Last weekend went pretty well. I must say, June is a pretty stressful month with so many important birthdays including mine.Stressful in deciding on all the gifts, deciding on whether to celebrate the birthday with friends or family and deciding on how to throw a surprise birthday party though I don’t like to have any surprise for my own birthday.
Last Weekend, we decided to take a road trip to Chitradurga , which is almost 230 kms from Bangalore.
Chitradurga is known for its fort surrounded by boulders.Built in the 15th century, the fort was headquarters of Nayakas. There are seven concentric ramparts to this fort.
Everything get more exciting and fun, when it is less planned.Trekking to Madhugiri fort was one such thing that happened when I stayed over at a friend’s place last weekend.
It could have ended like any normal weekend with a movie and a dinner.But, then our sudden plan for a trekking made all the difference. It was so adventurous and fun that cannot be expressed in words.It might look as if I am exaggerating, but trust me I have not done anything scary like this before.
Day 2 at Ooty started off really well. The hotel arranged a private tour to Coonor and we were glad that we don’t need to take an effort to do it all by ourselves. We got ready by 9 and had our complimentary breakfast and was all set for the tour.
Coonor is almost 30 kms away from where we stayed.The cab came by 10 a.m and we started to Coonor. The weather was all perfect with some drizzle at times. Read more
It’s so obvious that long weekends are not complete without a trip. This time, for the Independence day weekend, we planned a trip to Ooty-Coonoor hill station.
If you have done your college in any part of South India,you might have already visited this place for sure.However, I could hardly recollect any memories related to this place from my college time.
Ooty and Coonor are two major hill stations in the Nilgiri District.It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in South India.It is less than 300 kms from Bangalore which makes it a perfect weekend getaway. Read more
This has been an overdue post from June. Ever since after my Hampi Visit, I was planning to do this post. But, I could not complete and publish it for many reason. So I thought why not do it now. It’s better late than never. 🙂
Hampi is famous for its historical importance. There are various magnificent monolithic sculptures and important building and monuments preserved and maintained well. Here I thought of sharing the historical structures which we have seen during our visit with its importance. This could help anyone who visit Hampi some idea of each monuments. These cannot be missed during your visit in Hampi.
