from the last post to this one...

Its been a long time I posted an entry to the blog...Since Dec 6th, the weekends have been busy travelling and meeting friends and relatives...

Virajpet..
It began with a trip to Coorg with a bunch of friends from office... It was a good trip (of course it had to be as it was to Coorg with a good group of friends..) Some nice falls, rafting in the cool and calm river ;) Also not to forget the elephant ride...

Home...
Then travel to my home town Belgaum for a week... Well nothing can beat the stay at home.. Home is always the sweet homes! Met quite a few friends after a long time...as long as after 3+ years.. It was good being at home then... Highway restaurent, Nath's vada pav, Tax canteen's mysore bhaji..alls good and price-less...

Goa...
Ride to Goa on a bullet with one of my best friend was a good one..(except for the bag that I was carrying on my back)... While on the way to Goa, the sight of Tillari sunset point was amazing... Being in Belgaum for so many and many years, I hardly visited this place... Probably because I was busying writing programs during my graduation, while my other pals bunked the class to enjoy the nature and run away from classes... While back from Goa, the sights at Amboli were awesome.. the falls, the ghat section, and the bullet ride...
Goa is a good place to visit esp to relax...however I felt, it is not the place to be during the new years eve..It is crowded and you hardly find a place on the beach or even hotels... Our objective of going to Goa was taking a long ride on the bullet...

Coorg..
Its not repetation of the previous para :) I did visit Coorg with group of my close friends again during the first second week of Jan... We wanted a calm place where we can talk about the college days..etc..and there is nothing like the home stay I always visit with friends. It is around 7 kms from the town with no mobile coverage...and when the mobiles dont have access to the network, you are free :) nothing to bother you and you have all the time for yourself to enjoy the company of friends and good good good food!

Shimoga...
Last week it was a visit to Shimoga...I thought Shimoga is a small town... well..its not.. Most of the CMs who have ruled Karnataka come from this place or a place near by Shimoga... Hotel rates are not expensive..you get a good room at a very nice price.. Travel by train to Shimoga is anytime better than travel by bus... Well there is lots to update about the Shimoga trip, I guess it will be in the fullness of time, and at the right time :) May be on some other day a blog entry on the visit would come up...
