Default Venkat from Mumbai


I am Venkat, 48 from Mumbai. I love driving motobikes ( earlier ) and cars. My preferred vacation is to take a touring vacation by car. Fortunately my family also loves this idea.

In the past I have done I have done many road trips driving on my own.

1. Mumbai - Hyderabad about 3 times
2. Mumbai - Kerala once
3. Mumbai - Udipi and sourrounding areas - once
4. Mumbai - Nasik etc many times
5. Mumbai - Pune Every week

For the long trips, I also maintain a log of my Kms and timings etc. I would be willing to share this with anyone, if they so desire.

This coming summer of 2006, I plan to take a 14 days vacation driving down by road. Mumbai - Goa - Guruvayoor - Munnar - Thekkady - Kumarakom - Cochin and back is the plan.

Nice to know about this forum since I was searching all over for something like this.

Hello and welcome Venkat,

I'm sure you will be a regular contributor to our "Street and Travel Experiences" section! Dont forget that camera on the trips!
What car is it that you use for these trips?

Default My car for Kerala trip

The car that I will be useing for the Kerala trip this summer is the old trustworthy, 1999 model Honda City 1.3L. It has logged over 150,000 kms and I have given it for a good overhaul.

Getting shockups, windscreen, clutch plate etc changed for the trip. I am also planning a LCD screen / VCD/DVD player to keep the kids engaged.

Earlier car used to be Maruti 800.


PS: Thanks for asking.
