INDIA ROAD TRIP – DAY 9 – VAPI TO ANAND

Posted by on Oct 6, 2013 in INDIA ROAD TRIP ARTICLES | 0 comments

Around 10 AM I started from Vapi to my next destination Anand. Anand is home to the famous Amul Dairy. I had called and booked a hotel from Vapi before I started. The drive was cool and enjoyable as the roads were great on this stretch throughout the trip. I was in Anand sooner than I had estimated. It was around evening and my car was low on fuel. I recall struggling a bit to find a good fuel pump (gas station) near the place where I was planning to stop by for the night. Finally found one. Filled the tank to the brim and started looking out for the hotel that I had booked. After a bit of...

INDIA ROAD TRIP – DAY 8 – KOLHAPUR TO VAPI

Posted by on May 30, 2013 in INDIA ROAD TRIP ARTICLES | 0 comments

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Kolhapur – especially the food (fast forward…as I go round India I personally felt it was the tastiest of all food that I had anywhere – except for a strong competition from one restaurant in Agra). It was finally time to bid farewell to Kolhapur. With the passing days and being on the road for almost 7 days, I could feel the hard-core traveller attitude dawning upon me – maybe for good. As usual I did call up home and had a lengthy discussion on my further travel route. I was already 2 days late on my journey due to the out-of-the-plan 2 extra...

INDIA ROAD TRIP – DAY 6 – MURUDESHWARA TO KOLHAPUR

Posted by on Nov 3, 2012 in INDIA ROAD TRIP ARTICLES | 0 comments

Day 6 – Murudeshwara to Kolhapur The Trip from Murudeshwara to Kolhapur was quite adventurous to say the least. The highway from Murudeshwara took me towards North. Things went fine till around 50 KMs – the point at which a straight road point to Gokarna, while the Google Navigation installed on my Xolo Smartphone gives me an instruction to turn steep right into something which it refers as NH 66 (if I recall it correct). As I enter into the Highway, it looks pretty narrow to be a National Highway. Soon I realize that its Karnataka State Highway 143. This highway takes me through one...

INDIA ROAD TRIP – DAY 5 – KANNUR TO MURUDESHWARA [VIA MANGALORE]

Posted by on Nov 3, 2012 in INDIA ROAD TRIP ARTICLES | 2 comments

Day 5 – Kannur to Murudeshwara (via Mangalore) I started off from Kannur without a clear expectation of being able to reach Murudeshwara the same day. The drive was tough across this stretch as I had to negotiate the ghat’s curvy roads. The travel was again slowed down within Kerala due to narrow and congested roads. I saw Bekal Fort and other roads leading to various beaches in Kerala but I controlled myself from deviating off the Highway as I was running short on time. After many hours of drive, I finally make it to Kasarkod which is at the border of Kerala. Soon I reach a board which...

INDIA ROAD TRIP – DAY 4 – PALAKKAD TO KANNUR

Posted by on Nov 3, 2012 in INDIA ROAD TRIP ARTICLES | 1 comment

Day 4 – Palakkad to Kannur It’s already Day 4 in my road trip! The travel through the narrow Highways coupled with high congestion on the road has put my road trip to a very slow pace. I am struggling to cover even 200 KMs on these Highways. But nevertheless the enchanting beauty of the place is keeping me occupied. Unfortunately I did not get much of a chance to capture a lot of photographs in Kerala as I was in a hurry to get out of the congestion which had put a hold on my road trip. The Trip from Palakkad to Kannur was via Ferokh-Palakkad Highway and NH 66 which soon I realized was not a...
