Being urban dwellers, we tend to plan trips to the most popular tourist locations across the country and abroad. My recent trip to Phaltan, a small town in rural Maharashtra, had some unique and unusual experiences included in the itinerary- some things which probably we would enjoy a lot, but never really think about experiencing. These were the experiences in the itinerary that made me accept the invitation to go and stay in a hotel in the middle of acres of barren land. The trip had been planned by Jakson Inns (Read: Weekend Stay at Jakson Inns, Phaltan) in support of promoting rural tourism, and I must say I was impressed.

Breakfast by a river
‘I think they are going to serve some authentic local food at the farm’, said my co-blogger.
‘It’s breakfast at a farm, so obviously they are going to have some local food and sugarcane juice.’
What we were to discover was something absolutely unexpected and surprising.
