It was for the very first time that I was traveling with my family which included our two-year-old daughter on a long trip. To be precise for 7 days we wished to cover Rajasthan as much as possible. Due to our work schedule along 10 – 15 days complete Rajasthan tour was an impossible feat which we cannot even think of so we decided to split our Rajasthan adventure into sections. The biggest chunk of holidays that we the people from Kolkata would normally get is during Durga Puja where the city comes to stand still and the whole city is in a party mood.

My train to Jodhpur was scheduled in the late evening and I had a good time from morning to evening. Initially, I wanted to visit Desert National Park and was discussing the travel arrangements with the hotel owner and suddenly he popped up the idea of visiting Longewala.
