'You are planning a bachelorette trip to Gujarat-a dry state!', that was the exact reaction my friends had when I set out on planning a trip to Kutch, but I was sure that I wouldn't allow anyone to change the location for the trip. I had my eyes set on this location for a long time, and I was sure no amount of alcohol can give you the high you get from the joy of being to places which have the power to leave you bewitched.
So, one of our friend is getting married in March, and we planned to do a girl's road trip to celebrate the occasion. The first thing we did while starting planning for it, was to cancel the obvious choice of Goa. We wanted it to be a little different from the normal trips, and I somehow convinced my friends to go to Kutch.
The five of us were arriving from different cities, so we had planned to meet in Ahmadabad, and spend a day over there as we wanted to hire a cab and continue on a road trip from there to Kutch. We had not really planned anything to do in Ahmadabad and chose to decide once we reach the place. After reaching there, and searching for places, Sabarmati Ashram seemed to be the safest option to visit, because of the rich history of the place, and also as it gave us the view of the Sabarmati Riverfront walkway, which is a beautiful area developed on both sides of the river, where people can spend their evenings. Next we went to the Law Garden market, which was an amazing destination to find the traditional Gujarati Lehenga choli, oxidized jewelry, and everything colorful. We headed to Manek Chowk area to grab some quick bites and make our stomach happy, and were surprised to see the love of Gujaratis for food. It was a long lane, where all you could find were food stalls, and it keeps bustling with activity even at 1 AM in the night.
