Trains, Planes cont…

…Travel Woes Continued from earlier.

8:00pm

Managed to get through to the airlines about the return trip from Udaipur. For some unbeknownst reason that booking never went through either. So neither bookings were made and now we start from scratch.

We were going to rebook and fly into Jodhpur but all the trains are booked from there. Now we have gone back to the original booking, flying into Jaipur and out of Udaipur. We used my credit card as it has the same name as my passport. So far it looks like the bookings have gone through. No rogue texts as of yet.

Immediately went to “Make My Trip” website to book train tickets but the website is not connecting…

…10:35pm

Resolved to hire a taxi from Jodhpur to Udaipur at the end of the trip. Still not sure about the road but apparently it is scenic and we will be able to see the Jain Temples at Ranakpur on the way. It will be a full days drive.

Had a difficult time with the trains as I really wanted to be in the desert at Jaisalmer for New Year’s Eve – but apparently so does everyone else. Long waitlists for the trains prior to New Year’s. So we ended up finding seats available on the 2nd and returning to Jodhpur on the 5th.

Still haven’t decided the first leg of the trip – Jaipur to Pushkar or straight to Jodhpur? Looks like lots of availability so we’ll look into it tomorrow. Next…hotels.
