This is the trip on which we have spent the least time in planning and packing as compared to our earlier trips...thanks to the busy jobs and endless family functions to attend before we leave.
A trip of many firsts
- Ovee's first trip to the Himalayas and also the longest till date (almost 3 weeks).
- First trip that we are not taking our own vehicle, but hiring a self-drive car.
- Ovee's first air travel (We are flying to Delhi and starting the drive from there).
- First trip when we'll be staying at a King's palace. Not a palace-turned-hotel, but an actual palace of the current king of Askote.
We are covering only the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand in this trip and sticking by the rule of no religious places and no shopping.
We start on May 7 and return on May 25 after visiting the following places:
|We are consciously not vising touristy destinations -Nainital, Dehradun, and Mussorie|
Leaving out touristy places during our Rajasthan trip worked well for us. Hope it does this time too.
It's time to be in the mountains, drive on the curvy Himalayan roads, sing or play or paint in the car with Ovee, and build memories of a lifetime. It's time to rock the road, baby!!
