    Default Baa, Baba & Baby on Bike: Trip Kotli AJK

    Daily working was in progress. I relaxed my back on chair and have a look at calendar placed in front of me. Three days were already highlighted as holiday. Saturday, Sunday and 23 March.

    Kidhar chalain...Kidhar chalain...Bhimber chaltay hain.

    Instantly open Pakwheels and place a query to collect information. Some give Thumbs Up, some Thumbs Down.

    @asifcae bhai nay tu haath kharay kar diyai "yar may gia nai kabhi bhimber... warna zaroor advise deta... may bhe wait kar ra hun kisi kay response ka..... hahahhaha"

    Then @Xoofi jumped in with different venue "Or you can try a different area and go to Kotli, AJK"

    The pic that Sufian attached in his post (GulPur Waterfall) was awesome that taunt me to change my plan and he suggest me two days itinerary. Upon inquiring stay in Kotli he said "We stayed in a quite good hotel named valley view hotel opposite MCB kotli branch"

    What MCB!!!

    I instantly draft a mail to Branch Manager to get contact number and this was Mr. Sarmad Ali Naseem on a distance of 320 KM from me. He provided me desired information and assure hotel booking at very favorable price.

    Now What...its time to pack up.

    Some Teasers not Professional but Sensational.

    Default On the way...

    As now roads were not strange to us any more so I accelerate little more on return journey and scene captured by my wife on running bike so nothing special photography is available for viewers for that excuse in advance.

    Some random shots...

    Default On the Way...

    Road was like jalebi ki tarah seedhi. Now this time we were on left side of road therefore gulpur waterfall overlooked by us and we could not fill our thirst of eyes by going close to that. On the other hand we have short of time and can't be return to find that. So we continued moving. Had a little stop at this point.

    Default What to breakfast?

    We had not yet taken our breakfast so I asked wife what she would like to eat keeping in mind that we can face stomach problem if we tried non packed or fried food from any hotel. As we have our own chicken spread so she suggested to just bought a bread and she will prepare sandwiches for us. I bought bread for Rs40 when passing from a bazar and start finding any good point where we can easily have our breakfast. This is how you can save your pocket as well as stomach....

    When passing from a turn there was a beautiful view so I stopped bike and captured some snaps. A little butterfly also greeted us at this point and land on baby's upper. Baby was looking at her with mixture of wonder and worry. After gazing for some time he closed his finger to butterfly and she flew instantly and baby shocked with a scary voice "Hayeeeeeee". you can notice his face expressions in below pic.

    Default Naashta Time

    Bike got reserve now. Firstly I thought to refill at GT road but after I refilled for Rs500 for safer side before Islamgarh. We did not notice any secured and calm space for breakfast so I asked wife to wait for a little more till Islamgharh and will have our breakfast at there where we had lunch one day before.
    Finally we reached there. Hotel wala welcomed us with smiley face and started preparing tea. Now this is our Nashta time and baby's play time.

    Default Return

    After getting some rest and breakfast we were ready to go. Estimated time to catch GT road was 12 PM so no further stay ahead. Just capture some shots on the way and reached at highway in time.

    Took a little break at PSO pump somewhere on GT road just to chill ourselves by ice cream and next stop was at Kinara restaurant over river Chenab. There, I offered prayer while wife took baby to bank of river to feed him. After offering prayer, I engaged with him and wife offered her prayer. Baby was still full excited and playing and running in mosque area. There, while doing wazoo, I noticed that my cheeks are full reddish due to Sun burn that remained for a weak after trip and recovered after facials and applying creams by wife on my face.

    Default Reached Home

    Suddenly kaka g started crying for milk. Now what to do???Where to find milk on highway. So I asked wife to betray his mind by playing and talking with him till we reach near any urban area. After reaching Rahwali I entered in bazar. There, upon inquiring I found a sweet shop having boiled milk. Filled baby's feeder as well as half liter bottle, took Naan and shami kababs and asked guy to roll this as shawarma and wrapped in paper. Further stay was avoided to reach home in time before dark.

    As this was holiday so traffic was less. I crossed Gujranwala from city and it takes almost half an hour to pass. Now we are again on Grand Trunk road and at least by the grace of God almighty we reached home at exact 6 PM.

    Moazun was calling for prayer saying Allah Akbar...Allah Akbar and I replied Yes...No doubt...Allah Akbar.

    Default Final Words

    Dear friends, for most of you, this will be just a story or safarnama or travelogue but for us, this journey taught us many lessons and gave morals for life time. Every road, every turn, every up, every down, every stop and every start had lessons for those who have eyes not only on face but inner eyes, mean living hearts, for those Quran says in Surah Al Hajj, Aya 46.

    Let's END this thread for a New BEGINNING

    GOD BLESS US...GOD FORGIVE US.

    Thanks alot xoofi for your appreciation throughout the thread.

    Although I have made other short trips (Head Marala, Nankana Lake Resort and Nonar, a village ahead Narowal) on bike with same cast but writing first time in detail.

    A little effort to share my journey was made in earlier year 2014, trip to Head Marala.

    Excellent write up of a very nice journey. Very cute baby, Masha-Allah. Me and my wife enjoyed reading thru this. We also have a 1.5 year old baby boy too who loves to travel. We live abroad, and he has not seen Pakistan yet. Insha-Allah, one day, I would like to take him along the same route, my Grand parents village is in the same area, along the Azad Kashmir and Punjab border area.

    Assalam Alaikum.

    Very pleasure trip, following by an informative thread.

    Masha Allah for the young member.

    :-)
    I have learnt that I can always pray for someone when I don't have the strength to help him in some other way. Let's pray for the Mankind, Muslim Nation and our country Pakistan.
