Journey to Amritsar

Yet again, it’s a late post. As usual i’ve been busy with college so yeah here are more pics from my trip to India. In this post i would be sharing the pictures i took in the 1000km drive to Amritsar from Jodhpur. For those familliar with the route you guys might wonder why i don’t have any pictures from the places we passed by. But yeah i have few pictures because we drove non-stop. We only stopped for food and tea. So yeah it was 30+ hours of travel. as tiring as it sounds this would have been awesome if i wasnt on a schedule. So yeah comments would be appreciated guys. good or bad! everyday is a learning experience.
