I am back! Hope everyone had a great summer vacation.
Have fun reading and viewing my exciting travel log!
Trip 1: Pondy-Chennai-Mumbai-Shirdi
My first road trip was Mumbai to Shirdi. I heard a lot about the Mumbai traffic, got a real experience when I got struck on road for hours. We reached Shirdi for evening Aarti, had a peaceful darshan and left the next day morning to Mumbai. I flew back the same day to Chennai with some Sweets purchased at Andheri. That was my first North-India trip, short but sweet and memorable one.
After all, Mumbai is vibrant, noisy and crowded, little disappointed that I couldn't eat any street food!
One day, I took rest in my place and the next day. I flew back Chennai-Bangalore.
Trip 2: Pondy-Chennai-Bangalore-Shimoga-Horanadu-Sringeri
From Bangalore, I did another 270 km by road to my in-laws place.
After two days of family and friends gathering, the third day, we left to Horanadu –Annapoorneshwari Temple and Sringeri Sharada Peetham, both located at Chickmagalur district.
The route to temple traverses Kudremukh (=Horse face) National Park. The dense thick forest, lush greenery, mists covered valleys, chill winds, many eye-catching falls, whoever visits will fall in love instantly for the tranquility and the nature beauty of Western Ghats.
It was the monsoon season; the chill breeze and mist were covering the narrow road and many sudden curves, made me sick!
Trip 3: Pondicherry - Tirupathi
The third State, I visited was Tirumala-AP
Trip 4: Pondicherry-Kanchepuram-Vellore
The last trip but not least was the Golden temple (Lakshmi Narayani Temple) at Sripuram-Vellore-TN. A glittering (gold) temple shines through the extreme heat of Vellore!
Overall, we manage to visit in less than 3 weeks all those places, it was fun, excited and peaceful!
I will soon catching up all your posts !
