On the road update Sasan Gir- Jamnagar- Udaipur
25th March 2013:
I’ve been a bit lazy with updates for my blog. So toady’s the last day of the tip and I’m posting this from Udaipur.
On the 22nd of March after spending two days in Sasan Gir it was time for us to head to Jamnagar, our fourth city. We started early around 9am and visited Deviliya enroute to Jamnagar. I dropped my earlier plan of doing the coastal trip via Somnath, Porbandar, Dwarka and then Jamnagar as I did’t want to do a canon ball run and wanted to take it easy while doing this coastal route and give time at each place I stop and take it in. The route we took on this day was Sasan Gir- Deviliya- Malkana- Junagarh- thru City- Jetpur- Goandal- Rajkot- Paddhari- Dhrol- Dhunav- Jamnagar. We arrived in Jamnagar at approx 10 mins to 3 PM.
After spending a day in Jamnagar on the 24th of March Sunday we stated our journey to our last halt Udaipur. Again I avoided going to Zainabad as it had become quite hot during the day time, and personally I having witnessed the heat in the RANN a couple of time as a Rally Marshall, I didn’t want the kids and wife to experience it at time time of the year. I decided that we would be doing the Little and Great Raan later this year, maybe during the Dussara or Diwali break. The route taken during this day was pretty straight forward. Starting from Jamnagar at 930 AM the route we took was Jamnagar- Dhrol- Paddhari- Rajkot- Chotila- Syala- Limbdi- Bhagdora- Bavla- Ahmedabad (lunch break at Subway)- Gandhinagar- Himmatnagar- Udaipur (630PM).
After staying for a day in Udaipur, tomorrow morning we would be starting our final leg of the journey and heading to Delhi. The plan is to start early from Udaipur and be back home by 7pm ish.
Thats all for now. Thanks to all for taking the time for going through and keeping a tab on my updates.
PS these are just on the road updates, and I would surely be penning down a detailed travelogue once with pictures, road distances, places visited once I’m back home.
