As a resident of the pink city of Jaipur my life had been greatly affected by its rich and deep history. Waking up every morning to the sight of the age old palaces and ruins had always instilled a sense of calm in me. I am a great admirer of the different types of culture and traditions and as a result I always book vacations to interesting destinations and not just popular ones. Being over forty years old and very successful at my garment export business I have managed to save quite a lot to have a very luxurious trip.
As a history lover I always enjoy visiting cities that have very deep roots in our country’s history. Gujarat is one such state with many ancient cities with a lot of monuments and scenic places. With a little help from the internet I managed to book myself a first class seat in a Jet Airways flight to Ahmedabad. The flight was everything I could ever ask for and more. The cabin crew provided me with all the comforts of a five star restaurant including a delicious meal from the local cuisine.

Once I reached Ahmedabad I spent most of my time in the luxurious hotel meditating and relaxing. The rest of my time was spent exploring the monuments and visiting the forts in the city. With a little help from a few history books I learned of the city’s people, their ancestors and the past glories. A few days before my trip was to end I took a train to Gandhinagar the state’s capital to visit some of its more popular historical spots. I made good use of every moment in my trip by visiting all of the heritage sites. It was truly a revelation to see them in person rather than on the pages of a book!
