Jaisalmer...& camel trekking!

I think Jaisalmer is most famous for it's fort & Desserts....so those were the top of our things to do. Unfortunately we had a horrible start to our journey as on the overnight bus that we caught into the city from Udaipur Dan lost his shorts (they myteriously went 'missing' from the bus)...

En las Puertas del Desierto

Jaisalmer es la ciudad dorada. Construida con piedra arenisca, adopta ese color cuando el sol incide sobre ella. Jaisalmer también es nuestra última parada en la India, pero lo más destacable,… es que también es el último destino de este viaje. Aquí pasamos los últimos días antes de...

Desserts and the Desert

The bus to Jaisalmer was far better than the last one. We managed to avoid another display of my digestive pyrotechnics thanks to a chair seat, rather than a sleeper compartment. When the bus arrived we were met at the stop before ours by a man from the hotel we were booked into. He told us...

Camel Happy
