First we stay in Hotel Moti Mahal in Ahmedabad. Then we walk to the railway station.


Then we went to Veraval in Somnath Express. Then we took a auto. Then we stay in Shivam Hotel. It was a bad place. There was smell of fish. Then we saw the sea and the sun set. The sea waves come and go. The waves were so long. Two days we stay in Somnath.

Then we took a taxi to Hotel Annapoorna in Sasan Gir. We went to crocodile farm, Gir forest. There was an open gypsy. We sat in open gypsy and in safari we were covered in dust. I put my kitkat in the pocket and I forgot to take it out. So it got washed in Noida.

We saw a leopard in Gir Forest. The guide’s name was Leopard Lucky. Then we stayed in Anil farm house. It was a very beautiful place. There were 600 mango trees. I saw buffalo giving milk.

I saw so many vegetables.

Next day we go to the river. There were so many birds. I saw a plant at Anil farms which folded when I touched it. In Anil farms there were so many colorful leaves and flowers.

Then we took Tavera to go from Sasan Gir to Junagadh. We stayed in Leo Resorts.

I don’t know what it is, but I blew air in it !

The food was very oily. There we saw a rock it was fully written over.

Then we go to Uperkot. Then we go to Suraj Fun World. There we took a slide with water. The boat slided with water. Then we took a horse ride, it went like a train track on the upper side and we have to pedal it to make it move.

Then we took an auto to go the railway station. The train was late so we took a room at station. Train came at 11:30. So Mummy woke me up. Then we catch the train and slept in night.

We took a flight spicejet from Ahemdabad to Delhi.

    Rachit, my six year old kid wrote it. When he wrote the draft, and I suggested him that I can type it for him, he told me that Papa, this draft is written as “JIGSAW Puzzle”, but for your help I have also written on side portions which line to match with which one”.

    But he could not wait for me to find time to tpye it for him, so he took the initiative.

    Later on when I typed it for him, he dictated it to me, solving the puzzle (created by him) on his own :)

    He selected the photographs to be posted, out of which a few of them are taken by him only. He is happy as with it he is becoming a Travelogue writer.

    “The sea waves come and go.The waves are so long” what a beautiful and simple waw to describe the nature;and the
    innocence in the unteachered style has the charm of its own.I can imagine Rachits eys bulging after the buffalo giving milk., and the vegutables in natural habitat,instead of bazzar,.The proud father should take a bow.God bless you Rachit,

    Awesome work Rachit, you’ve become a pro already. Your parents must be so proud of you!
    Your trip to Gujrat sounded so much fun, sure you’d have enjoyed a lot.
    So did you get another Kit-kat since the one in your pocket got washed? :)

  • smitadhall says:

    Awwww…. very good story, I am impressed that you remember every thing out of so many places you went to. And I almost forgot that you all went out to so many places with a new guy around this time – Tanmay! Congratulations to your parents for having taken you guys so extensively to far-off places.

    Seeds of “ghumakkar-giri” being sown everywhere :)

  • Ram says:

    God bless you and your parents Rachit.

    Superb. You not only remembered the places and the things you saw, but also tried to put on paper.
