It was quite some we had been on a long "leisure" road trip, and plan started with better half as our wedding anniversary was nearing. There were many destination considered like Munnar, Coorg, Pondicherry, Goa, etc, and there was only one disagreement. I wanted enjoy more drive on our new T Jet, and wife was more interested in going to some place nearby and stay there relaxing for few days. Few short drives around Bengaluru on Linea, and she was okay to experiment this time spending most of our time on road. And we decided Goa as our final destination. Bangalore to Goa via NH-4 was the first route considered, but I always had a feeling that it will become bit boring after some time, and was not much convinced to take this route. What do we do now? It was November and Western would have retained its greenery. So the final itinerary was made: Day-1: Bangalore - Channarayapatna (to visit a temple visited by fore fathers) - Aresekere - Jog Falls Day-2: Jog Falls - Murudeshwara - Idagungi - Karwar Day-3: Karwar - Goa Day-4: Goa Day-5: Goa - Karwar - Bankapura - Tumkur - Bangalore via NH-4 Ohh, I just forgot that we now have a company, 11 months old kid, who had never been on any drive which lasted more than 2-3 hours. Being not sure how comfortable our daughter would be on this drive, we decided not to pre-book any hotel. Leaves approved, shopping done, bags packed, Jet fueled, and we were ready to take off on early morning of 23-Nov-2015 T Jet was ready to cross its 1K Kms milestone. We started at around 6:30 AM, and took NICE road till Nelamangala, and then started towards Channarayapatna. This is infact my first ever travelogue, and I am not good in writing, so I would let some pics to tell the story now.
