Road trip across Rajasthan – Dos and Don’ts
Road trips are an incredible experience in themselves, and nothing beats one amidst the glorious dunes of a dessert. Strewn across the landscape like mounds of gold in the sun, the deserts of Rajasthan are one of the best places to indulge in a long road trip. We went for a road trip across Rajasthan – traversing 1,322 kilometers of stunning landscapes with an approximate driving time of 22 hours. However, as much as Rajasthan is a visual treat, it is also a tough journey through heat and dust.
So, we share travel tips about how to prepare for a road trip across Rajasthan from our experience!
Travel Tips for Road trip across Rajasthan
Firstly, while on a road trip across Rajasthan, it is absolutely integral to rent a covered car. If not, you can forget about seeing yourself clean at the end of the journey. As pretty as Rajasthan is from the inside of your SUV, it can be equally irritating travelling, some might say impossible, in an open vehicle like a jeep.
Water and Fresh fruit juices
Secondly, while on a road trip across Rajasthan, do not forget that Rajasthan is hot and dry – and remains so for most of the year, so ensure that your car is stocked with water and fresh fruit juices at all times. It is very easy to get dehydrated in the desert which can lead to your blood pressure falling.
Clothes & Accessories
Thirdly, while on a road trip across Rajasthan, ensure that you are wearing comfortable and breathable clothes. Though it was the month of December and mornings were cool enough, the sun would be scorching in the afternoons, heating up our car. Air conditioning kept us cool when we were inside, but we sweated profusely whenever we stepped out of the car. Keep a deo and face mist handy and oh yes – a huge box of tissues or wet wipes!
Finally, while on a road trip across Rajasthan, let’s talk about creating an ambiance in your car to get you through the heat and stuffiness. One often does not anticipate the heat that builds while travelling in a car for a long time. On the road, your car will definitely leave you with an itch of missing freshness – which is why the Godrej Aer Twist car fragrances are a life saviour – especially if you are travelling in a hot and humid area.
We picked up the Godrej Aer Twist car fragrance before we headed out on a road trip across Rajasthan and found the Twist to be the perfect freshness companion on our trip. The perfume mixed with the cold air and created an invigorating atmosphere. We moved in and out of our car repeatedly over the course of the journey but never once did the fragrance diminish.
Another amazing advantage of this product is that it uses a very clever gel technology which means it’s absolutely spill-proof – a prominent problem with multiple car perfumes. No matter how much your car bumps, you do not need to worry about your front seat smelling like perfumer’s laboratory. Incidentally, it is very pocket-friendly too and lasts upto 60 days, so you can say goodbye to constantly replacing your car fragrance or driving around with an empty bottle on your dashboard.
The amazing freshness inside made it easier for us to focus on road outside and we still believe that our road trip was a great one only because of this little buddy, sitting prettily on the car dashboard. Car fragrances are a must if you keep travelling and we can say with assurance that this is one gorgeous little bottle that will not disappoint you!
So, what are you waiting for? Start planning your next road trip today! And we highly recommend a road trip across Rajasthan in India!
