    So on this trip to Jodhpur, we went further ahead to Jaisalmer on a raodtrip. (But of course, you know that already.) And it was fun! The first time ever we witnessed the majestic Thar Desert! It was unbelievably incredible. Sam Sand Dunes. Episodes of the deserts.

    The endless road leading to Sam.
    Making our way from Jodhpur at 4 in the morning, we started off for Jaisalmer. We were super excited to camp in the desert for the first time and to explore The Thar. :D So, Sam Sand Dunes are like another 40/50 kms ride after reaching Jaisalmer. That journey is just wow!

    The roads were beautiful and I was loving every moment of being on the road irrespective of how tired the road journey made me. We reached at about 3 in the afternoon to the desert camp that we had booked. It was amazing how they welcomed each and every guest in such homely way.

    The royal welcome.
    After a very royal welcome, we were shown our tent and wow! I adored it! We changed and rested for a while after which we were to go to the Sam Sand Dunes! For the jeep safari! Yayy! We came out in time and there waited our Jeep! :D

    The jeep safari.
    Going for the jeep safarii was so much fun! We enjoyed like crazies! It was scary, but fun. And wow! The desert looked so surreal and majestic! The sun shining bright on the sand and as far as the eye could see, only sand. It was magnificent. Really.

    Quad bike ride.
    There wasn't just Jeep safari but other adventures to try as well. This was the quad bike ride. The vast sandy terrain was a golden dream. It looked beautiful and extraordinary. To be there was another check on my list. :D

    Camel Safari.
    So, after the jeep safari, we were left off in the desert. There waited for us our camel, Gopu jii for our camel safari! As we got onto Gopu jii, we burst into peels of nervous laughter. The camel ride was no less than constantly jolting oneself back and forth. It was hilarious.

    The local musicians.
    After churning our stomachs and laughing like crazies for so long, we explored Sam Sand Dunes on Gopu jii. Arsat Bhaii told us stories of how different movies were shot here and how Gopu jii was a part of the movie shoot of "Bajrangi Bhaiijaan" and we listened and watched in awe.

    The local artists!The flute rhythm.
    We could not help but acknowledge how delightfully the musicians here played the instruments and sang! It was wonderful. We were dropped off to enjoy chaii and watch the sun set over the majestic Thar. It looked marvelous. We spent some time clicking selfies with Gopilu jii too!

    The sunset!
    The sunset.🖤 It was magical! We sat in the sand, played in the sand, clicked in the sand! It was very well communicated to us that anything, if dropped in the sand, won't come back. So we played carefully! :P Oh! What an experience! It was exquisite!

    The sun gradually turned crimson red and slowly slipped away in the distant horizon. We sat there for a while, chatting with the locals and how life was in the desert. Which was sadly enough, rough. Now that the sun had set, Arsat Bhaii asked us to head back to the camp.

    The graceful dance of the lady.
    This pretty lady met us while we were just about to return for our camp and insisted us to watch her dance (which was paid, of course.) It's surprisingly remarkable how happy these people remain irrespective of the harsh conditions they are exposed to in order to survive here.

    The live dance performance.
    So we sat in the open circled seats where we were served snacks and performances one after the other kept us enchanted. They put up a great show. We enjoyed our hearts out! Instruments being played, songs being sung, and dances being performed. What not.

    The welcome as beautiful and as grand as Jaisalmer's, you won't witness anywhere else. It's heart warming how guests are treated as Gods in this state. 'Atithi Devo Bhava.' We sat there in astonishment as they kept singing and singing and the ambience began to turn so magical!

    The environment turns magical when people so whole heartedly sing for you. The batch of artists changed after a while. And these artists were enjoying themselves so much! It was overwhelming. Everybody just loved how enticingly they performed for us. It was beautiful.

    There was just no end to this. One after the other, these artists did not cease to surprise us by their talent! We thoroughly enjoyed! Had a great time. And even danced along with the dancers. After which, we were to proceed for dinner. The grand style.

    The Rajasthani Dinner.
    Since we were too busy eating such a delicious Rajasthani dinner where the dishes ranged from kher sanghri to gatte ki sabzi, khatti kadhi, churma and so many more, we hardly got time to capture it. :P Too occupied already, no. So after a heart full of dinner, we headed out.

    The beautiful little abode of ours.
    This was a shot of the tent we took in the afternoon, where now, we were heading to. Tired and exhausted. Once in bed, I slept so sound that I do not remember a minute of it. Waking up in the morning, we were served breakfast after which we went for another adventure! :D

    Parasailing experience.
    The last adventure that we were all set for! :D This was parasailing! And God! It was scary good! To go into the air from the land as it vanishes beneath you! It was one exciting experience!
