In this post I bring you a video of Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur, Rajasthan. I was damn lucky to stay there. I have been lucky with travel in general for this year. This week I have been at home, so I started counting the number of trips I have done so far. The tally stands at 10. The trips have been of small duration, but I am not complaining.
However, when you travel frequently, all the trips start merging with each-other. I detest that. I used to flip through the pictures but I now end up clicking so many pictures that it has become a task like anything else.
Making a short video out of my most favored clips is the only way now to refresh the memories in a few minutes. So here we go, with the video of my stay at the Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur.
The trip feels as surreal today as it felt when I was there. I still believe that I will remember this stay at the Umaid Bhawan Palace when I grow old. This was the only time in my life when I used a tripod to include myself in the frame! On second thoughts, maybe I should make a habit of it!
This was also the time when I consumed Champagne by the buckets. As I am alone on most of the trips, and I hate to make a nuisance of myself, I have a self imposed limit of two glasses of wine. Here instead of changing the glass they would top up the glass!
I missed out on two things during my stay. I did not go for a swim in the outdoor pool. And I missed out on the evening shots of the Mehrangrh Fort from the palace! And I can’t even say I will go back again!
What do you have to say about these short videos?
PS. My trip to Umaid Bhawan Palace was sponsored by Tripadvisor and the Taj Hotels.
