Horn please, OK?
Day 1 : Delhi to Rampur, Himachal Pradesh 
When : July 2015 | How far : 480 kms | How long : 12 hrs 

We love living in Singapore. Its 2 hours away from some of the world's best beaches. But you know what they say about too much of a good thing? It makes you run for the mountains. 

Not exactly and we may have mixed up our idioms there. But the point is, we were looking forward to a trip that involved more than lying about on the beach. And boy did we get what we asked for! 

Day 8 : Bundi to Gurgaon
When : January 2015 | How far : 450 kms | How long : 8 hrs 

Bundi Palace Miniature Paintings

Bundi isn't one of Rajasthan's crown jewels and it doesn't feature on the state's list of tourist places. Its been saved from total obscurity by a 300 year old art gallery, Chitrashala at the Garh Palace, every inch of which is covered with exquisite frescoes.  
Day 7 : Chittorgarh to Bundi
When : January 2015 | How far : 210 kms | How long : 3.5 hrs 

Kumbha Palace, Chittorgarh

Chittorgarh was to Rajasthan what King's Landing is to Westeros, minus the good weather. Its the star of Rajasthan's historical monuments and today we were going to find out why. 
Day 6 : Jodhpur to Chittorgarh via Kumbhalgarh
When : January 2015 | How far : 415 kms | How long : 7 hrs 

Ram Pol at Kumbhalgarh Fort
