We survived the train ride from Jaipur to Bombay – it was a pretty smooth ride. Despite hoping for a companion free journey we ended up with a total of 3 other travelers – 1 was an “auntie” only on the train for a couple hours, the other a local on the train for a couple hours, and the third a backpacking Brit who went the full trip to Mumbai.
The accommodations were fairly comfy and Alyssa and I survived on our hotel pastries and water. We were too chicken to eat the food on the train.
All in all a good experience, a great way to see the country side, but probably not something I would repeat unless it was on the Orient Express. Trains just aren’t my thing.
