Jodhpur is a beauty. My first experience of Jodhpur has been so amazing that it will always linger as a happy memory to me. I finally got an opportunity to visit this beautiful city last week when Vivo invited me to experience Jodhpur with them. I can write that I was really excited as I haven’t visited North India much and I’d been hoping to visit Jodhpur some time this year. Getting an invitation email from Vivo certainly made that wish come true for we had the best experience in Jodhpur with a well planned itinerary.
Sanglyan joined me on this trip as well and we started our journey on the 20th which began with us boarding the flight from Bangalore to Delhi. I must write that we had a very rough start that day as we realised at 3am that our 7am flight had been delayed to 9.30 which meant missing our connecting flight from Delhi to Jodhpur. So instead of sleeping, we ended up rescheduling our flights in the wee hours of the morning and had to rush for an early morning rescheduled flight to Delhi. We were lucky that we managed to make it in the nick of time but it seemed pretty pointless when our Delhi to Jodhpur flight ended up getting delayed too eventually. I was already feeling the effect of the lack of sleep and by the time we reached our hotel, Taj Hari Mahal Palace Jodhpur, I would say that I was quite exhausted but super excited. Being in a new place always makes me excited, which I suppose it does to a lot of people, but since we were scheduled to have dinner in the sand dunes that night with local performance and singing, I could barely rest in one place. Shortly after reaching our rooms we headed for the sand dunes dinner experience which I say is amazing!
Now if I sit back and think of all the things that I did in Jodhpur, I realise that I ended up doing so many things for the first time in the three days that I was there. I experienced how cold the sand feels in the night, had dinner beside a bonfire listening to good local folk music while allowing my feet to sink in the sand, Zip-lining across forts which I’d never imagined I would do and goading my boyfriend into playing dressing up with me into the ethnic Rajasthani attire because it is so much fun! And through this post I want to thank the Vivo team for giving us such an amazing experience.
Hope you enjoyed this post and have an amazing day!
