01 – Amsterdam & Brussels :

Wow! 😉 Pictures here and here

02 – Late night drive for coffee:

A crazy thought of driving to Channapatna for a late night coffee. Started after finishing our steak at Rendezvous at 2300. Was accompanied by two Ninjas, Girish & Kalyan. It was a good drive – uplifting my spirit. Came back by 0600 in the morning after lots of coffee.

03 – Drive to Jog Falls:

A drive to Alleppey didn’t happen. Weekend opened up. Over occasional street side snacks session on friday, we decided to go to Jog falls. It was on my list for a long time. No plans / preparations. We found a HomeStay near Jog falls by 1800. Falls was not in its full glory. Was bit disappointing. But we crossed over the valley and the view / experience was totally worth it.

Since we didn’t have any thing to do after dark, we decided to drive to the nearest shore line for dinner. Little did we realise that we were running out of fuel and had no option to turn back. We reached Honavara filled up the tank and stomach. Drove back late in the night. It was interesting in a way. 🙂 Good drive. Would go back for sure!

04 – Goa!

One of my longest drive so far. Enjoyed every bit of it.  Loved the drive through old goa cruising through narrow roads along the coast. Hired scooters; Drenched by rain; Lesson : King fish is expensive; Ocean is mysterious and daunting; Boat trip was hilarious; Screaming ‘Fenny’ makes good pictures. Coming back, was little tired but was fun driving at night on NH4. Intoxicated by Goa, miscalculated the return time. We reached bangalore next day morning at 0600. GooAaah! Pictures here ..

Odo: 13840. Semper Exploro!

Note : Cooking up a crazy and exciting plan for November. Hopefully it would come to pass. 😀

  1. There are two problems with your Goa photoes link.

    1) Some wordpress.com gets prefixed to the flickr.com url. So invalid url
    2) The album is marked private by Ren-C so 99% of your blog audience cannot view them 😉

  2. Thanks sankar! Fixed it. I knew that album is private. Waiting for people to -publish public- albums 🙂
