After slogging for weeks in the office , I thought that I should gift my self a long weekend trip to somewhere near Delhi . I began shortlisting the places and the first place that came to my mind was RAJASTHAN - THE LAND OF RAJPUTS . I was always fascinated by the bravery and the grandeur of the Rajputs and the way they had carved their name in the pages of history through their valour .
There was a long weekend coinciding with Diwali Holidays , so decided to go on Rajasthan Road trip . Did I mention that it was a solo trip on Activa ?
I rented an Activa from WHEELSTREET (bike renting platfform) well in advance for 5 days and and cost me 2300/- INR excluding fuel . The Activa was in good condition and it fared pretty well through out my journey .
To my bad luck , I received Activa 1 day late due to some issues with Wheelstreet and as a compliment they gave me 1 day extension .
And the trip begins ::
I was already behind my schedule as planned as I had recieved the scooty 1 day late . I left from Gurgaon at 2 pm in the afternoon and reached Neemrana Fort after 2.5 hours drive which included a half n hour pitstop for a quick snack . By the time I reached the fort was already closed for tourists (at that time I had no idea about the timings). The timing for the tourists are 9 AM to 3 PM . I reached there at 4.30 pm .
A bit dejected , I planned to continue my trip furthur to jaipur which is around 170 kms from Neemrana Fort .
I drove for around 3 hours without any pit stop and reached Jaipur at around 8 PM. There are plenty of good & budget hotels in Jaipur for a night stay to look out for . I had already booked one online for 693/- per night . I checked in for the night and got some rest because the next day The Pink City was as awaiting to be explored.
