26th March 2012 Monday

Now being a shade less than 700 Kms from Delhi and again having done this journey several times we had a late start. Another reason for the late start was that having myself being mentally strained the previous day I didn’t set the alarm clock the previous night. Second reason was that the room we stayed was so bad that I have now decided never to again stay at this hotel if I ‘m getting the same category of room.

Goa Road Trip Mar ‘12 Ahmedabad–-> Mumbai –-> Goa

18th March 2012 Ahmedabad ––> Mumbai

Again as the previous night we were a little late for retiring for the day and were able to hit the bed only at 1AM.

Additionally having done 700 Kms the previous day, the drive for this day was just a little more than 500 Kms, so we thought that I could take it easy. Further as always, whenever I visited Goverdhan Thal, I never felt hungry the next morning, hence we skipped breakfast and headed straight out for Mumbai. The hotel bill settled, we were on the road at 8AM and reached the Ahmedabad- Baroda Expressway at 830, covering approximately 20 Kms. Inside the city, being early and a sunday I encountered little traffic, but I could sense that had it been a weekday and slightly later during the day, we would have encountered much more traffic.

The Ahmedabad Surat Expressway is a drivers dream and we covered the distance of 93 Kms in 58 Minutes, clocking an average speed of 95 KMPH. I was driving at 120-130 KMPH but I guess stopping at the 3 toll plazas reduced the overall average speeds. From here we took the Baroda ByPass and the NH8 all the way upto Baruch.

Goa Road Trip March ‘12 Delhi–-> Jaipur–-> Ahmedabad

April 2, 2012 3 comments

Getting there

In my Previous Post I had broadly outlined the the trip we would be doing, places I would be staying, for my road tip to Goa. In this and future posts I would share the travelogue for the entire trip along with pictures, distance travelled, night halts, Fuel Consumption, etc,

The timings for all the travelling should be accurate as I’ve made tracklogs for the entire trip on my Garmin 60CSX.

16th March 2012 Delhi ––> Jaipur

We began the trip on the 16th of March from New Delhi. Having already tanked her up, airpressure checked we made our departure from Delhi at approx 2 PM. The reason for the late start was that we had decided to stay at Jaipur for the night which would help us to

  • Cut down the time and distance travelled the next day for Ahmedabad
  • Visit meet a friend in Jaipur and along with him goto Chokhi Dhani in Jaipur itself.

This drive was pretty much ordinary and we stopped for lunch at McDonalds before Manesar and then at Hotel Highway King on NH8 between Pragpura and Shahpura for tea.

Having already made reservations at Hotel Amer View, near Amer Fort, Jaipur we reached there at 730PM

The distance covered on this leg was 249 Kms in 5 Hours and 50 Mins coming to a total average speed (including stoppages) to 42.71 KMPH.
