Best vacation you’ve been on?

One of my most memorable vacations was a trip to Jaisalmer in Rajasthan about three years ago. The highlight was exploring the Thar desert through camel and jeep safaris, immersing myself in the vast, golden landscapes that seemed to stretch endlessly. What made it truly special was getting the chance to visit the India-Pakistan border, witnessing it from a unique perspective that added depth and significance to the whole journey. The combination of adventurous desert explorations and experiencing such a historic border made it an unforgettable vacation.
