Touring the Land of Kings

Vipin’s parents have organized an amazing itinerary especially for me to see their home state of Rajasthan, “the Land of Kings.” I have actually done very little travel in India since most of my extended family now lives in the US and because when we did visit as children we spent most of our time at my grandparents’ homes in Gujarat.

Our tour will take us from Udaipur to Jodhpur, where Vipin’s father’s family is from, stopping in Nathdwara and Ranakpur along the way. From Jodhpur, we’ll visit the desert in Jaisalmer and then head to Jaipur and Pushkar before reaching Beawar, where Vipin’s mother’s family is from and where his cousin Shipra’s wedding festivities will begin.


  1. Hi guys!!!

    Amazing amazing blog! I wish you guys would travel more just so I could read the blog ;)

    I have been plannin to travel Rajastan as well :) Could you please tell me how many days you spent in travelling Rajastan? Apart from the wedding and how many days in each city? Would be a great help in planning my itinenary! And what was the mode of transport in Rajasthan between the Cities. Did you take the train? Or you had private transport?

  2. Hi, thanks for your kind comment, we would love to continue traveling, still looking for a way to make it economically sustainable, hopefully we'll get back on the road again soon.

    As for Rajasthan, we spent two days in Udaipur, three days in Jodhpur, two days in Jaisalmer, two days in Jaipur, half a day in Pushkar, (a day in Agra,) and two days in Ranthambhore. First half we had private transport (only because we were traveling with family and it made things easier) and second half we took trains. Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any more questions. Enjoy your trip!
