THE MOUNTAINS ARE CALLING – PART 2

Continuing my series on the Epic 10 State Trip.. If you haven’t already read Part 1 – The Mountains are Calling – Part 1 This trip was not about covering as many places as we could, but it was about going to places each one of us had wish listed since ever. All of us had…

The Mountains are Calling – Part 1

After years of dreaming, months of planning and days of shopping, we were finally off to the Land of High Passes by road from Bengaluru on our bikes! A journey spanning 10 states over a period of 21 days… Dreams do come true!

70 Curves, 3 Bikes, 1 Awesome Ride – Kolli Hills!

If you’ve been reading my posts, I’m sure you know by now how much we love Bike Rides. Long or short, it doesn’t matter. Like someone once said, “Four wheels move the body, two wheels move the soul.” One place that has been high up on our Ride-To list for a very long time was…

There are no special permits required for visiting the tourist places in…

My soul jumped with glee- Himavad Gopalaswamy Betta

As promised in the previous post, this is a small know-it-all for visiting Himavad Gopalaswamy Betta, literally translated it would mean Snow Krishna Hill. It is a small temple-hill located in the Chamarajanagar Distict of Karnataka. When plans were made that we would be visiting Bandipur, I instantly told my better half that we cannot…

Starlit New Year’s Eve in Bandipur!

The planner in me cannot sit quiet, especially around the holidays. *evil grin*. But I was extremely held up with work and so I let my other half do all the work this time. We locked in on the place – Bandipur. Ideal I would say for the much needed getaway from the maddening crowd….

Next Stop — Destination 2016!

December just happens to be my favourite time of the year. It has a sort of old school charm to it. I don’t know if it’s the weather, the holidays, the yummy plum cakes or the beautiful decorations all over the city. It’s time for Christmas and New Years, time to pamper yourselves, time for…

From Open roads to Hairpin bends – Yelagiri

Yelagiri – A quaint mini hill station in the Vellore district of Tamil Nadu. I say mini because it is not as developed as a tourist hotspot when compared to Ooty or Coorg. Which is kind of perfect. I mean you get the hill station vibe but you don’t have to wade your way through the…
