Road Trip- March’13 South-Western Gujarat Coastal Drive
Its March again and time for another Road Trip or Driving Holidays as my family now calls it. Last year we went to Goa and the year before that it was Gir & Diu.
Well this year we’ve decided to add a couple of destinations to the March 2011’’s plan and including Gir & Diu we would be visiting and exploring the city of Gandhinagar, Ahmedabad, Diu, Gir, Porbandar, Okha, Chorwad, Jamnagar, Zainabad and Udaipur.
PHEW!!! that’s a lot many destinations, ain’t it. Well the way we think that we are not hell bent upon covering all the places or limiting ourselves just to these destinations. If some or any of the destinations are left behind we do put them in our bucket list for future trip. These trips that we take are quite laid back and we try and succeed to make them enjoyable at the least.
The plan or this year is that we drive one day, take rest the next day and then again drive the day after that. This way we avoid canon ball runs and at the same time get to see the local sites at the cities that we visit.
The total driving distance on Google Maps for this planned trip is a little more than 3500 Kms but I reckon that it might be a couple of ‘00 kms more as I plan drive through the Little Raan of Kutch starting from Palasava and ending at Zainabad. For this I really have to thank my friends Tanveer and Harsh Vardhan who have shared with me their GPS Tracks of the cross country driving they did on the RAAN. But as I said earlier, I am not bent upon covering everything. If anything’s missed, it goes securely in The Bucket List for the next time.
Enclosing here is the brief overview of the trip that we’re proposing to undertake.
So all in all most of the think are planned. For hotel we have booked rooms just at Ahmedabad and for the rest of the trip have spoken to some of the hotels in the cities that I plan to visit. So it would be mostly walkin’s only. Being off-season I don’t hope that we should have any major issues in scouting for hotel room at this time of the year.
Well that’s it. Cheers for now
