Velas to Ambolgad

Velas to Harnai – 46km. Our home stay host provided us with a great breakfast of home-made poa before the obligatory photoshoot prior to us setting out.

So we woke up in much better form today and after a breakfast of omlette and potato parathas we headed off early, with no definitive destination in mind other than the general direction of Ahmedabad, which we reckon will take us 3 days. Ahmedabad is the place of Ghandi’s […]
