                      Trip log Day 1

                      Day 1:


                      My journey started at 7 in the morning with a light breakfast at home n some aalo paranthas packed in foil to fuel my stomach. But before leaving for the trip i was all geared up with....



                      Fuel for me was ready but my beast also needed something to drink, so first stop was the BP pump and a small talk with the person who attended me.

                      Conversation:SURPRISE










                      I tried to change the topic from that and stretched my back for good 30min.s chatting with him, then was ready for some rough ride as my target for the day was Bundi.


                      Ripping off for now...

                            back after an extra longg break...

                            Day 2:
                            Morning welcomed me with cool breeze and the good night sleep has covered for all the tiredness. Kicked my journey forwards and next stop was Kota, passing the scenic beauty on the sides and riding along the wind and rising sun gave a very soothing feel. Roads were now better that the expected, or I should say that my expectation levels were low.




                            There are a few temples and river crossings which would make you stop and wait for some time to adore the beauty.






                            As the journey continues I saw the board of Ranthambore National Park (anyone travelling on this route in winters should definitely keep this in the list and check the migratory season). A sudden feeling of chill hits as soon as the park started may be the green belt kept the temperature in spite of sun’s efforts of helping me to warn up.





                            As I entered the city of Kota, the first thing I noticed was the road, drastic improvement in the road conditions and there are other beautiful this off-course like the temples and the nuclear power plant could be seen as you get near to Rawat Bhata Road.





                            My stomach had started making different types of noises by this time and I decided to stop for the morning breakfast. At the entry of the city there are many road side stall who sell breakfast in the morning, similar as what I saw in Jaipur during my engineering time span. Moreover you get a varied menu also, like poha, puri n aalo sabzi, etc. I ordered for poha, or rather asked for poha. Don’t know why but they eat lot of green chilies.



                            With my full stomach I wanted to sit or sleep rather than ride again but the rising sun and the running clock didn’t allow me to do that. Started my journey towards the formal reason of being in Kota that was to get my engineering degree, reached university..took a room in their guest house..kept my luggage..went for the formalities..n finally got a good news that degree will be given at 5 in evening..



                            I had enough time to scroll in Kota, exploration starts…..
