Jaipur

My 2017 Indian trip over six weeks

A wonderful six week trip to India staying at our much loved Kumarakom Lake Resort and then visiting Gujart, Jaipur, Udaipur and finishing with Maharana Mewar Foundation Awards

The Samodes….So special so smooth so Samode!

I had long wanted to visit the Samode properties in Rajasthan and then someone distinguished raved about their newish safari lodge at Bandhavgarh.  That was the stimulus I needed and we arrived in mid February to stay at Samode Haveli in Jaipur.  We travelled by Shatabdhi train from Delhi where we had stayed with pleasure yet again at The Imperial.  The train journey is fast and efficient and one arrived in good time for lunch.

Jaipur- Vibrant Capital of Rajasthan

Jaipur – the pink city to which I returned in February has seen huge progress with the pink restoration much in evidence and huge new roads and a new international airport - though we arrived from Delhi on the Shatabdhi train which was both efficient and inexpensive.
