  1. Long over due, upon my return I was to post this mesmerizing experience.
    Not only to boast my home town, but also, to show each one of you readers that in that lonely desert peace is what will chase you and you in turn will chase divinity and sanctity.

    It was a drive that I had never experienced before. Roads all over Gujarat are simply "Autobahn"ous for a pot-holed Mumbaikar like me.
    I covered a round trip of 2735 Kms which was perfectly timed with enough family functions to make sure I anticipate the drive. :D

    Gujarat in its true essence, is very hospitable and one can see it in the roads itself. Apart from talking about roads, I would say the discipline on the Highways is pretty commendable. Yes, there are parts that take a toll on the car, but then, it's like a drop in the ocean.

    The route of the entire trip was

    Mumbai-Ahemdabad
    Ahemdabad- Viramgam
    Viramgam-Gandhidham
    About a 12-13 hour drive with ample stops to eat the Gathiyas and drink the "cha".

    After all family requirements fulfilled, We began the next chapter...

    Gandhidham-Bhuj
    Bhuj-Narayansarovar
    Narayansarovar-Koteshwar
    Koteshwar-Dhordo
    Dhordo-"Mata Na Madh"

    I am no travelougist to actually beautify the already prevailing beauty that lies there.

    At loss of words,

    I Shall let do the photos do the talking :)

  2. The drive was most pleasant, obviously, with the Tjet with such amazing performance.
    All the way I could only imagine a nice raw sounding exhaust which is now playing on my mind. Every curve seemed like a photo opportunity with the Jet and every straight stretch of road was instigating to grunt out the heart of the jet.

    the entire trip returned an almost constant FE of about 13.7 kmpl but it was happiness for miles and miles. I never took her thinking she was economically maintainable!

    And yes! what fiat guaranteed, the Jet delivered. Appreciation.

    Heads turned, eyes became wider as the Jet effortlessly slid along the narrow pathways and "Sherries" of Gujarat "gams".

    Some more photos to help my ineffective attempts at putting it all in words...

    Nice travelogue Harsh. Yes the pics speak more than the words. Looking at the pics, I felt its wasnt you taking the T-jet for a ride but the T-Jet taking you guys for a ride. Keep the pics coming. Any information of Kutchi cuisine savoured during the trip is more than welcome, with pics of course. :D
