With the approach of the weekend, I was again on my way to explore the exotic locations of my beautiful country. This time, I have planned to visit Allahabad and to get the most out of my visit; I booked my tickets for Saturday night on JSM JP Express. The train left Jaisalmer station exactly at 11.05 PM. I would have to stop at Jodhpur and then catch another train to Allahabad. As per the timetable, the train would arrive at Jodhpur Junction at 4.30 AM, with ½ hours halt time there. I set the alarm on my phone for 3.30AM and fell into a light sleep. As such, I do not sleep soundly while travelling in trains.
At about 4.05 AM, the train reached Jodhpur and I scrambled out of the train along with a few other passengers. Since it was quite early, I decided to spend some time in the waiting room. At 5.30 AM, I called a cab. My destination was Hotel Megh Niwas Jodhpur, which I had pre-booked online for a room. The distance to the hotel was about 5 kilometres.
The hotel had all the facilities and the amenities that travellers like me would enjoy. The exterior of the hotel looked like a huge castle with lights that would make the lodgers happy and relaxed. There were exquisite paintings hung up on the walls of the lobby. My room had a good ambience with good lights and wall decors. The bed was cosy and the room had a television, a refrigerator and Wi-Fi connection along with the other regular amenities.
I freshened up and went down to the restaurant to have my morning beverage and breakfast. The name of the restaurant was Klay Oven and the food was delicious. Being a foodie, I would say that the meals that I had at this restaurant gets a full thumbs-up from me.
The train to Allahabad was on Monday at 11.30 PM and as such, I had to spend time in Jodhpur until then. I visited some temples nearby and the gardens, which were located near to the hotel. I even tasted some mouth-watering dishes while in Jodhpur.
On Monday, at 7.30PM, the hotel receptionist informed me that my cab was ready to take me to the railway station. I reached the station in about 20 minutes. The train, JU HWH Supfast (Jodhpur-Howrah Superfast), was already at the station. I settled down in my seat and at 8.30 PM, the train pulled out of the station. I would reach Allahabad at 2 PM on Tuesday
