    Dear All,
    This is my first Travelogue on this forum...

    I have FIAT Punto 1.3 MJT Emotion Pack purchased in 2011. First I am going to upload all the images of the TANK :happy: in action and then as the time permits there will a write up about the event. This was an organized motoring event starting from Delhi to Delhi about 1500 KM. I started this drive from Nagpur and finished it at Nagpur itself covering a total distance of 4210 KM. It was a 10 day drive for me and the route maps are the following...

    This was organized by Adventure Overlands ( http://www.adventuresoverland.com ), a Gurgaon based adventure tourism organization that transforms.. Tourists.. to Travelers and finally to Adventurists. I would be updating this thread mostly two or three times a week. So hope that all of you enjoy the same and I get some valuable feedback on writing such a travelogue. Some of the pictures are clicked by me and some by the co-drivers in our convoy.

    In a true sense The Punto has proven to be Built Like A Tank!

    Fantastic pictures and am sure, the experience will be treasured for a lifetime.

    BTW, Wow, what a daring effort to drive the car through running water. Hope that wouldn't hurt any sensors in the bay.

    Lovely. Do share how you ensured safety of car while crossing those water streams. The 2nd one looks quite deep, but the flow is not forceful it seems.

    Water crossing pictures are amazing. Looking forward to reading on how exactly you managed to handle these water crossings.

    Seriously, adventurous in its true sense. Keep them coming. Did you get any check engine light when you crossed the water or did you cover the sensor knowing it will come on:)?
