Today I thought why not to share my above travel details with fellow members and readers, so here goes our basic purpose of above journey was to visit Shirdi Sai baba, booked train tickets well in advance and a known tour operator booked Innova for Rs. 12/KM for our rest of journey.
Day1: Delhi to Mumbai
We boarded Mumbai Rajdhani from New Delhi train started at 4:40PM on time; journey was quite smooth and fast all meals are served well and completed the dinner by 8:00PM.
Day2: Mumbai Local Site Seeing
Reached Mumbai at 8:45AM our pre booked taxi was waiting outside takes us to our guest house in no time, got freshen up and had coffee, started our local site seeing around 12 noon, thank god weather was good that day we encountered little bit of rain only, we are able to cover Juhu beach, Gateway of India, Marine drive and Haji Ali dargah only as we all visited Mumbai numerous times in past so nothing new for us just roamed around and enjoyed Mumbai.
