We want to cycle from Mumbai to Nashik and are wondering if the nh3 is very busy and if it would be better to go via Vada. It will take two days so we need a hotel halfway. If we take the nh3 we can…Continue

Mumbai - Delhi part IV: More Beautiful Rajasthan

What an imposing fort looking over Jodhpur, we liked it very much. The Bazar near the clocktower, the moonlight diner on a tempel-rooftop, the palace and the view from the fort over Jodphur and the blue city. From here we cycled to Barr, there is an RTDC midway hotel there. Because the main highway runs from Pali to Ajmer there is relatively little traffic on the road from Jodhpur. The road runs through Bishnoi teritory and it is nice to see all the… Continue

A lot of vinyards but most grapes were grown for raisins and not for wine. Also a lot of big lakes probably for storing water for all the agriculture. It was a very nice… Continue

Mumai-Delhi part I: Getting in and out of mumbai

We arrived on mumbai airport at 00.45 on the 15 of december. We had made reservations for a hotel with pick-up service via the internet. It is always a big relief when there actualy is a guy standing there at the exit of the airport with a sign with your name on it. The firts impression when you get out of the airport are overwhelming, the noise, the people, the heat and most important the smell. Your firts sniff of india has it all: spices, flowers, food, people (but also some waste and… Continue
