    The itch for a long road trip was always there and ever increasing after the entry of Tjet into the family. Although this is not my first one, have driven quite a few 1000km ones and a couple of 1500 Kms one. But I will still call it the first major one This trip had been in planning stages from about July 2014 but finally being materialized in November 2015, one hell of a wait!!

    This is my first Travelogue so bear with me on the writing skills which I am sure will improve as the time passes..

    First thing first, Plan your travel:
    Since it is going to be a long trip so a plan needs to be made more so a realistic plan. As for most of our generation, Google came to help. I charted down on what my priorities are and what I definitely do not want to miss. Took route guidance and distance calculations from Google Maps and accordingly planned my stay points.

    I am also visiting Ahmedabad from Mumbai after Diwali but then heading northward towards Rajasthan.

    Any particular reason to halt at Surat on the first day ? You can directly go to Ahmedabad..
