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- Drive from Goa- Mumbai- Udaipur- Delhi

Goa-Mumbai 23rdMarch2012

It was 23rd or March 2012 and was time for us to head back for New Delhi Via Mumbai and Udaipur. The earlier plan was that we’ll go to Mumbai via NH17 and take a night halt at Tarkarli, I had spent weeks preparing the GPS Tracks for that area, planning the routes with the help of HV Kumar sir, however this plan was shelved at he had already been about a week since we’d left home and the children were not up to it. Me too personally had developed an inkling that it was time to head back and maybe leave Tarkarli for a later time. The homework’s been done and the trip is surely on the cards for a later date.

Taking a final look at the place we started our 2200 Kms return journey to New Delhi at approx 826AM.

We made good time and cover 85kms were at the Mumbai Goa Border in a little less than 2 hours. Crossed the Goa Border Check Point with no issues but at the Maharashtra Check Point/ Excise Post, it was a different story. At this place I was asked to park my car and come out for inspection. This was about 7 Kms after the Goa Check Point so now I’m thinking that it can’t be the border post and must be the Excise Check Point.

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

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.
