Letter from our honeymoon… part 3…

The next installment – I was really getting into the relaxation of the holiday by then – loving the mix of luxury and backpacker hotels and getting ready for some train excitement…

Udaipuris supposed to be Rajasthan’s most romantic city which inspired lots of you to give us gifts to use there – we spent three gorgeous days there taking in the many sights and indulging at the spa!!!

Ranakpur – Jain TemplesThis is one of the biggest Jain complexes in India. The main temple has 1,444 pillars supporting it – with no two pillars alike.
Jodphurthis was a really impressive town – the fort was without doubt the most amazing we saw, beautifully preserved and bustling with people. The market place was also really colourful and lively and well worth a trip.
