  1. Hi Richa, I had never heard of Taurus truck before. Sounds so interesting. I’ve seen similar truck trips in Africa where they are very popular. In US people get their own RVs. I’ve never tried either. We love road trips but we just drive ourselves to hotel, Airbnb, resorts etc. but I’ve always wondered.

  2. This is certainly of the beaten track and right up our alley! I would love to experience something like this with my kids when they are older! Great post and lovely photos

  3. I love how you describe Taurus as tough and muscled body. I think you summed it pretty well lol. I guess that’s exactly what you need to go off the beaten track. I would love to experience the white desert sand of Bhuj. It would be interesting to immerse myself in the nomadic lifestyle of the people there too!

  4. I had never heard of Taurus truck before. But yes Rann of kutch fest is incredible and must visit to explore Gujarat. Road trip from Bhuj to kutch is just amazing. Great post.

  5. I LOVE offbeat travel! Great post – I love detailed posts like these that lay out all the details. Looks like a beautiful trip!
