Long gone are the days when I waited for my birthday only because I would receive gifts and wishes from multiple people. Now I wait for "the day" because I would get to travel, and you know what...a sponsored trip! How age changes your perspective, ain't it?
This time, on my 26th birthday, he did exactly what I craved for almost a month.
Disclaimer: The blog would consist of a lot of 'he' because I can't thank him enough for making it my kindda day <3
Okay, I would move ahead now because a lot of PDA has already been done. This time, we planned to go some place real offbeat, with less tourists around but more travellers. But, it was very important for us to keep in mind that it was raining cats and dogs in most parts of the country. Hence, travelling to a hill station would be really stupid.
He knew I love mountains! So, the best possible offbeat alternative to a hill station with less rains in the month of September is a little hamlet situated in the Hadoti region of Rajasthan called Bundi.
How to reach Bundi:
Take a flight/Bus/Train from New Delhi to Jaipur--Direct train from Jaipur to Kota--Local bus from Kota till Bundi.
Will be describing more in details in the later half.
On 8th September, we took a direct flight from New Delhi. Trust me, if you book your flight tickets well in advance, the price would be almost equivalent to any volvo bus ticket. And, you would reach the pink city in no time. Voila! It was almost 10'o clock at night when we arrived at the pink city and we decided to spend the night there! Though we wanted to stay at Zostel, but due to unavailability of rooms, we stayed at Hotel Shikha in new Jaipur. The location of the hotel is pretty amazing, with a deer part situated right infront of it and one of the most popular clubs of Jaipur, 100% Rock, located just by the side of the hotel. After a classic 'us' kinnda evening in Jaipur, we dozed off in a much comfortable super-deluxe room of hotel Shikha.
