clean, enough space to walk a ramp after getting dressed up and soft bed, what else do we need for a room? BTW, Fateh Sagar Lake was serenely beautiful, picturesque, gorgeous and chilling in the wee hours! What a beautiful lake it was!
