Sometimes my wanderlust soul is thrusting enough to do so ….YES the unplanned journey. I will say is the best quest one can take and once in a life is a must to discover oneself. It is always more adventurous as we are not expecting anything here.

So I just booked the tickets a day before and headed to Vadodra( how to reach details are below).From Vadodra then I took a bus to Ahmadabad , since my bus to Diu was at night , so decided to go around the city a bit . Didn’t new that it was such a wonderful place next time will spend more time here.

I went to the Sabarmati River front and Adalaj Step Well.

Also did some city shopping… cannot miss on that.

An overnight bus from Ahmedabad to Diu. Next morning I reached Diu and by 10 am checked in to my hotel.

First word was WOW… entering the small island …. Passing by the sea side, looking at everyday things….. I was very excited, locals must be thing of me as cuckoo but who cares and it was my first island.
