One night before leaving i.e. 29th Dec night, I and Naveed went to Fawad's house to sleep there because he lives near Canal road and Lahore Ring road from where its easy to bypass all Lahore's traffic to get onto N5 towards Multan.
So on that night we went to a superstore nearby and bought lots of eating and daily routine items (Like Biscuits, dry fruit, cold drinks, Juices, Some first aid items, pain killers, anti allergic medicines and toiletries ) which we can need during our trip. We also got one big hard plastic can of 35 Litres for Fuel so that we can fill and use it on Coastal highway.
First of all excuse me for not uploading great pictures at the moment, because getting pics from Fawad's DSLR is more than a year long project....!!!!
We packed the car in night so that we can leave on time in the morning. We slept around mid night and wake up at 6am in the morning. We had light breakfast with Tea and Biscuits and left the home at exactly 7am.
This is the first pic on the road from mobile (though not very good quality).
We followed N5 upto Khanewal, since it was winter season so as expected we faced fog on many places but the Fog condition on Khanewal-Lodhran Expressway E5 was worst, (E5 is recently renovated and in very very good condition) we have seen more than 10 head to tail accidents mostly trucks bumping each other from the back, and later on we saw on news that 5 people died in these multiple accidents. Since we were here around 11:30am so the density of fog was reduced but we were very very carefull and drove very slowly.
Anyway - we stopped at BBQ tonight on Bahawalpur-Lodhran road for the first lunch break. Fawad called his cousin to come there and he joined us there on lunch. Using this opportunity we gave our car to nearby tyre shop to check all tyres and spare tyre to make sure everything is perfect.
After this we started our Journey again and our next stop was Bismillah Restaurant in Zahir Pir chowk on N5, I have to deliver some gift to my friend's brother who lives there.
So we had our tea break there and started our Journey again towards south.
After more than 10 hours we were at Punjab-Sindh Border area called kot sabzal and here we observed the sunset
At 5:40PM we were at Ubuaro toll plaza which was our first city of Sindh. (again sorry not good quality phone image in dark).
Finally we reached Panu Aqil cantt enterance at 6:53PM, where one of my friend (who is serving Major in this cant) has already booked a room for us (we paid for everything though). He had already given our names, CNIC, car number etc to the reception and to house keeping as well.
After reaching there, we placed order for food and meanwhile we got fresh and changed dress. Here is the room:
As usual Me and Naveed sneak into bed and Mr. Fawad has to sleep on mattress on floor as shown here - hahahaha
After dinner we went for a walk and took some pictures around the area, though it was dark but we thought we may not get enough time for this in the morning.
But we didn't miss the chance to take pictures in the morning too
