UDAIPUR


Day 1

What a wonderful day! We woke up at six in the morning away to overcast skies. The rain gods almost ruined our plan to go for a cycling tour but by 6:45, the rain had subsided and we were clear to go. We cycled for 25 km in total, around scenic hills and romantic lakes, by the time we came back to our starting point, our clothes were splattered with mud and our thoughts with optimism. It was ideal weather for cycling, perfect weather, not too sunny and not too rainy, only a slight drizzle occurred for only about half an hour. We had never enjoyed cycling so much (except Sweden), and surprise surprise, Udaipur has cycling lanes too in some places.

After our perfect morning, we arrived mud-splattered at our hotel, took a quick shower and relaxed for two-three hours. Then, we went to Millets of Mewar, a very healthy restaurant. By the time our food arrived, it was raining cats and dogs and we luckily had a seat on the top floor, food is so much better with rain which doesn’t soak you but only sprays you from time to time! We then went to the moustache hotel (obviously after the rain had stopped), the moustache hotel was a cosy and decorative hostel. The owner kindly showed us around and it turned out that it was as good as any hotel. An hour of roaming around aimlessly in the market followed before we went back to our hotel. All of us hit the couch after that. zzz zzz…

We then went for a swim to the pool, it was brilliant and after being fully refreshed and energised, we returned to our room and now here i am:)
