On my way back, since I was staying at Vapi, I needed to come back to Gholvad, and take the next train plying towards Surat, which was to stop at Vapi. I reached Vapi, in good time, by around 8:30PM.
I cost me less than Rs.500/-, the experience of entire day.
Transport ~ Rs.200/-
Food ~ Rs.200/-
Other Bare Necessities (Chai, Biscuit, etc.) ~ Rs.100/-
But I ply frugally. Even with a little indulgence, I'd find it hard to imagine this trip costing more than Rs.750/-, if you use public transport.
If you use private transport, please calculate the cost on Petrol/Diesel based on the distance from where you leave. ^_^
I'm lazy to give you those details. :P
Stuff I carried to this trip:
1) Money (duh!)
3) Phone and Power Bank
4) Water Bottle
5) A Book and A Pen (I try to pretend to write, sometimes.)
6) A Novel - I forget, which one.
8) Some Hand Sanitizer and Facewipes
9) A Poncho (Good idea, during monsoons, I'd say.)
10) A Torch (If you are out on the road, in the dark.)
I don't know, if I carried too many things. What do you think? Enough, right, for a day trip? I try to travel as light, as possible.
Hope you enjoyed my long and detailed description of Bordi, which is one my favorite hidden gems from my Backpacking times, last year.
Happy travels, peeps! Enjoy Bordi, and let me know once you did! ^_^
Cheers, and out.
