When I used to travel from Noida to Gurgaon every day for office (ie. 2010!), there were times when I spotted a big white bus with two puppets, which will immediately, put a smile on my traffucked life. Later, I got to know that these were the buses which ply to Jaipur. At that time, my husband's and my parents were not aware that we go to trip together. Hence, we always avoided two states while traveling - J&K (because it was not very safe around then) and Rajasthan (What if someone for his family spotted us?)
Therefore, Jaipur remained a mythical place for me and the plans to visit never materialized.
Eight years went by and I could not visit Rajasthan. (Last year, I went to Jodhpur and Udaipur but those were to meet some people and not to travel.)
My journey started on Friday. It was quite an eventful start.
For now, here are some clicks from the trip.
