To Jaisalmer. In Jaisalmer. (Rajasthan, India)

For the first time, I am taking a train in India. A sleeper train for 18 hours only cost 440 INR! I expected it to be crazy. 

The train did not leave the Old Delhi station until 6PM. The next thing I know, the train is packed with locals travelling to home from work. It lasted until 9PM then I got my bed. 

It was a little cold throughout the night but I slept fine. I woke up around 6AM when we reached Jodphur then I went back to sleep and did not wake up until 8:30AM. I freshened up and had to use the disgusting toilet because I did not have any choice! I then just looked through the window as I wait to reach Jaisalmer.

The train reached around 12:15PM. 

Mr. EK from Mystic Jaisalmer where I chose to stay was outside to pick me up. It was not even 10 minutes and we reached the guesthouse. 

I got this cute little bed in the 6-bed dorm with a view.

I had brunch in their rooftop restaurant which offers a nice view of the fort. 

I tried the Rajasthani Thali which was very good! 

I chose to have dinner in the hotel next door. They also offer good views and I got to see a beautiful sunset. I ordered pasta which was okay.

First day in Jaisalmer was very nice. In fact, I loved it the moment I arrived! 

I decided to stay here for 6 nights so more Jaisalmer stories to come. :-)

I am a woman consumed by wanderlust. I am outgoing but I also love to spend time alone, live for “being yourself”. I love new situations and to meet new people.
