I was supposed to be in Thailand the previous week but the trip got cancelled quite close to the trip, it was one of those things which is beyond anyone’s control.
Now I had one week of leaves and suddenly nowhere to go. It goes without saying that it made me extremely unhappy. For 4 hours without even blinking I kept searching for reasonable airfares. My husband suggested that why don’t I go to Madagascar and when I searched for it I realized it has visa on arrival! In the end I picked up a less costly destination, Ahmadabad it was with Kutch being the ultimate destination.
All I knew before going was that I was taking a train from Ahmedabad to Bhuj and then going 40 km ahead to Devpur to stay at Devpur Homestay. It is less of a home stay and more of a grand Haveli. If you are looking for a place near Bhuj do check out Devpur Homestay, it is a truly beautiful place. It is a lovely homestay (I know I am repeating myself) and I would be talking about it in detail soon.
I am completely indebted to Mr. Krutarthsinh Jadega (the owner of the home stay) for giving me a place at his home stay at such a short notice. And more than that for planning my entire trip from there on. Without his suggestions, I wonder what would I have done! It is a lovely homestay and I would be talking about it in detail soon.
The week just flew by and I am back after visiting a few places at Kutch. From tomorrow back to work and back to proper blogging. After all today is lazy Sunday. The picture above was clicked at Mandavi Beach in Kutch, Gujarat.
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
